Dixon a city on the brink before arrest

DIXON – Just 5 days before FBI agents arrested Rita Crundwell at City Hall in April for taking nearly $54 million from the city since 1990, Shawn Ortgiesen called his weekly meeting of department heads. Layoffs were discussed. “We were all feeling that there was no money,” said Ortgiesen, the city’s public works director. “We were trying to figure out more ways to generate revenue for the city or ways to not do layoffs. Fortunately, it never came to that.”
