Dec 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

According to some councilors, the amount currently being given -- which has stayed the same for many years -- isn't nearly enough for the requirements of the job.

No lights / no raise! Sorry! We have to pay out of pocket for street lights and
you people have the balls to give out raises You should be ashamed.
Ignore public safety and take a raise,how do you sleep at night?

You might feel better if you move out of Fitchburg. Manhattan has a lot of street lights.
Totally agree

All my tax paying friends in this town agree with your opinion and have had enough
With negotiation that takes years, get the job done, turn the street light on .
Then (council) can talk about a raise.

I agree council should really be talking about how they can restore the street lights that former
Politicians worked so hard to obtain. It shouldn't take years to negotiate with unitil. You need to maintain what we already have (parks,pools,street lights and so on). Make it beatiful and light it up! Then business will come,and crime will go find some other dark hole to climb under.

Ask the Fitchburg State police to install a blue light in your neighborhood. A nice, bright blue light.

Or just move away.

Jeez, if the salary of the mayor was increased and the idiot Blue Light Lynch ran and won that would mean Lynch would be paid $69,999 more than he has ever previously earned.

The voters didn't want me. Said I was as crazy as a loon.

A follower? Really? That's your assessment of this mayor? She's the first who has tried to stabilize the finances. What kind of petitions are being ignored? Petitions go to the council for ratification - doesn't matter if she ignores them. That's the check and balance part of government. Surely you know that.

You will never become mayor. You will never be elected to any position in Fitchburg. The good citizens of Fitchburg will never vote for a convict,

She has catered to FSU. She has protected unlawful behaviors. Petitions to turn the lights back on were collected. this is the publics interests which she ignored! The trash program was voted down but she implemented it as there are now added cost to every citizen through trash fees.

So, having a better bond rating is wonderful! If only the city paid back any loans that it has made such as to finance its pension system it would then matter.

It is all smoke and mirrors as nothing is getting done for the citizens but for we all have less services and pay much higher fees!!! That is the fact!!!!!!!!!!
