Nobody likes tax hikes, nobody likes sewer rate increases that is what everyone can agree on. WhatRead MoreI bring your attention to is the lack of accountability and financial controls: Why is Tewksbury BIG dig went over budget? Why nobody is looking at reducing healthcare costs and lavish Pension Plans? Why can't we vote electronically so everyone can have a voice in governing our town? Why can't we follow Andover and Lowell Business development model and attract new businesses to town? Our BOS is doing good work but they need a push now and then to stand up to status Quo, question expenses, think outside the box and build partnership with unions to rain in OT and benefits expenses. We are all in this together, we all live in this fine town and we have vested interest in making it an affordable place to live. Residents should make more of an effort to participate in the governing of the town, elected officials should look for others ways to bring in new revenue and cut cost.

I'm not sure our towns pensions are fully funded. We need to start cutting back now.

Will the last family to flee Tewksbury please turn out the lights. There are two really sad partsRead Moret o this story. First: these decisions are being made by a bunch of arrogant blow-ins who were either not around or not involved during all the Selissen sewer fiasco meetings, presentations and votes. They are conveniently rewriting history to suit their own desires. Secondly: the $100 million (not including interest) Selissen sewer fiasco resulted in only 2,500 homes getting connected (remember that 4,000 homes already had sewer). This equates to a cost of $40,000 per home not including interest. It is no wonder why the blow-ins want the 35% un-connected to do the Obama and spread the wealth.
