    Sanitation Worker's Honesty Doesn't Pay

    NEENAH, Wis. - A sanitation worker who found $1,900 attached to a discarded desk at a city scrap heap says he's followed the rules and now deserves the money _ but the city won't give it up.

    "It's been very hard on me for being honest and then being told that because you're honest we're going to pat you on the back and take your money," David Voight said in a telephone interview Sunday night.

    Voight, 52, found the cash in July, in envelopes attached by magnets to the underside of the metal desk at a junk drop-off site at the city garage.

    Voight, a longtime street and sanitation worker for Neenah, turned the money over to police and waited for someone to claim it within 90 days.

    "I really wanted it to go to the rightful person," Voight said. "It didn't matter to me. It wasn't mine to begin with.

    "But it kind of rubbed me the wrong way that all of a sudden the council said since it was found on city property you can't have it."

    Now that the 90 days are up and no one claimed the money, city officials have been wrangling over what to do with it.
