So once again, the town officials are "scaring" the residents. If they don't approve the parcel tax there will be no emergency services. This is what they do EVERY SINGLE TIME this goes to the voters. What the voters need to do is send a very strong message to the administation that they are tired of the wasteful spending. That they are tired of incompetance. That they are tired of unethical employees. That they are not going to foot the bill to pay off multiple law suits. Live within your means. Like the rest of us.
