July 8, 2010 4:02 p.m. | A theft in Milwaukee is causing a headache for
employees of the Village of Big Bend.
A laptop containing payroll information for the village's employees was stolen
from the car of the village's payroll provider in Milwaukee last week, village
clerk Bobbi Woppert said.
Police have not recovered the laptop.
The provider reported the theft and sent letters to employees to inform them
their personal information was not secure. The provider recommended that
employees contact a credit bureau that would place a 90-day alert on their
information to prevent identity theft.
Members of the village finance committee will meet next Thursday to discuss the
theft. Woppert said she did not know whether they would consider moving to
another payroll provider. Woppert did not know the name of the payroll company.
