Council defers action on real estate tax reduction and noise ordinanceThe October Town Council meeting kicked off with competing resolutions about Mayor Fred Rummage’s access to town hall. Council member Steve Kennedy placed Resolution 50-10 on the agenda, which is a resolution to reaffirm Resolutions 27-09 and 33-09. Those 2009 resolutions prohibit the mayor from maintaining an office in town hall and further directed the town attorney to issue a “No Trespass” notice to Mayor Rummage.
Rummage, in response to Kennedy’s resolution, placed Resolution 51-10 on the agenda, which would rescind Resolutions 27-09 and 33-09. Rummage spoke to the council and citizens present noting that “When I ran for this office there was a physical office for the mayor. It is very embarrassing to me when I have to meet with people from out of town and citizens; this is not an orthodox manner in which to conduct business.”
