Council Meeting Summaries

In support of the White Paper, during the August 3, 2009 meeting the Council discussed how to implement the necessary changes in zoning now allowed under the 1 and 20 Amendment.

The Council also considered the hiring of a chief financial officer for the Town. While this position will require funding, P.R.I.Z.E. believes it would be money well spent. P.R.I.Z.E. hopes that, with certain criteria, this CFO position will create a transparency at Town Hall that previously has not existed. P.R.I.Z.E. will support this added layer of bureaucracy only if the CFO position reports directly to the Town Council.

The CFO position was not funded in the 2010 budget. At best, the position will not be funded until passage of the 2011 budget. That pushes the timeline to begin the search for filling the position to mid-2011 or 2012. Depending on the date the position is budgeted, it could be 2013 before the Town has a CFO on board.
