Just a reminder to everyone that the Selectmen had put together a list of the absolute minimum repairs needed on BMH. When the estimate came back, it was $321,000 – an amount too large to propose without bonding.
So Mr. Houseman, after having been jerked around for six months getting estimates for half dozen impossible scenarios, did what any good car salesman would have done. He asked them to just tell him how much they wanted to spend. Look at the Selectman’s minutes of Dec 14 under the heading Town Hall, or better yet watch them make the sausage at about 31 minutes into this video.
Now, with the politically correct amount narrowly approved, the word is that this is a good thing that will solve all the pressing problems.
If you can’t afford the operation, touch up the Xrays.
