Town Council Sends Message After Failed Meeting

by | Jul 24, 2017

July 11, 2017 – The Town Council adjourned its meeting Monday night (7/10). They sent out this statement on the town’s email list and posted it to the town website shortly after the meeting.

Dear Resident,

Tonight’s scheduled Council meeting was adjourned early due to tremendous discord and disruption from members of the Firefighters Union and NEA. Tonight’s meeting agenda included a discussion of salary and overtime reports, and the Council intended to begin an open dialogue with the Fire Chief to understand these overages and how to prevent inflated salaries that burden taxpayers. In an effort to further promote transparency in town government, we have provided this information to taxpayers in this email.
