Letter to the Editor: Government Volunteers Needed To Review Tiverton Ordinances
Tiverton resident Joe Sousa will be asking the Tiverton Town Council next month to form a subcommittee to review all of the town's ordinances, in order to find ways to shed some of the town's costs.
To the Editor:
Has anyone ever told you, "You need a permit for that?" You may have scratched your head and asked, "For what?"
I've asked this question many times myself. Next month I will be requesting that the Tiverton Town Council form a committee to review town ordinances. This committee would review ordinances and make recommendations to reduce red tape and workload in our town offices. Those recommendation will be reviewed by the Town Council and state representatives. This will assist the council in making appropriate changes in reducing red tape. They will be requesting changes in state requirements as well. You may have heard the words "unfunded mandates."
I'm hoping that we can reduce the work load for town workers, and make Tiverton a little more business-friendly. If you are interested in helping our council with this overdue review, please contact me at email@example.com.
Take the time to lend a hand and we will all prosper.
