This is a water question. If you choose to participate, your answers are due at the Gazette on May 11 at 5 p.m. They will be published in both the Tinytown Gazette and Tinytown Unleashed. Mr. Carr may actually vote on this article on Tuesday, May 8th if Cohasset Selectmen choose to do so. If so, he should not have a problem with discussing the issue with voters on my very popular, well-read blog and newspaper, which he really enjoys reading. You can both have as many words as you wish.
Mr. Carr’s question: You’re dealing with a lot of ‘dark-outs,’ these days. After reading a draft of the Annual Town Meeting warrant, we have learned that we are dealing with yet another black-out. Selectmen have approved a question on the Selectmen’s warrant, the Selectmen’s warning to the public, that asks Town Meeting to give up its rights and to turn those rights over to the interim town manager, members of the water commission and other special/secret people who will negotiate Cohasset Water concession terms on our behalf. You have had many discussions regarding the adjournment of Annual Town Meeting to May 21st. But it appears if Annual Town Meeting votes Yea on Article 32 no May 21st meeting needs to take place. You’re on the inside. Please explain what is happening here.
Mrs. Gjesteby’s question: What should the Selectmen’s role be, here? The Cohasset Water commissioners will not have any bid responses back until the day of Annual Town Meeting or the Monday following ATM. Should this article even be on the warrant? Should Selectmen be sponsoring an article on THEIR WARRANT asking Town Meeting to give up its rights to see the controversial Water concession? What should the Advisory Committee’s role be in this case?
