  • Items for February 2023 Regular Agenda....

    Two items for the upcoming February 2023 Regular Meeting agenda...

    1) Receive an update from the Town Secretary on observations and recommendations to date and take action(s) as necessary

    We have identified the importance of the role of Town Secretary and as such, I believe it would be helpful not just in February, but at every regular meeting for the Town Secretary to give us an update on how things are going and then have the ability to take action to assist that person in whatever way they feel is necessary. I believe this would better connect this key position to the entire Council. At least in the short term, I don't think this should be in the form of a "Report" since we need the ability to ask questions and take action.

    2) Discuss and take action as necessary to establish a Finance Oversight Team consisting of 2 Council members

    The entire Council is responsible for, and measured against the financial health of our town. I believe it would help everyone, including the Mayor, to have other members of the Council sharing the burden of monitoring and reporting on the Town's finances. This team would work closely with the Town Secretary and the Mayor to understand, monitor and report back to the Council and citizens on the state of the Town's finances both current and future as necessary.
