Time For Council To Say 'No'

The prior Post by New Milford Native is right on the money. Pun intended. But let's also look at our Town Council. When will its Members realize that the taxpayers have had enough? Will it wait for the Budget referenda?

Let's take a quick look at what's on the table. Sewer expansion, $35,000,000. Library expansion, $8,000,000. Ambulance barn, $3,500,000. Emergency communication system, $1,5000,000. East Street building renovation, a few million. A group wants a new aquatic center, indoor track, tennis courts and soccer fields.

Do Council Members think that there's a bottomless pot o' gold for their taking?

Are Council Members talking to their constituents?

Do Council Members ever talk to the Town's Chief Financial Officer about the Town's finances? Unfortunately, it seems that they do not.

We have a wild Budget season upon us.
