NORWALK, Conn. – The staff at Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now (NEON) has been asked to turn in their agency cell phones “As we approach our last days here at the agency.”
The email, sent by IT Administrator and Media Manager Marcus Robinson and obtained from a recipient by NancyOnNorwalk.com, contains instructions on how to remove personal photos and other material from the phones.
NEON Board of Directors Chairman Mike Berkoff declined to comment Thursday afternoon, but acknowledged the agency would have a statement soon. Attempts to reach acting CEO the Rev. Tommie Jackson by phone and email were not immediately successful.
Less than a month ago, the city announced it was taking over the electric bill at the Ben Franklin School, a state Department of Social Services spokesman expressed grave doubts about the agency’s ability to continue and state Sen. Bob Duff said internal talks were continuing but no decision had been made.
There have been rumors and behind-the-scenes discussions for weeks about a potential NEON bankruptcy filing, but NoN was told within the past two weeks that no decisions had been made on whether or when it would happen and, if it did, whether it would be a reorganization or Chapter 7, which would mean going out of business.
