Claremont City Councils Votes for 1.5 Million Dollar Bond to Repair Roads
Claremont City Council members debated about adding taxes to residents for a $3 million dollar bond for road improvement. A vote on a motion to change the bond amount to 2 million dollars failed to meet the required majority vote of the Council with Carolyn Towle, Nick Koloski, Charlene Lovett and James Reed voting no. Charlene Lovett said she was in favor of a 1.5 million bond since it would give them more flexibility and would not increase the tax.
A vote on a second motion to lower the bond to 1.5 million for the needed repairs and it passed 5-1with James Reed voting no. Reed said he voted no because there is no action plan.
Assistant Mayor Victor Bergeron said he did not understand why they don’t want to give the DPW money in the budget and now they don’t want to give the DPW money in a bond.
