I remembered listening to the board meeting from June and my wife and I talking about several things including listening about the Town Board approving an 8-yard dump box, maybe 2 to be placed at the landfill at a cost of $300 each plus per month. This didn’t make any sense to me after hearing that Mike, Kathy, Cynthia and Joan all decided to ignore the county contract that would have given our Town any size free roll-off!
In talking with some friends, I understand the small 8-yard boxes are filling so fast there’s no room for trash, yes the landfill has 2 8-yard boxes now and a friend said there were 3! It came to me, now I know why the guys at the landfill were told to go thru the bags, the small boxes are filling up so fast and they are only supposed to be dumped every other week! Again, I ask Whose idea was this?
If I am right we the taxpayers are shelling out at least $600 maybe $900 a month not accounted for in the budget! Where is that money coming from? And why are they paying a company and not using the county contract!
Irresponsible, no common sense at all. We then just finished listening to the last board meeting where my wife heard them pass a resolution to connect a person on to the water system that was going to wait until later, this is good, that person should be connected but they did not even get an estimate for the work! They approved a payment that no one knows how much it will cost! Are they crazy? How many of you would approve paying a blank check? I sure don’t.
Where is the fiscal accountability and responsibility they promised me and my wife? Gone with the wind!
