At the monthly meeting on Oct. 10, no public comments were allowed. There was not a list of the bills that the board reviewed — in the past, this list was available to the people who attended. Since they have moved the meetings to the gym, we can’t hear many of the things being discussed on the stage —can’t microphones be used or move the board to the floor level, which would help a little with being able to hear — or do you not want us to hear anything?
The board changed the bank they will deal with from Wilton to Mauston — sad.
When asked how filling the clerk’s position was going — it was stated that “we have a clerk.” It was noted that the present clerk was staying. Even after this job has been posted in area papers and on online employment sites and interviews had taken place. But yet the board never mentioned that the present clerk was staying in her position. At what rate of pay, we don’t know. Why was the public not informed of this decision?
Are you trying to hide things from us? What else is going on that we don’t know about?
I feel like I’m living in a dictatorship, where all the taxpayers in the village have to nod and agree with everything that you and the clerk dream up, even if it’s not the best thing for Wilton. I hope things can change and we get back to decency and normalcy on both sides!
