To little to late wouldn't you say? The money is all gone and now they start looking at it?

Why do the selectman have to approve what is spent anyway?

Selectmen should be looking at the towns cost to operate like staffing, hours, paid lunches, overtime, expenses etc... something that is going up and up and has an effect on the taxes!
Fight and argue about something that makes a difference not something that is already done!!

I love free stuff like everyone else. Now tell me how much it will cost taxpayers when this equipment that was bought needs replacement. The PD did not need new $3000 radios. They don't need a substation at the beach. They didn't need SUV's. Who approved motorcycles again? Transferring used cruisers to other departments? now they need more money in budgets for maintenance and replacement? The planning Board didn't weigh in on the impact to the Capital Improvement Plan. The Budget Committee didn't get input into the impacts on the budget. Circumventing the checks and balances of appropriations always leads to more taxes down the road.

Did they actually install those dash cams like they said? I have yet to hear someone pipe up and say no to dash cams.

Picture is worth a thousand words. If they put cameras in the cars, then three cops wouldn't be needed at court in every arrest. It would cut the overtime and possibly even positions.
