    Don’t really see how this is news but I do conclude after reading it that it appears to be a good ole fashioned peeing contest.

    The people of the Town of Veazie continue to be misrepresented by the two trustees. The term should be changed to mistrustee.

      That’s for sure! People should know that one of these 2 trustees approached the sewer district’s “local bank” with an effort to sabotage the loan process. He told the bank officer that the district had spent all their reserves on raises and the management had changed as a result of it. Then the trustee lied in subsequent public meetings about his conversation with the bank staff, trying to point the finger at several others. It is unfortunate to be represented by folks that do not value honesty, and in fact, have no qualms about making any story fit their personal agendas. DISGUSTING.

    So let’s recap.

    According to the website, Chairman Tomilson approved the last budget.

    The trustees now say they had no idea there was a budget shortfall until it “came to light during an August presentation by the utility’s auditor.”

    In another recent BDN article, the “utility’s auditor” claims he has brought the shortfall to the trustees every year for four years.

    Also on the website is that Chairman Tomilson has been on the board at least 1 1/2 years.

    Something doesn’t add up, and it’s not the budget.
