Here’s The Scoop

Funds…and Finances… 5/13/08 commission meeting

The President of the Palm Club….and the Mayor were late to join the bandwagon….

but join it they did….

Following the success of the Dodd/ Clottey campaign…

for paying down the debt….incurred from sewers and such…improvements… for the north end of town….

OUCH!….

in her presentation…after handing over he gavel to the Vice Mayor….

Mayor Minnet …was on a roll…making all who were on the same wavelength…surprisingly haoppy…

only…to hit the proverbial “bump” in the road…with insinuating fiscal irresponsibility on behalf of the current commission majority…..

( BCbythesea…opinion……she was alluding to cell phones/ health insurance…implementation…that she voted against….).

and imploring for “honest accountability” from the Town Administration…

This was met with a shot back from Comm. Dodd…. with Comm. Clottey reminding the Mayor of the campaign pledges….both made….

Unfortunately…this mis-step was not the only one….

The Town Manager responded back about pre- payment penalties…involved with a debt reduction using this fund…

Madam Manager…the Finance Director at the time…did not go into detail…. as to why the town would accept a loan with such a penalty attached….

A difference of opinion also ensued between Comm. Clottey and Vice Mayor McIntee over the role of who was in charge on such matters…. the commission or Town Manager….

BCbythesea opinion….this needs to be addressed…as previously posted…a full open accounting needs to be made of all funds under the charge of the Town Manager…

Whatever happened to another campaign promise…

a full audit?……….
