Pool bubble resolution

Here's the motion for the discussion on Alternatives to the pool bubble:For the record... I had absolutely nothing to do with this motion. And it doesn't really remind me of my motions from either February 26 or March 11.

If it's not yours then stay away from it let the maker chair it. I wouldn't touch it.

Regarding the Norton Window Replacement - I thought at a previous meeting the council voted to accept a bid with the understanding that the company may charge an extra 16K (because costs were rising and we missed the 45 day time period of approval). They still were the lowest bidder even with the possible add'l 16K charge. Sounds like it was the building commission that screwed up missing that 45 day deadline. The council voted at that last meeting so that they didn't have to go out to bid again. Now at tonight's meeting it sounds like it did in fact go out to bid again. Doesn't make sense. Can you explain.

10:05 that's kinda what I was trying to get at with my questions. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere.

And frankly, I tend to doubt I'll get any answers when we discuss it again in two weeks.

these aren't the droids you're looking for. move along.

I think a fundamental problem with this Council is that whenever there's a problem... no one wants to ask the two questions I asked tonight about the financial software...

1) who is responsible?

2) what are the consequences?

Which by the way... I never got an answer to #2. However, when the Town Atty took responsibility... I concluded that a meeting wouldn't be conducive to answering #2.

#2 probably could only be answered if the answer to #1 was town staff... and that wasn't the case.

Didnt we pay the consultant to do this work?...tell us out best options.....now we are going to depend on town workers opinions....sounds like the begining of another blank-up

Why would the town attorney take responsibility? He is not the person who should be making decisions about what finance software we should be using.
If he is making those decisions then maybe we should take the money away from his services.
More cover-up!
I am livid that these questions are not being answered.

Why would anyone choose a vendor that had no clients in CT? That would have been a red flag to me. Three lawyers at last nights meeting? No lawyers when the decision was made on the northend project why? What a joke.

Matt A made a statement that the AD had to be part of the pool group. Why? The BOE just rents the time like they did at CA.

How much does that cost?
