why is this prudential committee have this power to give themselves a raise?? don't tell me it's need for equipment etc...it is going towards pensions for them and the workers. i am sure the water dept supervisor will be getting close to 88% of his salary when he retires soon. he has not even been super that long. and he will soon retire!! why can't the selectmen be in charge of water dept like they are with public works anyone know?????

What the hell do they need new equipment for all he does is ride around all day in the towns truck. What does this committee think people can afford to pay more for water when there are no jobs in town at all. Raises should be up to the people of Adams not just a group of people that want to give themselves a raise. If Belanger makes more than 15 bucks a hour we are getting screwed big time. Glad you brought this up to the public..

just idea that they (prudenital mystery committee) can decide to raise the water rates so high just so they can all pad their pensions is an outrage. the water dept supervisor will retire soon with about 80.000 a year and the secletmen are mute about it

Yeah sure...ordering cheese and putting it out on a shelf is a big money job requiring all kinds of job skills.I'd expect at least a BA in shelf replenishment technology would be needed for this job. I am humbled.
Guess you really don't know anything after all in what some of the full time works make because I do. The cheese she sell is specialty cheese and not at the deli what a ahole you are. I used to work there before I retired and know what some of the full timers were making! She got the job offer when Price Chopper first built the pittsfield store and offered her good money when they were closing the North Adams store down. The Golubs have plenty of money and that pittsfield store makes a killing everyday. The head managers makes more money a year then what the head of the water department makes.

i don't care what his wife does at price chopper i am sure she does more work in 1 day then he does all week. i doubt she makes anywere the pay he does for doing nothing but riding around in his truck and hitting a few golf balls up at forest park while on duty. i can't stand the fact i have to pay a lot more for water just to pad belanger's pension before he retires
