I truly appreciate the hard work that goes into cutting budgets. I know from personal expertise to “Right-Size” government agencies are a hard task to accomplish successfully. However, the consolidation of these positions is a mistake! Knowing that other areas could have been cut or eliminated to find the same saving. I was hoping with the changing of guard inside of City Hall and on the Council - there would be some stronger leadership to take on this mission. However, this cannot happen unless there is a long-term strategy approved that everyone in Standish can understand. The city website http://www.cityofstandish.com/index.html would a good tool to communicate this plan but it needs some updating.
