Butler County: No decision on suspended worker until next week

Butler County officials made no decision Thursday in a hearing for an employee suspended over the failure to properly submit a $400,000 federal grant application.

Lori Altman, the county personnel director, said officials would make decision next week regarding Linda Cranmer, 52. District Attorney Richard Goldinger said Cranmer led him to believe that paperwork for the grant had been properly submitted, but the Department of Justice told him it was not.

Cranmer said the county is looking at additional information supplied during her hearing. Her attorney, Adam Hobaugh, said he would not comment until the county made a decision.

The county failed to get the grant. It has agreed to pay for an assistant district attorney position, which the grant helped pay for. Commissioners said they're still deciding if they can help the Victim Outreach Information Center, which lost about $170,000 in grant money over two years.
