Letter to the Editor: Canton Boards Ignored In Haste to Build Town Garage

October 28, 2016 Government, Opinion, Referendum No Comments

To the editor:

The new garage should not be built on its old site near the river. I agree with the many who have given thoughtful, fact filled arguments that support building elsewhere.

Here is a puzzle: —-  Our town government is largely made up of volunteers – both elected and appointed.
—-  Canton citizens have been prodded and even exhorted by town leaders to participate and volunteer to fill vacancies on town boards and commissions.
—-  Now those same leaders are ignoring the good and thoughtful advice of some of the town’s most professional, hard working and qualified boards:
The Permanent Municipal Building Committee
The Conservation Commission
The Long Range Plan Committee

Ironic, isn’t it?
