Barre officials could do more to reduce taxes
In response to Mr. Chamberlain, Town of Barre Supervisor’s 7-12-2017 posting.
I fully understood that the CHIP money has to be spent on Highways.
The point is that the town officials appropriated money last year for the roads in the Town of Barre’s budget. Withdraw $64,450 of this money you appropriated, replace it with the CHIP money. The amount of work your Highway Department was going to perform would still have been accomplished. The more money government gets, the more incumbents spend on every level of government!
Why can’t Barre start setting an example for the rest of government and give back to its taxpayers?
Remember that grant money is taxpayer money.
