The mayor of Dolton, Tiffany Henyard, is facing allegations of lavish spending while the village is in serious debt, with reports of unpaid bills and potential car repossessions due to missed loan payments.

Trustee complaints about unpaid vendors, resistance to financial transparency, and questionable expenditures on trips and a PR firm have raised concerns.

“A few months ago, we were $7 million in debt,” Trustee Brittny Norwood said.

“I’ve received no less than 10 messages from different vendors, every time I turn them over to the mayor’s office and it really falls on deaf ears,” Trustee Jason House said.

“It’s on the back of the mayor,” Trustee Kiana Belch said. “We are the legislative body, she want us to do our job, because she says we never do our job. Our job is to make sure the finances are in order and she’s not allowing us to do our job.”

Pressure is mounting for Henyard to open the books for investigation, with the Illinois attorney general and media outlets seeking transparency.

“In the opinion, the Village of Dolton is directed to respond as soon as possible to the request,” a spokeswoman for Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul stated. “The village has 35 days after the issuance of the opinion to either comply or contest the opinion in court.”

There are reports of evasive tactics by Henyard during public meetings, prompting questions about accountability and financial management in Dolton.
