Mayor Bill Biondi was overheard on the March 14th Meet the Candidates night saying:" Let me reclassify that, in the beginning Paul himself agreed not to take a salary. All we said ( the other trustees) was the first year we weren't going to take salaries."
Good Grief! They really are trying to bankrupt this place!

Yep...even if they get a dollar we will have to pay them pensions. I seem to recall them all pledging that they would not take a salary. I don't remember any of them saying "only the first year". Now that Paul is not there to remind them I guess it is up to us...the voters. I'm going with Alan and Gail. The rest are worse than useless.
so now what

That's mature. So what has the village done for us???....given out summons & fines for disheveled properties & violations, oh wait, the MBPOA already used to do that....decorate Neighborhood Rd for the holidays, oh wait, MBPOA already used to do that.....clean - up after Hurricane Irene, reponse was slow & the quality was less than desirable....plow after the one snowfall we got, Brookhaven town would come down my street by 6 - 7 in the morning, I saw my first plow about 1 in the afternoon....provide garbage pick - up, it often comes @ different times.....oh wait....WAIT, that's it, they've raised my taxes & have given me sub - standard services & the bill will be even higher this time around.
I'm a highly educated person who is fed up w being told what is good for me & having "rules" & "laws" made behind closed doors on the downlow for the sole purpose of my "government" lining their pockets & advancing their own interests.
P.S. Good luck developing the FEDERALLY protected, beautifully serene waterfront that is populated by turtles & other wildlife that live & re - produce there.......

I think I well give Alan and Gail a shot. If they can't change any thing I will vote to dissolve the village.I would like to hear that tape,I know I and a few people bring small tape recorders to the meetings so they can listen to it later. I though I could trust Mayor Bill but now after everything that has happen I don't think I can trust any of this board.Alan ask a lot of questions and wants answers and Gail has the knowledge to help the village get grants to help us clean things up.I think the vision has taken to looking out for themselves and not the people of Mastic Beach.

Bob Morrow said that Gary told him to say "that will not happen". Ken said ditto. Mayor Bill went home to call Fred. Fred told Bill to have Victor harass everyone in the village until we find that tape so they can hide it have to ask Jill to f.o.i.l. it. The tape was never seen again.

There is already a pension plan being recommended for village employees to join. Ask village accountant if you don't believe it.

I want to hear the tape too! Municipalities are wise to offer pensions to full time employees. But, they are not likely to offer any defined benefit plans. Instead, the employees are given a cash plan pension where it is a 401K with a small match of about 3%.

And, I would be surprised if there was any talk of salary, I think this is just another red herring before the election to stir up some BS.

Thanks Brady, not a RED HERRING as you are so found of saying. They have been talking about salaries in private for half a year now, and Bill B. position was always been... "Paul said he would not take a salary, I never said I wouldn't!". So yeah, I would be very surprised if we go this fiscal village year without Salaries in the budget.

I actually am not opposed to the Mayor and Trustee's receiving salaries. They do spend a great deal of time serving the Village. I understand that we don't want more items added to the budget and tax rolls but would you be willing to work for nothing? I doubt very many of us would be willing to spend the time without getting some sort of compensation.
I am not saying this because I support what the trustee's have done in the past,I do not as a matter of fact, I just think they deserve a small salary.

Just because you are a clueless, grumpy old coot who isn't informed, doesn't make it less true. There are A LOT of issues that were called "untrue" and "false" that have been brought to light with this village as far as the vision team is concerned. And you can bet your a$$ that one of them will be the "we will work for free with our THOUSANDS of volunteers" BS! By the end of this year, they will be collecting a salary.
