Maiden dumped this into a workshop to kill the issue. He is as full of it as a Christmas turkey. He has to go.
Bet you can't get anyone to admit they voted for him.

In checking the minutes, see how many motions he makes(most of them) then Todd always second. Can't tell me that this is not pre-planned. His motto "I vote for the benefit of the citizens of Saltville" You bet. He is always stirring in something he knows nothing about. Yes he needs to go. Taking the others with him. Joe Fry, you have not made a difference. Neil is still running the show.

A lot of questions to be answered. Can't ever remember our town being in such sad shape. Read Marion's minutes and see all the progress going on in that town. I'm can't believe we have nothing going on. There is a rumor that Magic Mart may be coming to town. Maybe they can share the GCS building witt the town crew. There are at least 10 empty buildings down town. Since the parking lot has been changed, there is no downtown parking for the merchants.
Now there is a worhtwhile project !
1.) Move / Remove the stage
2.) Revise / return the downtown parking area.
3.) Downtown revitalization / promote small business and
downtwon merchants !

Yes - Town business is being discussed and conducted outside the
Town council meetings.

A direct violation of the Freedom of Information ACT !

." But the lawyer agreed that Virginia's Freedom of Information Act is clear on the point that committees and subcommittees created by a public body become public bodies themselves and are then subject to FOIA.

"FOIA does require that every public body post notices in a conspicuous public place and electronic posting is encouraged," Dillon said, noting that residents filing a request to be told of public meetings should be given a three-day notice of meetings directly.

Walking in to a meeting with motions and no public discussion is certainly an indication of clandestine meetings taking place.

You idiots ( Vince and Company ) are being watched !

Where's the February minutes. Haven't been posted as of 4/11. We got four people laying around the town hall. Those should have been posted no more than two days after approval. We as taxpayers pay to have those posted on ''our'' website. We shouldn't need an foi request.
another crazy meeting

Randall do your personal on your own time. Ron shut your mouth. We need leadership. Where are you Joe?

Feds are watching every move ...
Town Council meeting minutes are reviewed
by Town Attorney and last minute edits are made
before posting on the Town website.

Last meeting minutes are not read and approved
at each meeting as required by procedure.
Purposely so the Town council can deny the
accuracy of the meeting minutes !

No accountability !

It's April 18th. Why hasn't council minutes for February been posted yet? Been too busy kidding the golfer's a$$es with a golf cart ordinance to get them posted? Let them either walk or drive to town like everyone else. Or gonna screw us with the new budget? We see all the veolie water trucks around town. We know who's paying and it sure ain't the ''town''. Improve the fire dept. Get a chief who knows what he's doing. What we got sure ain't worth paying Frye.

Those minutes confirm those who
voted for the Veolia takeover of our water
treatment!

Now Mr. Maiden can have a nice
part time job to supplement his retirement !

Council is selling out our town for barbeque,
biscuits and nepotism !

We need a clean sweep - get rid of all these
idiots !
read the paper

In this week's paper I can't believe that the mayor of our town made the statement that "opinions are like butt holes" in a public meeting. How shameful. As a member of a family whose loved one died due to the fact that we do not have enough volunteers helping, that again the mayor made the statement in regard to the first responder not being needed. Yes, someone needs to cuss and talk down to the mayor. Any day now, the volunteers in our town will be screwed again and again. MAYOR DO YOU VOLUNTEER FOR ANY ORGANIZATION? GO BACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE TOWN LIMITS WHERE YOU BELONG.

ATTENDED last years sessions, only to watch the budget not followed as voted on. Why waste everyone's time? Spend, spend, and more spending not in the budget. Right Mayor.
good job

Good Job chief tell old Frye how it is. He must not want the first responder because he is in with popeye. How can he go into the fire hall and threaten the members? If he needs to meet, then he needs to request a meeting. Our town is so red-neck. TAYLOR SAID that he town charter requires the citizens a fire dept. WE THE CITIZENS DEMAND THAT THE THE MAYOR RESIGN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

The Saltville Mayor has NO influence whatsoever !
He is the least of our worries !

Mike Taylor and the Johnson's are still running
the Town's business. You need proof ?
Attend a council meeting - the councilmen come in
with motions already written and groomed, no
discussion or input from the community !

Vince and Joe are taking the bait hook, line and
sinker - They both are just too stupid
to realize it !

Very disappointed in our Town Council !

Who ever judged this site clueless is clueless. The comments the mayor made was ugly. Could he not had a meeting with the fire dept. and give them his opinion. No, he had to act big and mean at a meeting. If I was those volunteers, I would quit as soon as possible. Then I would join another dept. whose town knows how to act.

I did read the paper! Do you have a law degree??? Why does the Town have TWO (2) lawyers??? When you pass the bar exam then you can call me clueless.

"READ"!!!!! Try reading the "Council Minutes" posted on the Town of Saltville Web-sit!!!!!! There were TWO (2) lawyers at the Town Council Meeting. The "newspaper" (Saltville Progress) Did Not!!! I repeat, did not mention why the Town needs two lawyers.

I think that the "Mayor" can say anything he wants to, he also has my permission to say whatever he wants to at the Fire Station.

"The man who reads nothing at all is better
educated than the man who reads nothing but
newspapers."

The Saltville Progress is a platform for
Mike Taylor and the Johnson's !

Attend a meeting and compare the minutes and
details to the text that actually makes the
printed newspaper.

Many of the details that are embarassing to the
controlling group are not mentioned in
newspaper print !

Bottom line ... Do not believe everything you
read in a newspaper !

Especially the Saltville Progress !
