Here’s The Scoop … Scene And Heard Around Town …

WHAT GOES AROUND ….

Dear Readers…the Int. TM June 22, 2010 Report included the following…

“Audit Committee
The Audit Committee met for the first time this week and made some excellent revisions to the draft
RFP We sent the ad for the RFP to the Sun Senutinnel today and it will be placed on Demandstar, the most
frequently used on-line government RFP service on Monday. We will also post it on the Town’s website
Kaola King will also send letters or emails to all of the respondents from the last time the Town issued an
audit RFP to make them aware of our deadline July 12 for responses.”

This writer took a look at the RFP which included this “gem”…on page 6 …put in by the new Audit Committee at their first meeting ….Nice job!…

“F. Special Considerations
For the audit of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, the Town wants the auditor to examine
compliance with the Town’s purchasing rules and regulations with regard to limitations on the Town
Manager’s authority to approve contracts or services up to a maximum of $15,000. Therefore, the
auditor shall double their normal sample to review individual transactions for payments made to vendors
or contractors in the $7,500 – $14,999 range in that year’s audit in order to both determine compliance
with the Town’s purchasing rules and regulations and that payment was made in compliance with the
terms of the pertinent contract or purchase order.”

THE CLOTTEY METHOD ….

……………………

“IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK” …… Former Vice Mayor/VFD Dep. Chief McIntee …2009 …

Has the former VM/VFD Dep. Chief  “quacked” the “case” on Chief Perkin’s  with his own personal “files”…offered up to aid in the demise of the man he made his “Little Chief”  in 2008?…

………….

ESTHER COLON WANTS MCINTEE’S E-MAILS…

Dear Readers…the former Commission was included in the recent Public Records Request from the former TM…(prev. post)…. Will her former “#1 protector” be technologically inept for a second time and “DUCK-it?”… pun intended!…..

……………….

SHADE-Y CONNECTION?…

Perhaps, second thoughts have come into play?…We hear there has been some concern about Comm. Clottey phoning in to join the Commission’s shade session next Monday morning … The meeting is to discuss the Town of LBTS v. Esther Colon… which requires the Commission to remain mute until the litigation is over and everything discussed stays in the room .. …A phone call into the meeting from who knows where … has raised a few eyebrows…over who else  may be on the other end of the line…

more to come….
