Rumor-mongering? Come on Tim, you've been there long enough to know better. Either you have your head buried in the sand, or you are being lied to by the town management.
The inspection report is dated October 24, 2012 and is signed by Sam Neth, Assistant District Engineer for the Dept. of Health Office of Drinking Water. The defiencies noted include lack of screening in several areas, replacing a meter, installation of air gaps and sample taps, freeze protection, computer alterations, leaks, lack of check valves, need for erosion protection, etc. Apparently one of the underground reservoirs is not running, as the Health Dept. requires notification before resuming operation. A deadline of November 23rd was given for some of this work. Was this deadline met?
The town management has become quite adept at hiding these issues from the citizens. Tim, don't let them hide it from Council.
Where did you get this report? Where can others see it? I would like to see it for myself.

Call the Health Dept at 804-674=2880 and ask for a copy of the inspection I described.

The problem with PW is they need to eliminate the "management" that doesn't "work" Although there are some that re-invest monies into the private clubs around town,( eagles,vfw,moose) and so on... He doesn't offer any corrective action or support to the Public Works structure let alone its employees. Get rid of "HIM" and save 75K a year plus benefits......I agree reduce the dead weight and let the woman do their jobs!Not sure he even knows what folks at PW are even doing, he spends most of his time in the office!!!!

I agree with most of what you said as far as getting rid of the dead weight at the top (so true), except the evidence seems to show that the current women there are not the right people, either. Not because of being female, but because they don't perform their duties in an efficient and effective manner. Why is Jill MIA anytime there is bad weather? Why did the Health Dept write up nearly 3 pages of deficiencies with the water system? Why is morale at the lowest it's ever been, with reports of Jill and Jean "screaming and swearing" at employees? Why are employees being injured and having to fight the town for workman's comp coverage?

There needs to be clean sweep.

That's stupid. I'll send a copy to the area newspapers, and anybody with the nerve to post their address here I'll mail you a copy personally.

Well Harry and Hank your on to something there. I am concerned about some of the reports I hear about Jill but I think that with effective direction and support there could be some positive attitudes. If she isn't doing her job then let's get someone in there that knows enough about what she's suppose to be doing. Val needs to do something with the structure at PW. speaking of MIA where's Rob??? At least Jeanne's not afraid to be out working!!! I see her on the beach front almost daily. Lets point fingers at the dead weight don't beat around the bush! I agree with hank. He needs to GO!

From what I have seen I think Jean has potential since she does get out there and work, but she needs to get away from some bad influences. Rob has to go - he's totally useless, and Jill needs to go - she's a lawsuit waiting to happen. Val won't do anything. Where's Council?

Your right. I think jean has some good ideas but being squashed by rob. He's afraid of being out done. I think it's time the town quit hiring people to get the job done because the folks there aren't capable of doing their job. Rob is a joke!!! Lets wait till the next snow storm and try to figure out which bar he's in!!!! Lets weed out the losers and save some money.

Someone should check on Robs qualifications. You will find out hes nothinbg but a half way plumber. Has no credentials. Is not even close to an engineer. Could not even carry an engineers lunch bucket. What a joke

how can you say Jill's a lawsuit waiting to happen? what does that mean? what proof do you have, other than hearsay. have you ever worked for her? do you personally know someone who has or does currently work for her? you are slamming someone without cause or proof, in my opinion. I've heard good and bad about her, but cannot form an opinion because I do not know her or know anyone who does know her. just my 2 cents worth
