Did anyone know that there is a salary vote in the budget for the Mayor and the board of trustees.
Mayor $ 12,000
Trustees $ 6,000
And I am sure benefit will be next.
As it is now they spend over one million a year in village salaries.
So much for a volunteer village, and what are we getting for this?

Are you complaining that the board will be getting some small compensation for their time and effort?
Paul is long gone and his promises of an all volunteer village were a joke, and it is ridiculous to think that was ever a possibility.
This is a real government and it requires a real staff to run it. They are still running this village without raising taxes or borrowing money, and continue to have a surplus so what exactly is your problem?
Hate is a destructive emotion to those you hate and yourself, get over it already. If you have some good suggestions, share them...otherwise shut up.

There you go... agree with them or SHUT UP! Well, Mr. STFU, the VISION TEAM, along with ALL the members of the MBVEC agreed to a NO SALARY, ALL VOLUNTEER staff BEFORE we were even a village! JUST LIKE I SAID BEFORE, IF GARY GETS VOTED BACK IN, SALARIES ARE NEXT!
They havent done a job well enough to get a dollar fifty a year let alone a few thousand. And that will be just the beginning. They will vote themselves in a 5 thousand dollar a year raise every year from now on.

want to save money in the village budget? Have that fat slob Tim NOT sit in car every weekend at the Marinas SPYING on the MBPOA fixing it up. Honestly, what is that fat slob doing?? He sits there for HOURS watching! Hey Building inspector... THERE ARE NO BUILDINGS THERE! Dont you anything better to do? Like watch Garys crap shack at 106 cranberry?

this village is run by a bunch of lying crooks! Yes Brady, a bunch OF LYING CROOKS!!!!! And I didnt use any full names so good luck suing me.

I personally have no problem with the Mayor and the Trustees receiving a small stipend. Would you like to work for nothing? I know I wouldn't. I think if you research other Villages, they pay their mayor and trustees. I believe the Mayor of Westhampton Dunes makes well over $100,000 a year.

Why are you bringing me into this? I enjoyed the quiet. If you are opposed to the idea of compensation, speak out. I don't sue people. I just don't think it is productive to slander anyone. If you want to state your opinion, go ahead.

But how could we pay them if our budget is only 500,000 a year? I do recall the RIGHT people saying this before a village vote and they were called liars and slumlords for spreading the lies that a village cant operate on 500,000 dollars and a volunteer staff. My what a difference 3 years makes!

its' not eh "small" stipend that is the problem. it is the benefits that are the problem. that will bring the 12,000.00 per year to over 25000.00 they are required to give the benefits if they have a salary. it is a nys law.

no, i would not work for nothing. that is why i don't run for trustee. i volunteer my time for things that are important to me. everyone on that board said they would not take a salary. westhampton dunes homes are worth about ten times more than homes in mastic beach. also, they have actual services provided by licensed people. ask tim for his license.

well, i guess now that they are paying themselves they can't cry at meetings that they are only volunteers who are doing their best. Now MY TAX DOLLARS are paying them, and i will expect them to comport themselves as professionals and do their jobs without complaining.

In year two we were over a million in administrative salaries already. That is now going up.

The code enforcement and courts costs $300K and the revenue from fines is only going to be $75K. That is a $225K loss.

Don't forget Mayor Bill was taped wanting a salary over a year ago.

Westhampton Dunes has 11 year round residents and a few hundred seasonal homes on one small stretch of road. That was like when the MBVEC compared us to Sagaponock. The blind leading the blind.

why isn't it on their website? nys open meetings law says that if they have a website they are supposed to post this type of information before meetings. again they are flagrantly violating the nys open meetings law. i guess now that alan is one of the stepford village people, he has forgotten about open meetings law and now prefers closed and secret meetings. they are in lockstep at every work session. nothing is debated or even really discussed. where and when are they meeting and discussing these things?

Why is it in the budget already? Don't they need to have public meetings about it first? Then vote on it? If its in the budget, then their minds are made up already. Once again, the wishes of the residents are past over for the pockets of the few people making money on this village. Just say it already, the village was formed for a few to make money and to hell with the rest. And Zany, I can't wait until you're fired. You are a total POS and you smell. When you think you're the voice of the people, the people are F-ED!

Why is it that a negative, village hating moron like yourself feels so superior to others that they can sling condescending insults at anyone that disagrees with them?

You said benefits, and were not specific about retirement payments, and I quote:

"its' not eh "small" stipend that is the problem. it is the benefits that are the problem. that will bring the 12,000.00 per year to over 25000.00 they are required to give the benefits if they have a salary. it is a nys law."

Why don't you get you facts RIGHT, DUMMY.

And for the record - these petty, nit-picking complaints are ridiculous.
