Letter from Resident:  05-10-17 Resident Letter on Cost of doing business with the Town

  1. Former Rye Police Chief and Town Administrator Alan Gould’s firm, Municipal Resources Inc. (“MRI”) has been retained to conduct a search for a full-time Fire Chief.  The Selectmen and MRI will make the hiring decision without involving the citizens or Fire Department employees.  More Detail
  2. Options for the Harbor Road Bridge were considered.  The engineer has determined that the weight capacity is not as great as had been thought, and refurbishment is needed whether or not the capacity is increased. More Detail
  3. The Town is out of compliance on use of the Outer Marker site, transferred by the Federal Government a number of years ago.  The site will be turned into a park. More Detail
  4. It appears that the Selectmen will change the process for their committee and commission appointments, requiring a full committee vote, rather than the recommendation of the chairman, and posting openings for a period of time.  More Detail
  5. The State Department of Transportation has denied the Town’s request to install parking meters along Ocean Blvd. in an October 2016 letter not received by the town until this month.  More Detail
  6. A resident who arrived slightly late to the three hour meeting sat through almost the entire meeting, only to learn that her letter had been filed without discussion as part of the Consent Agenda vote.  More Detail
