The BOS has lost control of the Western Ave. rebuild project! The headline in this week’s Messenger newspaper says it all: NON-COMPLIANCE (read here).
In a stunning development, The Messenger is reporting that Town Administrator (TA) Christine Trovato’s report to the BOS have been less than accurate;
“Compounding the situation, a more serious matter arose last week. A few weeks ago, the Board was informed that the concrete head-walls Road Agent Tom Weston ordered for the project did not match the culverts to be inserted into them, requiring extra time and expense to enlarge the openings. The Board asked the Town Administrator to look into the cause and report back. In an apparent effort to protect Weston, Trovato informed the Board that all headwalls are the same size and need to be enlarged on site, a statement Mitchie Corp, supplier of the headwalls, later adamantly refuted, saying they delivered what was ordered which were improperly installed. A spokesman further stated that Trovato never checked back with them when the problem arose.”
This is not the first time the TA’s actions have been called into question. On several occasions this blog has uncovered situations where policy has not been followed. (read here) (read here)
The time has come for the BOS to take definitive action. I think we all know what needs to be done here…
OHB…keeping it real… making it easier for you to find the facts so you can draw your own conclusions…..
“There are things public officials would never do if they thought somebody might call them out on it.”
