Jeanne Kingsley, Marc Faecher and the Rest of the Council Decide that 2% Cost of Living Adjustment is Not Enough

March 22, 2017

During last night's Town Council Meeting, the Mayor and Council once again indicated that they would not abide by a cost of living increase that you and I live by. Instead of living by the COLA that the State assigns to municipalities, the Council quietly and without discussion, introduced an ordinance allowing up to 3.5% increases - but only capped for some items. The other items, the ones that you and I have trouble with and the ones that should be capped, will have no cap (ex. insurance and capital expenditures).
