When asked about Brugh’s argument itself, Molitor dismissed it as without validity.
“As I understand it, [the ordinance and resolution] say they were signed on the same day they were passed,” Molitor said. “There isn’t any indication as to how Mr. Brugh would know when else it would have been signed.
“I don’t know if the signed copy didn’t get into the clerk-treasurer’s office when Brugh wanted it or what,” Molitor continued. “In the long run, it doesn’t matter. The only record that exists shows it was signed the night it was passed.”
