hard to believe bf responds much if any to saxtons river for calls, i have called bf pd 3 times for accidents and gun shots fired at 2 am in the morning in n guageville and they never came and i was told that's not there area so the state police came instead, and if they did come a few times for a call it is peanuts and a waste of the tax payers money to even think of charging for it, bf gets a lot of extras from rockingham and its kind of foolish for a bf resident to want to charge themselves again since they pay rockingham taxes also,
in this day and age we all should try to get along and work together with our neighbors, i think all of windham county could work together more and save everyone more money,like share costs of street sweepers and special equiptment with all the towns like westminster,rockingham,saxtons river,grafton ect ect, there's a lot that these towns and villages could share if we could get it out of our heads that the other guys trying to screw each other all the time, its really is kind of childish, and only costs the tax payers in the end, politics always seam to make the cost rise,the indians and workers who give you all great services are the ones who suffer, and when ya keep slamming them and trying to take what little they have now all you do is make them less efficient and make there moral go way down,

The dam is going to have to pay more in taxes with the value going back up to 128 million so that will be about 5 million in taxes to the town, the village if lucky will get Three hundred thousand If the selectboard decides it wants to cough it up.
What if the village left the town of Rockingham then the dam money would go to the village, just something to think about.
I will confess I would rather live in the country then put up with all the crime and noise of this village in many respects Spuds the road you live on is a nice country setting and I dont think for 1 minute you want sidewalks or paved roads out there do you?
The selectboard with McFlea and his Cronies did the greatest give away with the hotel project that was bought with tax payer money all totaled over 300k and gave it to the 3 Shysters for $11.400. not to mention all the deeded parking spaces and Power CO property. The Shysters split up and 1 guy got bought out for his share 350k HOW NICE.
Now before you say development Sovernet got over 12 Million for the sale yet have they put any of their money in that project ?NOOOOOOOOOO they grub for grant money that Dutch finds for them and yea the put windows in they sell themselves.
The 3 Shysters want us folks to contribute, show community support and buy in with more funds but screwed the locals over a plumbing job by hiring Keating out of Keen NH trying to get the bids down, so much for BUY LOCAL Roger Riccio was quoted as saying in the paper over Sam's closing huh? The folks that will run the restaurant are very nice and hard working with good food, I would suggest they stay in their present location.
The theater renovations over 3.5 million and when a real stage company actually wanted to do a Broadway production hell NOOOOOOOO we sent them packing but Vermont festivals is okay and now we will spend more money for the new projector and deplete the savings the town has in that fund to and lets not forget that 10k raise Kali got from the selectboard right after cutting the 3 positions. " McFlea we made painful choices and cuts"
The only saving grace about the Bellows Falls Fire dept is the callmen not the paid professionals who take the money and run to their other jobs leaving the callmen to pull the weight to SHOW UP FOR REAL EMERGENCIES. SPEAKING OF WEIGHT CHIEF GOT A 5% RAISE AND THE UNION BOYS GOT 9% OVER THE NEXT 3 YEARS.
The police need to get out of the station house and show some results for 1.1 million dollars and yes by all means get out and vote no to McFlea and the Queen Riccio.
