Need for local government reform.

City, Mayor Hamilton Green sees local government reform as pivotal in addressing the many problems facing the municipality. City Hall has been strapped for cash for years and mayor Green believes that  the council inability to broaden its revenue base is  a major stumbling block to effectively manage the city.

Green has been  the political head of City Hall for over a decade and he believes that the government is trying to micromanage the city, by holding meetings with other top city officials and side stepping the mayor.

The town Clerk has a few days to respond to multiple financial irregularities uncovered in an assessment conduct by the implementation committee of the Keith Borrowers commission.

The report pointed to  excessive overtime, phantom staff on the council payroll and fraud.
