Lawsuit Filed Against Town of Ramapo

A lawsuit has been filed against Ramapo by Town Supervisor of Fiscal Services, Melissa Reimer, who was suspended from the position on June 2013. The suit states that in 2013 Reimer told Supervisor Christopher St.Lawrence and Receiver of Taxes Nathan Oberman about financial discrepancies she had been noticing since 2009, such as low balances, understating expenses, and transferring funds without the board’s approval. According to Reimer’s lawyer, Fred Lichtmacher, the statements made in the law suit are true and will be documented. The complaint was officially filed to pursue $2 million in damages, such as lost wages, benefits, and money spent on legal fees and names St.Lawrence and Oberman, as well as Town Attorney Michael Klein, Assistant Town Attorney Beth Finklestein, and Personnel Director Linda Condon. Steven Stern, who is representing those named, stated the claims against the town are not true and Reimer’s suspension is not related to her statements about Ramapo’s finances. Reimer stated in the suit that she was accused of involving the New York Comptroller’s office of the activity by sending them false information, which was later determined by the office to be correct information and because of this faced a hostile work environment. Records also state she had been in contact with the FBI a year before they raided the town hall in May 2013 and the materials are being reviewed.
