Say no to new hires
Tiverton Town Council again this year wants to hire a Town Planner . We
had a planner years back who had little to do . He spent more time doing
the town administrators duties than any thing else . We all saw the
plans for the north end . Pipe dream renderings that had no base in
reality . The truth is there's not enough work for a part time planner
We see more businesses leaving town than coming in . The council should
be reducing regulations,not drawing new ones . They turned away several
businesses that wanted to buy lots in the industrial park ?
This council needs to come back to earth . The roads in Tiverton are
reverting to gravel with over eight million dollars of needed repairs .
The schools need close to the same amount in repairs . Adding staff
that's not needed is not in the best interest of our town . The average
home owner can expect another tax increase this year . Three or four
hundred dollars more on top of the already heavy burden . Did the
average resident get a pay raise this year ?
