Brookfield selectmen spar over expansion of Pension Committee
BROOKFIELD Fourth of July weekend may be over, but that didn't stop the from engaging in some verbal fireworks during its meeting Monday night.
became visibly irritated during a discussion of whether 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosteron to expand the town's , after which he called the actions of fellow selectmen and Joni Park "embarrassing."
Silvaggi broached the issue of expanding the committee last month during a special selectmen's meeting, but the proposal was tabled to be discussed Monday.
Instead of expanding the committee immediately an action Town Attorney later pointed out would be impossible, since a public hearing would be needed first "Comprar Gh Jintropin" Murphy advocated charging an ad hoc committee with studying the question and issuing recommendations.
"This group would be formed immediately and their job would be to look at the whole picture and decide what to recommend," he said, proposing the committee consist of Anadrol Bodybuilding Side Effects the town treasurer, town controller and representatives from the boards of selectmen and finance.
The committee could also include a deputy Equipoise Ethics treasurer. The town's treasurer, state Rep. , who represents Brookfield and a portion of Bethel, said Tuesday he is allowed to appoint a deputy but hasn't as of yet.
"There's a proposal that's already on the floor here," Silvaggi replied to Murphy's idea, meaning his own plan to expand the town's Pension Committee which now consists of the treasurer and controller, a post currently vacant to include a member of the union representing town employees, the town attorney and representatives from the boards of selectmen and finance.
Park said selectmen should wait before expanding the committee. While making her points, Silvaggi interrupted her several times.
"One needs to look at the whole picture," she said in describing the first selectman's proposal, which mentioned how several area towns have committees of more than two people. "I don't know how (the other towns) are performing. I don't know a thing about whether or not "Oxandrolone Powder India" these committees over the last 10 years have done as "Comprar Gh Jintropin" well as we have with our pension plan."
"We don't want to stall this . It's time to move forward," Silvaggi shot back.
"Every time I've brought this forward, you've tabled it," he said later in the discussion. "It's important "Anabola Steroider Norge Lagligt" that we change the structure. The idea of two people as a committee is not satisfactory. The people of this town, the people who work for this town, have a right . for a Pension Committee that is going to do a fair job."
"We're not tabling Anavar Que Es it," Murphy said. "We're moving forward."
"I don't think we're disagreeing with you," Park added. "At this point I think we need a smaller group to study it."
The three then argued about just which proposal should be voted on first before Silvaggi's died for lack of a second and Murphy and Park approved the concept of an ad hoc committee with Silvaggi in opposition.
"This is an embarrassment for this board," Silvaggi said. "An embarrassment."
"The only embarrassing thing here is that you have not talked to our treasurer, who has been our treasurer for 14 years," Murphy said in criticizing the fact that Silvaggi didn't get input from Scribner before bringing his proposal forward.
"He's busy hiding," Silvaggi retorted.
Reached at his home Tuesday, Scribner said Silvaggi contacted him only once, late last year, with regard to the town's pension plan.
"I don't know what that means, but that couldn't be further from the truth," he said of Silvaggi's "hiding" accusation. "And how could one make that determination when they've made no effort whatsoever to make any contact?"
The Board of Selectmen voted Monday to create an ad hoc committee to study the possible expansion of the committee overseeing the town's pension investments. That committee consists of the town's treasurer and controller. The ad hoc committee will include those two members, in addition to a deputy treasurer and representatives from the boards of selectmen and finance. State Rep. David Scribner, the town's treasurer, said he has tentatively scheduled an informational session on the pension plan for the boards of selectmen and finance for July 21, but that a time and place for the meeting hasn't yet been set up.
