The latest conspiracy theory is that the BoS are deliberately violating the Open Meeting Law to demonstrate to the state how OML complaints tie up "valuable" resources of time and energy of the selectmen?
From Templeton Watch
I would urge as many people as possible to attend...if it is held.
THIS LETTER was sent to the BoS on May 23, 2017. It was forwarded to the Advisory Committee around June 7, 2017. Everyone should READ it!
This document indicates a shortfall of $211,000 that will need to be remedied. If there is NO Free Cash, which is certified by the DOR, then cuts will need to be made to FY 18 budget. FY 18 budget has a $100,000 deficit to begin the New Year (Fiscal - July 1, 2018).
There may be difficulties setting the FY 18 tax rate. The lack of a tax rate further exacerbates Templeton's financial woes.
None of the above takes into account the UNEXPLAINED reduction in Stabilization account:
From $142,000 To $95,000
I think the DOR might want an explanation of how that happened!
The BoS were SUPPOSED to discuss a response or answer the DOR concerns at TONIGHT's
