Mayor censured, City Hall stays put
izens and said that the town had been fudging the issue for months, some councillors seeming to agree. Mayor Dutil said that since a Hydro-québec crew was already in town trimming trees, he would ask them to look into the matter and if they cannot do the job, the town would do it properly.
Then came the censure by another person present who asked the mayor if he had the support of council for his remarks on cutting the water supply to our Southern neighbours. As all councillors tried to disappear under the table, the mayor got into a convoluted answer that the water would only be cut in Beebe, Vermont. The lady who was asking the questions went on to ask about the legality of the proposed scheme; no suitable answers were forwarded by the mayor.
A couple asked the town to takes its responsibilities seriously in regard to the flooding that one of their properties suffered last summer, the town insurers refusing their $35,000 claim. As was the case before, we can remember when former councillor Matthew Farfan faced a similar situation. It seems that the town is lacking proper documentation for a lot of its infrastructure.
