Dear Board of Finance member:
An Old Saybrook referendum is good until the polls close.
E. g: General Government Budget for Fiscal 2012-2013
approved at referendum 15May2012.
The current WPCA Personnel expense is over budget by 300%.
In which WPCA budget line did the money for the backhoe,
ground-penetrating radar, and truck appear?
There's nothing in the WPCA budget reflecting the Town's
appropriation of $42 million for WWMD "design and
construction," 11Aug09 Referendum Question 2, nor the
ongoing expense of replacing failed systems.
Old Saybrook, an Enron with offbudget entities?
Very truly yours,
Joel R. Anderson
