Are you aware?
To the Editor:
Peru: Are you aware about what's been happening with your money of late?
Tax dollars have just paid over $6,600 for current secretary's legal fees. That over $10,000 in wasted money with the former board's stupidity -- legal fees that should've never been incurred. If she had just stepped down as a select person after the June 12, 2012 vote, none of this would have happened. We told her how we felt again in Nov. of 2012 when we voted not to overturn an article from June (which made the secretarial position an elected one).
Remember, the wind committee spent two years planning a wind ordinance and all they ever asked for was to have money set aside for legal fees -- wind legal fees. I was under the impression, as a lot of people were, that the $10,000 we set aside last June was for that. Well, wording got changed by the former board (imagine that) and went through to have the money for legal fees "in general."
I call that "shady" on their part (and we still have one member left from that board who causes more problems).
When voting, be aware of Article 7 -- $124,000 town expenses one block. No way to say "no" to any one part of it, including another $10,000 for legal fees! Plus, with these monies in one article, the board can exchange amounts back and around within this block however they see fit. Doesn't this raise questions with you?
