Auberger Stifles Resident Input ... Again

  
Several people sent notes to me about the goings on at tonight's Town Board meeting. It seems that a bunch of very angry residents who oppose the building of the Bryant & Stratton on Long Pond Rd. showed up, so the Town Board dealt with this before the regular meeting began. Auberger passed the buck to DiRaddo & Tajkowski to deal with. DiRaddo told them that an appeal would be futile, because the judge determined that the traffic for B&S would be no worse than traffic generated by other uses that wouldn't require a special permit. (So why did our Town Board ever vote against this project and waste our money on a court case in the first place?)

Once the B&S issue was settled, I'm told Auberger skipped right over the Resident's Forum portion of the meeting and went onto the other business of the board. At the end, and after everyone had left, he asked if anyone wanted to address the Town Board. He was described as wearing his "sh*t eating" grin.

Updates to be posted as I get more info ...

The Town Board and Hairberger knew BEFORE they even voted NO against the B&S issue that B&S would take the town to court and win. So said the board's attorney. The board played to the angry, upset NIMBY's cast their NO vote because they did not collectivly have the stones to be honest with those residents in the first place. Now the board can put all the blame on B&S and the courts. Residents of this town should know better.........this is BAU for Hairberger and crew.
