Let's revisit the sensational headlines of the January 26, 2011 editon of the HV News. 'I Don't Lie Like All You People' was splashed across the front. Highway Supervisor Walt Doyle 'Super Tees Off on Martino' was in bold print.
Jim Langon wrote the following in his paper:

Near the conclusion of a routine, if not boring, town board meeting, Highway Superintendent Walt Doyle lashed out at Supervisor Tom Martino for failing to respond to his frequent requests to have his invoices paid. A frustrated Doyle took to the fl oor and savaged Martino for putting the town’s safety and reputation in danger by not paying his department’s vendors. He began by asking Martino if he had read his e-mail. Martino reluctantly acknowledged having received it (the e-mail is printed in full for our readers). Doyle then said to the board, “Not one of you responded.” When a chastened Martino said he had been too busy to respond, Doyle said, “You were probably holding an illegal meeting behind closed doors, trying to fi gure out how to cut my salary.” He was referring to Martino’s attempt in late 2010 to lower Doyle’s salary during budget deliberations. The town attorney was unaware it is illegal to cut the salary of  an elected official. Doyle suggested Martino fi nd an attorney familiar with municipal law. Doyle went on to say Martino didn’t “know his own policies” regarding the payment of vendors. “Nothing gets done around here,” he said. When Martino, assisted by Councilman Michael Taylor, attempted to spin the failure to pay the bills in a timely fashion, a frustrated Doyle said, “I tell the truth. I don’t lie like all you people.” Before leaving, Doyle challenged the board, “If you’ve got something to say, say it now before I leave.” The gutless Taylor held his tongue until Doyle exited the building but by then the damage was done. It was yet another example of the depths to which this board has sunk in the realm of public discourse and integrity. Doyle joined a growing chorus of people unhappy with Martino and the way things are being run at Town Hall. Last week, we reported the local Republican Town Committee is unlikely to re-nominate Martino or Taylor out of concern for their horrific performance thus far. In an e-mail addressed to Martino and members of the town board, Doyle referenced Martino’s “failure of policy.” The issue concerns the competency and policies implemented by Martino and the recently hired town comptroller


However, what Jim Langan failed to report and this is also backed up not only on the 2006 audit report but also reportedly on the 2009 report is that Mr. Walt Doyle was making UNAUTHORIZED purchases, then submitting the invoices for payment AFTER the order was placed and received. See, the town works off of approved blanket orders which are valid for thirty (30) days. Mr. Doyle was using those blanket purchase orders more then their thirty (30) day approval period. He was making purchased on purchase orders that spanned over ONE YEAR's time. This wasn't noticed previously most likely due to the bookkeeper's inept records. However, once her position was eliminated and the records were closely reviewed, it was discovered that Mr. Doyle did not correct the procedures that the auditor's indicated should be done. 
So you have bills and invoices from vendors for goods and services that were NEVER AUTHORIZED. And Mr. Doyle expected the town to pay for these unauthorized purchases without the town first making sure the monies were available for the payments.
So, Mr. Doyle was violating the Town's procurement policy.  For the many years he's been the highway supt. and he finally got caught, hence his meltdown and attempts to place the blame on someone else. 

I think Mr. Langan duped alot of people with his spin on what actually happened. He purposely left out ALOT of pertainent information.
I just have to ask...who's the liar now Walt?
