How are town councils regulated
I am from new gloucester maine. My town council is corrupt, they are trying to force people with clean wells to pay for and hook up to public water! This cannot be legal.. WE NEED HELP PLEASE ANYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT TOWN COUNCIL LAWS AND REGULATIONS PLEASE HELP!
There are so many problems here and the same handful of people are wearing all the hats in the town.
Today there was a town vote, there was less than a weeks notice and they some how say its legal to do a raise of hand vote and not have a count when there is an excess of 200 people at the meeting!
They are threatening jail time and seizure of property if we dont hook up! MY WELL IS NOT CONTAMINATED! the ORGANIC farmer behind me HIS WELL IS NOT CONTAMINATED!
They have had "Special" Meetings with a select few of the originally apposing town members, the leader of the group was offered a job and the rest were told by that person to Vote for the water district or get the hell out of town! People are bullied and lied to and this is so wrong!
We need help Please If any ONE CAN HELP I can go in to more detail !
