Town Board Expenses: Update
This statement, which was received as part of our FOIL request from the Town, was misleading:
1) Instead of receiving a town-issued cell phone, Mark Cuthbertson and Glenda Jackson opted to receive a monthly stipend to be applied toward the cost of using their personal cell phones for Town business (other Town officials have made the same choice and receive the same stipend). Susan Berland has a Town-issued cell phone that is used for Town business (as do some other Town officials who carry two cell phones: one for town business and our personal ones).
We just learned that Mark Mayoka does not have a Town issued cell phone and he does not receive any reimbursements toward his personal cell phone. We want to thank Mark Mayoka for being fiscally responsible and considerate of the the struggling tax payer. He is the only councilperson who does this. These are very difficult economic times for most people. We appreciate every effort that saves money for the residents of Huntington.
