Federal Charges Filed Against Day Government

Federal Charges Filed Against Day
Federal charges have been filed against former Morgan County council administrator Garth Day. Charges were dropped at the state level several months ago as the investigation was turned over to federal officials. At the time that the case was turned over to federal jurisdiction, County Attorney Jann Farris said, My fear is that Garth will be released immediately from the prison [state prison] due to the non-violent nature of his crimes and his lack of a criminal record and prison overcrowding. I do not feel like that would be appropriate considering the damage he has done. In the federal system he will more likely get and serve a significant prison sentence. In my judgment that will be in the best interest of justice.� Federal officials have conducted interviews with county personnel, and with Day himself as a part of their investigation.

Garth Day is the county ... [cached]

Garth Day is the county council administrator for Morgan.

The current county government is set up to have a part time council and Day provides the full time assistance to help make a part time council effective. Day was hired as the council administrator, at least in part, because of his experience with economic development. He has significant experience in economic development and has worked with many governments in Utah on successful development projects. When Day was hired the council saw value in him continuing to work on economic development projects for other organizations as long as it did not interfere with his work at the county. Days employment contract reads, ?The Council Administrator agrees to remain in the exclusive employ of the County, while employed by the County. The term ?employed?Û�, however, shall not be construed to include teaching, writing, speaking, consulting, or other business involvement, as long as, such endeavors comply with Section 8 of this Employment Agreement [section eight requires that Day schedule his time appropriate to meet the needs of his job assignment and recognizes that he will work a flexible schedule to accommodate council meetings, lobbying, etc] as to the Council Administrators duties, and those activities do not present a direct conflict of interest with the County. This is true even if outside compensation is provided. The council acknowledges that Council Administrator is currently a consultant for Pleasant View and Sunset cities, and the Town of Vineyard; and that those consulting positions will continue after County employs Council Administrator.?Û� Day, because of his expertise in economic development, has continued to engage in some consulting agreements. He has made the council aware of all of these engagements. Day is currently consulting for the City of South Salt an exciting project. Mayor Wood, the mayor of the City of South Salt Lake, gave high praise to Day in his work for them. She indicated that Day is attending their council meetings on Wednesday night, and is spending time in the office on Friday, when Morgan County offices are closed. She said, ?He [Day] is doing great things for South Salt Lake. He is a wonderful asset to the city.?Û� She particularly expressed praise for Days expertise in RDAs. She said Day is not an employee, but that the city had contracted with Day in January, based on the recommendation from other localities with whom Garth has interacted in the past. Morgan Council Chairman Creager said that the council was fully aware of this consulting engagement between Day and the City of South Salt Lake. He expressed the value that he sees in Day as an employee of the county. He sees these engagements as further evidence of Days expertise and value to Morgan. He believes that Day is doing an excellent job for the county and that Days expertise in economic development is invaluable to the countys future. Chairman Creager has also commented on the influence Day has with legislators at the state level. Creager reports that Days relationships at the state capital have been very important to Morgan County. While there continues to be some controversy over the council administrator position, it seems clear that the council continues to be supportive of Day. Each of the council members who have been interviewed have expressed that they do not know how the council could perform their duties without support from the council administrator position and from Day personally.

In documents by The Morgan County ... [cached]

In documents by The Morgan County News obtained through a Government Records Access Management Act (GRAMA) request from the investigation into the actions of Garth Day, the former Morgan County Council Administrator, additional details of the actions of Day were revealed. They also indicate that Day confessed to wrong doings and is cooperating with the investigation. The investigation documents confirm previously reported details surrounding the actions of Day and add additional information. The investigation tells of the events indicating that Day contacted County Council Chairman Sid Creager on August 27, 2010 to report that he had done some bad things.� This call from Day was after Creager requested that Day set up a meeting with Chase Bank to discuss concerns over an account that had been opened for Morgan County. Day did not set up the meeting as requested, and Creager repeatedly called Day that evening and the next morning. Day did not set up the meeting as requested, and Creager repeatedly called Day that evening and the next morning.

Day then provided the name of Alex Baker and gave her a contact number.
The investigation determined that Day purchased a cell phone and posed as Alex Baker in the conversation with Thomson.
Shortly after this interaction Thomson received two memos from Day.
It would later be discovered that Day had manufactured the documentation provided to Wood.
The report also indicated that Day forged resolutions including signatures from Chairman Creager and Morgan County Clerk Stacy Lafitte.
It details that Day forged Creager's signature on documents used to open bank accounts and obtain a fraudulent line of credit in the county's name. The report provides a summary of the interview with Day. During the interview the subject stated the following in substance: Garth Day stated he wished to cooperate with this investigation and give a full confession regarding all financial crimes he committed during the time he was appointed as the Morgan County Counsel [Council] Administrator. He admitted to opening several fraudulent accounts with financial institutions in order to facilitate the theft of money from the Morgan County Treasury. He confirmed that he had forged Morgan County Chairman, Sid Creager's signature on a loan document and fictitiously created financial documents in order to conceal his crimes. Day admitted he had used the alias (Alex Baker) and used a cell phone to dupe Ms . Thomson into believing the Utah Department of Transportation had received a check from the Morgan County Treasury. Day estimated he had stole about $415,000.00� The majority of the funds misappropriated by Day will not be the responsibility of the county.
The case against Day was referred to the FBI for federal prosecution on January 12. Charges are expected to shortly be filed at the federal level.
