The Huntingtonian was trying to obtain information regarding the rental registration law as required by Town Code (see below).  We believe the law was passed with legislation in 2002 and recently amended to include Section 8 dwellings which were previously excluded.  We were under the impression that there was supposed to be some sort of […]

We recently questioned why another local newspaper spent 4 weeks investigating $1300 in expenses.  These are some expenses and other uses of public money that we feel are important for tax payers to know more about.  We are investigating several of them and we encourage other media and tax payers to do the same.
