I think there needs to be some fiscal accountibility for the Town of Manteo. I cant believe they are wasting our money on plastic toy trash cans with the town logo imprinted on them. Also, printed key rings, expensive shirts, license plates and other useless junk.

These extras cost a lot of money. Imprinting personalized items costs even more. Why are we taxpayers paying more money for water, taxes and services when there is so much adminsitrative waste? There is a recession going on. Stop the excessive spending.

Maybe they learned it from Dare County, who even bottles and labels their drinking water and gives it away. Have you seen all the La Costa shirts worn by the county commissioners and workers with the county logo on them? And, that's just the tip of the iceberg.

These items don't cost a lot and they are for good will give aways. They are a dime a dozen. Stir some sh*t elsewhere.

A friend of mine has a stainless steel water bottle with Town of Manteo on it. THEY can't be "a dime a dozen"; I could use a little
good will; where do I get my water bottle?

To Manteo Taxpayer: What the heck is a Good Will Give Away? Its OPTIONAL SPENDING right?

Imprinted and personalized items are double the cost of the same item retail. It is expensive. Bottom line.

Show us some line item figures from the budget on the town spending. Let the public see just how much is being wasted on gift items and give aways.

Its my tax money too. I dont want it used on plastic junk and expensive clothing for Town employees. I think the Town should be responsible with OUR money. How about using that money to reduce our taxes?

We dont need stainless steel water bottles. If the $20 came out of your paycheck directly you would sing a different tune. Its always easier to spend other peoples money.

Why doesn't the town of Manteo take the money and fix the damn roads (US Hwy. 64) - putting a patch here and there duesn't cut it. Come on guys - Manteo is the County Seat - clean it up, make it look inviting.

Everyone wants what they think is Free..Make your own stainless steel water bottle! Go to Walgreens or any Walmart, K Mart, CVS, etc. Get a bottle then go to ARTS AMD PLASTIC ... Look up the number in the local phone book. Ask for Sam... Take it in and they'll VERY inexpensively engrave anything you want on it...!!!

You know how everyone in the restaurant business knows all the low-down on all the other restaurants? Well Kelly's catered Collis Gallop's
wine & dine after the funeral service, but The Town of Manteo paid for it! To the tune of about $1000.00. The rumor is the Town also paid for the
clothes the pall bearers wore. Somebody needs to check this crap out.

If you want to know, simply call the Manteo town hall and ask them. Or, call Mike Kelly.

Wouldnt Kellys DONATE the food beacuse he was an employee? He was a very hard worker. I liked him a lot. But I have a big problem with the funeral costs being paid by the town.

I dont think my tax money should be spent on personal funerals unless they are going to pay for mine too. That seems illegal. Has this been reported?

if the town feels it has extra money to spend drop a little on the Manteo water front. Its the dirtiest, most neglected place in town. The retail merchants should be up in arms. One of the biggest tourist attractions on Roanoke Island and an embrassment to us all. Public parking lots, streets and side walks are always messy. Take the money, hire the help, clean old town Manteo. Our tourist, locals, and merchants would appreciate it.
