    While most American workers have spent the past four years getting by with stagnating wages, or making even less than in years before, a segment of government employees is doing just fine.

    There was a meeting June 18 at Sun City’s Drendal Hall to review the tax discrepancy between Rutland and Grafton townships. The hall was filled to capacity, approximately 300 attendees.
