Here’s The Scoop…#7…LBTS Commission Meeting…Chewing Out The Chamber….

CHEWING OUT THE CHAMBER…

Wow…whiplash….wet noodles…wipe out….is the Chamber’s Christmas- By- The- Sea event….a wash?….

President Paul Novak…was practically slimed last night between the Manager…the Assistant Manager… several on the dais…and a few on the CIC side of the room….utterly ridiculous…

He came to get squared away on some pre- Christmas event snags…the liquor license approval…for the restaurants…and an infusion of cash to make up for the bogus offer of the VFD $5000 dollar donation…from Booster funds…( maybe they did not make it back from the Operations fund…as stated in the VFD minutes?) made singularly by the Vice Mayor….in his grandstanding offer made without the VFD’s knowledge…(per Pointu’s resignation letter) …when he backed down on that offer …..using a lame excuse…and blaming others…instead of fessing up…to his actions… leaving the Chamber event underfunded…

Add to that another smarmy letter( 2nd of the night …after the Terra Mar letter…previous post)… from the Assistant Town Manager …informing them this year the Town would not be putting up or taking down the tree…it too would come from the Chamber funds…

Commissioner Silverstone did try…on both the liquor snag…although in the end…the Commission never voted on it…and offering the VFD services for tree duty….with VFD Chief Perkins….nodding in agreement….

Too much…says President Novak……according to his members…they need to reassess to see if it is worth it…if they still have the energy to do it…or not…

The Town Manager owes this fine upstanding …taxpaying …business owning…resident a letter of apology for her inappropriate behavior from the dais…unbecoming and uncalled for from a Town Manager…really hard to watch…

It is hoped the Chamber will band together ..and see what can be done……for the sake of continuing a fine tradition… in this town for yet another season of good will….

more to come…
