Short Recap of Templeton Politics or How's that "Change" working out for you?
Short Recap of Templeton Politics
At the last meeting of the Liars Club on Monday March 27, 2017
more good news was presented.
The quest for a permanent town administrator will continue as contract negotiations broke with Mr. Becker. After expending over $14,000 on the Collins Institute to run the last search, when only $8,500 was budgeted , our intrepid leaders unanimously decided to "reopen and extend " the search for a permanent town administrator. Seems like a quest for the Holy Grail.
So what could possibly go wrong? How's that "Change" working out for you? Do Your Job!
Let's keep the interim town administrator on board, that's a great decision! Fortunately for the assistant to the town administrator, her untimely death was short lived.
How about that elementary school project? How's that going? Plan C? A USDA loan you say? You mean one of those 40 year deals? At what percentage rate? Time for a Plan X as in EXIT. This boondoggle has gone on long enough!
How's the search for a Fire chief going? "September we will have a new fire chief" according to John Caplis. He never did specify what year! Former Fire Chief Ray LaPorte did not RESIGN. The Liars Club, in their infinite wisdom, did not renew his contract! Yes, there is a difference!
Speaking of contracts, how about the time stamp in the selectmen's office ? Wonder if that is fixed yet? What's the big deal? It's only off an hour! The workaround for that is to split projects so they don't have to go out to bid! Then who needs an accurate time stamp!
How about those audits? Those audits that were supposed to be completed by now? FY 13 is $1,000,000 in the hole. More surprises in store?
How's that "Change" working out for you?
