At 7:04 PM a Public Hearing was conducted regarding the proposed 2013 Budget.
Mayor McDonald, “This was presented at the last workshop, since that time we were at one Community Group already and have another one scheduled. Hopefully the budget will be passed at the November Common Council. There are no increases in the water/sewer rate and no layoffs are planned”.
George Hebert, 40 Masten Ave., “My main concern is with Department of Public Works. Two years ago we were hammered hard with snow. The department had a hard time keeping up. If we get the same kind of winter are we prepared to handle it?”
Mayor McDonald, “We have to work with what we have. If there is an emergency we will hire a private contractor or seasonal employees if needed. No matter how much we are prepared; there is always the possibility of equipment failure. We have replaced a lot of equipment. Our employees always give 110% effort, for which I am extremely proud. We have a handful of people to call on if needed.”
George Hebert, “Do we have a reliable contractor lined up?”
Mayor McDonald, “We don’t have contracts executed, but we do have contractors available.”
With no more public comment, at 7:11 PM, Council Member Turcotte made a MOTION to close the public hearing. Seconded by Council Member Ceccucci. All members voted “AYE”.
