Mayor cen­sured, City Hall stays put

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Staff Stanstead

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.
