The fate of the Executive Assistant of the City of Ithaca Planning and Development department is unknown, following charges she stole money from a Trumansburg baseball organization.

Debbie Grunder, a 48-year-old Lansing resident, pleaded not guilty Monday to stealing $6,350 as treasurer of the Trumansburg Travel Baseball, a nonprofit summer league for players between 9 and 15. League Commissioner Jeff Ives said the organization’s budget is less than $5,000, according to the Ithaca Journal.

Trumansburg police have charged Grunder with grand larceny and falsifying business records while treasurer of the organization. According to Trumansburg Police Chief Thomas Ferretti, Grunder paid her utility bills, bought gasoline and rented a party tent with the league’s money.

Ferretti said Grunder had emptied the league’s bank account at Tompkins Trust Co., closed the account and opened another at CFCU Community Credit Union known only to her.

It is unknown whether Grunder remains employed by the City of Ithaca. Her name and email remain on the Planning and Development web page. Grunder and City of Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick have yet to comment on the city employee’s status.

A government employee stealing from a charity? It's only illegal if she wasn't doing it on the clock, especially in Ithaca, the City of Evil.

When your government job title consists of ELEVEN WORDS, you are not needed. That being said, fire her sorry butt.

Good to see you BLL. I haven’t seen your posts for a while. I was up with my boys in November, about 25 miles south of Ithaca. My 3 boys each harvested a deer. I hope the lefties up in Cornell and Ithaca had a good ole PETA cry over it.

Some of the local good ole boys tell me that greenies at the university have been releasing mountain lions down by us. They claim reports of cougars are real and a planned thing by the tree huggers up by you. Any news on that front?

Any hypotheses as to why Ithaca would be so evil? Or if it even is the evilest place in the USA?

25 miles south of Ithaca puts you clearly in my territory.

To be fair, that sounds like a glorified secretary. And if they really needed the bureaucrat she was a secretary to, it kind of made sense.

But man. I’ve just been into, and back out of, the belly of the beast. Industrious is NOT something they encourage you to be, if you work for the government.

My friend owns 22 acres off of 34 and we have friendly neighbors that allow us to use a couple hundred more acres adjacent to his.

Have you heard of cougars (not the mature woman kind) in the area?

Why Ithaca is the City of Evil.

Though, to be honest, with Obama and Holder in office, the whole country seems to be catching up, sadly.

Sadly, for a long time, there didn't seem to be a point. Obama and Holder had brought Ithacism to a national scale. Whereas Ithaca was once the nation's far-left outlier, these days it often doesn't seem that different than any place else under the regime.

Fate? The only question is how far up the ladder she’ll be promoted.

Yes, cougars and mountain lions. Bears are big here, too. Foxes...everything and I live IN the village and see them.

Lovely. Just what we need. Mountain lions roaming the area.

That said, I saw an eagle flying right off I-81 just south of the Preble rest stop the other day.

There are some nests near Cortland.

I know the town of Barton...and my Grand dad had once been a minister at the CMA church in Waverly. I lived in Candor before moving to Va.!

I noticed the welfare recipients upstate all have “ I heart Obamacare “ bumper stickers and this is nowhere near Ithaca. Not a good sign.
