As you already know, I look to other township operations to
compare with West Vincent. For example, that is how I discovered
that West Vincent non reimbursable legal fees have been, in some
cases, far in excess of 5 times the surrounding townships. The
taxpayer foots that bill. But the current Supervisors
re-appointed Steve Siana's firm, once again! Makes you wonder
who REALLY runs the Township, doesn't it?
This doesn't mean that one township has to exactly emulate
another, but certainly when there is a good example being
executed, perhaps it would be, at the very least, a good idea to
investigate the practice to see if it could be applied. This is
a common business practice. While I have shown time and time
again that West Vincent certainly does not run the township like
a business, perhaps when good people finally get in office, it
will be. In the meantime, you're stuck!
One demonstration of an action of effort by a township to keep
it's residents informed can be found right next door, in West
Pikeland Township. Look at the website they have, www.westpikeland.com.
Please take 5 minutes of your life and click on this link. As an
example, look at the listing for the meeting coming up on
Tuesday night. Click on the link to open it (you will need Adobe
but there is even a link to download the free program!). This
page not only lists the Agenda, but a list of everything being
discussed including copies of the Resolutions, etc. This way, an
informed resident can come to the meeting and ask informed
questions because they have seen what their government is doing.
For a shining example in this demonstration, in this upcoming
meeting of January 17, 2012; the Supervisors of West Pikeland
intend to bring forth a Resolution to ELIMINATE THE SUPERVISOR'S
SALARY. Compare that to West Vincent's meeting two weeks ago
(January 3, 2012) where the Agenda did not even list Item # 16,
to GIVE CLARE QUINN FREE HEALTH INSURANCE.
See the difference?
West Pikeland Supervisors consider returning earned money to the
West Vincent Supervisors elect to spread the wealth of the
township to one of their own
You be the judge of which decision is better for the Township
