Wednesday, May 30, 2018, selectmen held a meeting and financial transfer was on agenda.
So two transfer requests were signed and forwarded to Advisory Committee for action.
One transfer was from benefits to snow & ice deficit in the amount of $25,000.00.
That transfer was approved.
Second transfer request was for $15,000.00 from benefits to highway department:
That transfer was not approved.
purchase of services - $9,000.00
supplies - $6,000.00
problem / issue: memo showing the breakdown of what the funds were needed for;
MS-4 / storm water report @ $2,000.00
arborist / diseased trees @ $2,150.00
Equipment services @ $2,850.00 (cylinder rebuild & body repair)
So, those total $7,000.00 which leads to the question: did the requester mean to ask for $7,000.00?
Did the requester make an error in the summary and really need $9,000.00/
Since the Town Administrator and accountant are both out on vacation and no one in selectmen office answered the question and it seems as if the selectmen do not read what they vote or sign or discuss, the chairman signed it and forward it to Advisory and no one came to the meeting to answer the question (s)
