Will Lisbon Taxpayers Be Forced To pay both sides of This Law Suit?
Kasie Kolbe -- Dean Willey--- Marcey Crosskill--- Nicole Sautter
formed a "Petitioners Committee" and started to collect petition signatures to hold a "Special Town Meeting" in an attempt to override the Town Council's reduction in the proposed school budget . The Committee collected and submitted over 700 signatures to the Town Clerk.
*** Because it was not filed within the 15 days period following the legal adoption of the budget.
***And because a Special Town Meeting to reconsider a school budget approved by the Council and voters would not be consistent with the Statutory and Charter requirements for adoption of school budgets.
It has been rumored that the Committee's next step is to sue the Town using School Department money to pay for the legal representation. I hope this isn't true. If School Department money is used to sue the Town we will have a situation in which the Residents of Lisbon will be paying money to sue themselves.
I feel the above named committee has every right in the world to sue the town if they are paying the bill. But Lisbon Residents shouldn't be required to pay for both sides of the lawsuit.
