Proposed vacant building ordinance sent back for review

A new ordinance aimed at cracking down on vacant, uncared-for buildings in town needs more work.

  1. The selectboard at their snail's pace finest yet again. There will be tens more derelict buildings in town as its economy unravels while these blind nitwits fixate on their symbolic fool's errand.

    What would you have them do, ignore public comment and pass it without revision?

    1. My friend, you are among the myopic ones who confuse endless flailing around for constructive action. How easily deceived you are - and that's exactly what the elected chair warmers count on year after unproductive year.

  3. If the selectboard spent more time trying to encourage a vibrant economy not based on taxpayer dole projects they would not have to worry so much about vacant buildings. The properties would have enough value that they would either be economically feasible for the owners to repair them, sell them or tear them down. Instead the town is trying to destroy the assets of some for the benefit of a few. Watch how this evolves. This town has done everything to protect the assets of a few while discouraging normal growth businesses that would produce a real economy not based on stealing from the taxpayers.

    1. And you, the lovable loser, must have been apoplectic, with no reason to write in defense of the elected losers until 2:06 posted. Now you can get back to that next rerun on TVLAND.

  5. Springfield is the sad victim of farcical liberalism run amok. Another folly to make the town's ever so gullible citizens think the selectboard is doing something. Next up in order of importance, I'm sure, will be the selectboard's mandate for transgender bathrooms.

  6. I've been trying for over a year to get local contractors to help with the renovations around my home, without success. I suppose if I told them I was building a Federally funded flophouse for junkies they'd be flocking to my door.
