Roxbury First Selectman, legislative leader at odds over regionalization

The Council of Small Towns hosted an issues forum Wednesday.  Legislative leaders were on hand, and there was a heated exchange on one particular issue.  House Speaker Brendan Sharkey says more local government efficiency will be sought.

 

He said while the state should get out of the way of municipalities to create more efficiency, he doesn't think taxpayers should be in a position that perpetuates inefficiencies where they do occur.

 

Roxbury First Selectman Barbara Henry says towns have been surviving and clawing every day to regionalize expenses, and that it's wrong for leaders to make new demands.
