The Wales Town Board recently passed a resolution reprimanding Highway Superintendent Michael Zywar for his handling of cellphone records.
According to Town Supervisor Rickey Venditti, the phone records were removed from a secure place in Town Hall that Zywar had access to as an elected official, but he failed to notify or ask the town clerk for the records. The records were replaced by the phone company.
Zywar, a 12-year employee of the town, has an agreement to pay for his personal use of the phone, Venditti said. The supervisor added that the town now plans to assign a town phone to Zywar, who is seeking re-election this fall.
