Last night, Councilwoman Mitzi Antezzo, Chair of the WPCA Commission, stood up to the beast.  Much disrespect was tossed Mitzi’s way, but she stood her ground and well, chalk one up or the taxpayers!  Our sewer use fees will be decreasing to $396, from $450!  Kudos and thank you for serving the taxpayers and residents […]

The Fire Chief parks his Town-provided vehicle directly under the utility pole where the Osprey are nesting.  Interesting fact is that the Osprey pairs have returned to this same site year after year adding to their […]

Also in that quote, Thomas Jefferson said that “societies exist under three forms sufficiently distinguishable.”  Of the three, the one seems most fair and just is a […]

November, just six months ago.  How fast some new members of the Town Council forgot their promises and really gave the taxpayers a screwing, and again, no KY!
