Lake Geneva comptroller out

Deb Gilbert, the city of Lake Geneva comptroller, lost her job Monday after the city council vote 7-1 not to renew her contract.

Alderman Gary Dunham, chairman of the finance committee and the lone dissenting vote, said Gilbert was taking the heat for the recent case involving misuse of library credit cards.

Former library employee Mercedes Mogensen is accused of stealing $18,500 from the library and charging $70,000 in personal purchases on the library's credit card.

Gilbert was disappointed by the decision. She said she was responsible for too much, including payroll and data entry, duties that are better suited to someone other than the comptroller.

"How do I get the comptroller job done when most of my time is spent on daily work?" she said. "It's really ridiculous."
