  • this website is very good, you can go and see it

  • I assume a copy of Mr. Abatelli’s report and all related doucuments will be sent to the state comptroller and also be availiable for the public to foil and view. Mayor Nyce should take the lead on this one and see that they are speedly disemented to the papers and the public

  • Of course her honesty and integrity were never in question by you, she’s your buddy. The word “stolen” and taking money out of register and putting it “in her pockets” was in the report so lets not pretend it wasn’t. It now should be investigated to see just exactly how much “taxpayer” money went missing due to the ” inadequate cash controls” of putting the money in her pockets. Oh, having Dave Abatelli investigate the discrepancies, pure brilliance! Abatelli could never stand up to Ortiz when she barked he cowered like a puppy who had been kicked repeatedly, so I’m sure the “investigation” was very thorough! In a real investigation no one is ” above and beyond approach” if they were there would be no reason to investigate .

  • Ha – speedily? we spent all this money to make a village website where board minutes could be viewed by the public – they threw up one batch – through 9/10 and nothing since. NO ZBA minutes and NO planning board minutes. this village does not want us to know what they are doing.

  • “The proposed revision still doesn’t require that the village issue requests for proposals for engineering and legal services, The mayor said state law doesn’t require RFPs for such services and board members make decisions in awarding those jobs based on prior experience with various firms.”

    The Mayor’s statement is true as to state law concerning RFP’s what is not mentioned in this article is that RFP’s are not forbidden either, in fact, the state auditor in his report stated that RFP’s were a “best practice” and the Village in their response to that audit admitted that to be true. To eliminate competitive bidding in municipal contracts in my mind does nothing to serve the needs of the taxpayers. To exempt an insurance adjuster, engineering firm, architect, or an auditor does nothing to bring down costs of these service, if anything we probably pay more (which coincidently was also mentioned in the state comptrollers report).

  • Is real reporting dead, The Times report on what was said at the village meeting almost appears to be a handout from the mayor. Several serious questions were asked by people, yet know mention is made of them. Does Julie take her orders from a the administraton, That a question I intend to ask on the 3rd.

  • Julia Lane should not be reporting on anything that has to do with Ortiz she is biased and will slant the story to protect her. Not exactly the behavior one would expect from a REPORTER but she is why most people don’t buy the Suffolk times any more.
