Question
It was in the minutes near the end. The 2/12 ones as I stated in the first words of my post. They could have corrected it. I haven't been back to it.

Question
I just read the 2/12 exec. session minutes. Who is Chief Morgan? Should it be Dodge? Is it a legal document with the mistake? Just wondering.. Hope the weather on the Montague site is right. Only 1-3 inches of global warming. :-0 Stash

from my understanding the long drawn out process was the independent review panel

Rob: I am very aware of which you commented on since I served as selectman in Montague for twenty years and retired from being in a human resources environment for over 30 years and I fully realize the confidential part of the particulars BUT that all being said , the taxpayers don't APPEAR to being well served by the LONG drawn out process , say nothing about the morale with in the department. Situations like this are always painful BUT the PEOPLE of Montague don't deserve this !

contracts the town makes with positions like police chief can be involved. It is not employment at will like most people. The cost of firing him might have ended up costing more than the severance pay if he contested the firing. The newer thinking is that drug addiction is more of a disease that needs to be treated instead of punished. We elected our select board to represent us and to make hopefully the best informed decisions for us. I hope the board takes the time to explain why they made the decision they did.

as punishment they're letting him resign and giving him an extra year's salary. makes sense to me!

Hey, ED, I answered your question about the trash schedule. Sorry you got all huffy this time around when I suggested you could find out the answer yourself. Hope you and the old dude survived the storm okay.

Asking a question sure as heck isn't sticking your hand in my wallet. I suppose it is a case of WHO asks a question. ED

Gee, sorry newbie -- I thought that _was_ helpful. I had you pegged as a "people should do for themselves and not always be expecting a handout from somebody else" type guy, so I figured you might appreciate knowing that there's a much easier way to get an answer to your question than posting on this corkboard. My apologies if I figured wrong. I have no idea whether town hall is open today.

Was the Montague Town shut down again today? My old Dude called me to have me run him over to pay his tax bill. I said we would wait til Wed. because they probably have another 2 day work week. Must be nice. Never knew that Christmas was a 2 day holiday. Oh well. ED

Holiday Garbage Pick-up
Republic has given the town a less than satisfactory explanation for the lack of pickup last week on several streets. We have been told that they will do pickup for all the homes they missed tomorrow (tuesday 1/2) - although most people probably won't know this. The Selectboard is discussing this underperformace with Republic (I believe next monday).
Roads we know they missed and are supposedly doing tomorrow are:
Stevens St.
Charon St
Davis St.
Dunton St.
Bulkey St
Willmark
Linda Ln
George St
Keith St
Maple St
Grove St
Hillside Ave
Wrightson Ave
Madison Ave.
