Now the Inspector General will be providing training on procurement in Templeton- Chapter 30 B
The irony of this situation is that the training by the Inspector General will take place on March 8, 2017. March 8, 2017 is the same day as the Municipal Finance Oversight Board (MFOB) meeting in Boston. The MFOB granted more time to the Town of Templeton so Templeton can demonstrate that Templeton has its books in good order. So the Town of Templeton can take on $47 million in new debt for the elementary school. Had to go to the MFOB because Templeton HAS NO BOND RATING!
So who decided it would be a great idea for Templeton to take on the debt of a new school without a BOND RATING? This current board of selectmen!
[He noted that a prior Board of Selectmen chairman had signed off on a contract that had been altered by whiting out names. He said in some cases “it appeared it was a conscious effort” and in others it was merely to finish projects to meet deadlines.]
