Webb's Bond To Cost Taxpayers Thousands

(Toledo, OH)   The pricetag on Lindsay Webb's appointment as Lucas County treasurer will be a steep one for taxpayers. 

Lucas County Commissioners admit the cost of former Toledo city council member Lindsay Webb's bond as treasurer this year is $10,000-- nearly nine times what they paid to insure Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz when he was treasurer.  

County officials are obligated under state law to pay for the treasurer's bond, even if its at a higher cost to taxpayers. 

Webb blames the high premium on her poor personal credit history, but claims she'll make up the costs through savings she'll seek in programs as the head of  the treasurer's office.
