How about these reports get printed as submitted so all of the information a board, commission, committee or department wishes to convey to the taxpayers actually gets to those taxpayers . . . who pay for this report!
Note: This report is for fiscal 2017, which ended June 30, 2017.
With regard to Town employees salaries in the Annual Town Report, try emailing Selectmen Haley Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask her why town employee salaries are not in the ATR?
Town employee salaries were in ATR 2012, skipped 2013, appeared in 2014 and have been absent since. I believe you will find it was a selectmen who pushed for these to not be published because it is none of your business. That is what was rumored at Town Hall, but again, I would begin with selectmen Brooks and if she is ever at a BOS meeting, that would be the place to ask, in public and on the record. (my opinion)
