Town money & lawsuit defense

Sussex County Online User Forums: Fenwick Island Discussion Forum: Town money & lawsuit defense

Is anyone paying attention. It seems as though self proclaimed mayor Baunchalk is never available for comment and the rest of the cabal is following that dubious leadership.

As for Manning's lawsuit against the council members as private citizens, I would hope that the citizens named in the lawsuit do not attempt to hijack funds from the town coffers for their legal defense efforts. At this point, with all that is dribbling out like a slow water torture, one gets the opinion that the actions of self proclaimed mayor and others is truly indefensible.

Does the town charter have any provisions for the recall of elected officials or will we have to wait until August to pump out the septic tank?

We may have to wait until August. Please keep yourself updated and make sure that anyone that you know that owns property in Fenwick is aware of these continuing problems.

Also, all property owners get to vote in the elections and do not always do so. We will need to get them voting next year. Theo stepped up to the plate at the last council meeting.

Just called the Bethany Fire Hall to inquire about rental fees, having read that the FI Council is paying $3000.00 to hold the Dec. 4 meeting on the Chief there. Funny thing is I can rent it for $250.00 a night..Why is the council paying 3000???? Must be another example of the prevailing attitude that, It's not our money lets spend it. Why doesn't this council do the right thing and RESIGN, as Mr. Haon did at the last council meeting. He is going to be very surprised, because many people in this town,took him at his word. We will see how good his word is, if he is still on th dais at the next meeting. If this keeps up they will have to rent a hanger at Salisbury Airport for the next meeting.

A clarification on the town's cost for moving the hearing to the Bethany fire hall. Council voted to spend up to $3,000 for the hall's rental, a better P.A. system if needed, security, etc. It could be less than $3,000, but not more.
