Mayor Zimmer: The Comprehensive Interview pt. 3

This portion of the interview continues with yet more on taxes and a question on suspending the Open Space portion, accounting treatment for the critical area of the $4.2MM pension problem inherited from the error with the State under the Roberts Administration and also limited highlights on the plan for the Municipal Garage.

The next big area is the question of the fiscal state monitor’s plan for the Police Department announced last spring.  MSV then asks about the reval, one of the biggest issues among existing homeowners in town.  Town Hall meetings and a quarterly timeline is mentioned with the mayor’s view on following through on that promise.

The big item ahead, the process for finalizing union agreements and the role elected officials should play in this process is highlighted along with a question on what happens if the fiscal state monitor moves ahead independently on its approval.
