Therefore it comes as a matter of some concern to find that the public hearing on the setting of rates for the next year is scheduled for 6 p.m. this coming Thursday night.
You see, the problem is that the debates for Town Council and School Committee candidates are scheduled for the same night from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
The public announcement of the debates was on June 9. The posting of the public hearing was on June 8.
Couldn’t there have been an effort to see that two events of so much interest to the public did not conflict?
