AMHERST TIMES: "The Amherst Town Board needs to give back their pay."


AMHERST, N.Y. -- There is a Town Board meeting tonight. I went to the work session at 4:00 p.m. where they decided what will be discussed publicly at the 7:00 p.m. meeting.

There were 41 resolutions on the agenda for tonight. The Town Board put 40 of them on the consent agenda which means they will not be brought up for any citizen discussion.

Every citizen in Amherst must know these Board Members make $37,000 a year. Attending tonight's Town Board meeting is a joke. You just sit in the audience and say nothing.

You are allowed to speak for 3 minutes at the beginning of the meeting and at the end of the meeting 
if you haven't already spoken earlier in the meeting.

The Town Board doesn't want anyone to come to the meetings. The last two meetings had a total of 8 citizens attend, and they were bored out of their minds.

No need to go to tonight's meeting. Instead I would enjoy the beautiful weather we are having. The Town Board will get their wish very soon.
