According to The Record, the Administration (hereinafter The Gang Who Couldn't Shoot Straight) has called a special Council meeting for tomorrow night in order to vote (a third time) on the water rate increase.
A third vote is in all likelihood illegal (otherwise known in Rensselaer County as a mere technicality). However, the illegal vote will only require 5 illegal votes, not 6, because the resolution has now festered in the hands of the Council for a sufficient period of time.
When it comes to raising taxes and rates, no one works harder than the mayor.
Why the rush on the do-do-over? The water bills, with the new rate hike go out next week.
Mayor Tutunjian worked into the early morning hours drafting his list of people to blame and was not available for comment.
Who's to blame? Why not vote in our poll over on the right.
