 Lisbon  Councilor Chris Brunelle

Lisbon Councilor Dale J. Crafts
I do not know how many of you know it but latest Thursday, July 23, 2015 the Town Council held a workshop.  I am going out on a limb and say there could NOT have been many citizens in attendance since there was no notification. 

Of course, Chairman Pesce is going to say that it was posted on the town web site and he would be correct.  Below is a copy of the Agenda.  Please note that the day and the date do not match.  This is another example of transparency in Lisbon.

It would have been nice to have heard the discussion on the Mill Street Dam and the Water Department Tower.  Once again that ship has sailed.  We all will have to wait for minutes of the workshop to come out.  Of course, the minutes do not reflect everything that was discussed in the workshop.

It would appear that Chairman Pesce and a few of the Councilors are so wrapped up in their vendetta with the School Department that they are not paying attention to their responsibilities.  It is the Chairman’s responsibility, in coordination with the Town Manager to ensure the Agenda is posted in a timely manner and that it is accurate.  That did not happen!

Chairman Pesce and Town Manager Barnes need to stop thinking of ways to justify their position on the School Budget and start doing what is right for the community.  That is what we are paying them for!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have transparency in this town; so that the citizens are kept informed as to what is going on in our town?

P.S. There is a workshop, Tuesday July 28, 2015 7:00 P.M. at the Town Office.  On the Agenda is Trail Parking; Trail Signage; Fireworks Ordinance and Cameras – Fuel Pumps.  The original agenda was dated Thursday, July 28, 2015 but it is actually Tuesday.
