March Trustees Work Session

A multitude of subjects covered at this evening's Work Ses­sion... a preview of the proposed $250,000 Glovers Lane "pocket park," plans for a temporary stage in the middle of Main Street in front of the Performing Arts Center on the evening of the Independence Day fireworks extrav­a­ganza, and a hint that the 2013-2014 Village budget cur­rently features a 1.8% rate reduction... but the most significant news was a "new hire."

The Trustees, with Mayor Conrad Teller casting the solitary "No" vote, retained the extra-special services of Village Labor Counsel Richard Zuckerman for the specific purpose of "assisting Special Counsel Scott Augustine."

Got that?

The attorney hired last October (@ $175/hour) to...

"...review and investigate the financial transactions and records of the Village to assure that the Village Clerk/Treas­urer has and is currently complying with all the policies of the Village, the New York State Comptroller's Office and law of New York State...."

...now, in the collective dubious wisdom of the Trustees, needs the services of attorney Zuckerman (@ $275/hour) to bail Augustine (and the three stooges who've supported him from the start) out of the mess that they've created with their municipal snipe hunt.

(You know, the one that Hank Tucker continues to babble is part of their "fiduciary responsibility.")

Is there anyone out there in the Village, unattached to the legacy-sucking Circe, who can use a paid part-time position as a Village Trustee to improve the stench and IQ of our current clueless Village Board of Trustees? If so, it's just about time to put your hat in the ring.

Call the Village Office and find out what you need to do.

Announce it on the blog, and you are sure to get the volunteer staff you need to run your campaign!

I'm confident that you are not directing that at me!
