Karin you say one thing and criticize the other. You are critical of Helen and accuse her of violating the Town Charter, then want the Council to bring Kevin Ptiman back. Well under the Charter they can’t. The Town Manager has hiring and firing authority over Town Departments. So the Council brings in Mr. Jones, as an temporary interum Town Manager, who can bring Pitman back and you immediately start attacking him rather than giving the man a chance. Your making smart comments that he perhaps got all his training in water and waste water in prison is undignified for you. The only clusterf&%k is the anonymous cowards that use this blog to complain, criticize and cast dispersions, yet offer nothing productive. Helen nor the Council has the power to snap their fingers and fix what took years for the Manager and previous Council to break and will take time to fix.
Under Ordinance 04-01 (A) (1) Section 2.05 Special Meetings The mayor, or any 2 Council Members, with 24-hours notice to the other Council Members can call a Special Meeting. So the meeting scheduled for Wed Oct 30 is not a violation of the Town Charter as some have suggested.
