Southbridge Town Council Agenda - July 11, 2016

Town Council Meeting

MacKinnon Council Chambers

July 11, 2016

Immediately Following Swearing-In of Newly Elected Councilors



  1. Is there a reason that Councilors Forum is at the end of the meeting?

    Why do Councilors and Town Managers sometimes make comnents in an attempt to neutralize citizen's forum comments, but they get the lastt word again, and their sometimes absurd commentary can't be challenged by the voters.

    This week in particular, Councilor Manna, who was just re-elected with 5% of the registered voters support,

    ssuggested that the sewerlines going to the airport would have saved sewer rate oayers,from increased sewer fees if the Tiwn borrowed mIllions to build Casella a leachate plant.
    If the water and sewer hearing was televised in recent weeks, people would be eye witnesses to the sillyness of her theory.

    Hiw can the Councilors Forum be placed rivht before citizen's forum so citizens can comment on the occasionally absurd political opinions spewed out with confidence from councilors detdrmibed to provide misinformation?

  2. Be careful, Last Word. Just as agenda items that are of interest of concerned citizens are often put off until the end of the meeting, instead of moving Councilors Forum to the beginning, they might put citizens forum at the very end.
