Bill Truitt and Don Goddard share something in common other than being co-workers. They were both caught in 1998 of falsifying public documents and were brought up on charges. An article in the Daily Freeman dated July 29, 1998 reported the discplinary actions brought against several of the police officers for falsifying time and attendence records. According to sources, the charges against Truitt and Goddard were dropped in exchange for their testimony against police chief Michael Clinch.
We should also note that Joanne Lown, who was involved in an ongoing extramartial affair with Lt. McKenna (as indicated by court documents published on this site) was the bookkeeper at this time and processed time and attendence records.  No wonder why Bill Truitt was more than happy to see her return to town hall at the January 9, 2012 town board meeting.
