TRANSPARENCY IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT


It sure would be nice in here in Lisbon we had transparency in our local government as promised by the current Administration.  Even the Home page of the town website states there is transparency in Lisbon.  I would like for the Administration to define their definition of “transparency” to the people of Lisbon.

I have been laid up for a while and wanted to review what was going on while I was not feeling so well.  I followed the instructions on the town website to review the Town Council meetings to catch-up.  However, when I did so, the Town Council meetings come up just fine but there is NO Sound.  I had to go back to June 27th to find a meeting with sound so you could hear them.  At this point, I must apologize for not being able to read lips.  So please tell me again how this is “Transparency in Local Government”?  The people cannot hear what being said at these meetings, is it still “Transparency”?

Now, I can explain the problem to you.  The problem is that once the town sends the meetings to Clerkbase; who updates the town website no one follows through to ensure it is posted right.  This is the problem with our current Administration.  They believe that once they send it to ClerkBase their responsibility is finished.

It is also amazing that every one of the School Board videos come out crystal clear and never has a problem.  It is only the Town Council meetings that have all the issues.  It has been that way for several years and no one can correct the situation. 

Can we still call this “Transparency in Local Government”?

TIMES RECORD: Fourth school budget comes up

Public hearing slated for tonight
BY DARCIE MOORE
Times Record Staff
LISBON
The Lisbon Town Council will hold a public hearing tonight on the fourth proposed school spending plan proposed by the school committee for the 2015-16 fiscal year.

The council meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the town office.

This year, the council amended and reduced three earlier proposed budgets by the Lisbon School Committee, all of which have been rejected by voters in budget validation referendums since June. A majority of voters in each referendum indicated the opposition to the budget was because education spending proposed by the council was too low.

The school committee has proposed a $15,441,270 spending plan, including adult education, and would reduce taxes by $93,889.
