    3. I'm with the above commenters; I can't believe our town officials are using Taxpayer funds to demolish this property. They're putting a lien on the property, big deal! How much more of OUR money are they going to throw down this black hole?

  3. Exactly right 4:12. The town should do whatever it takes to recover all the money lost fighting Bishop. They could make a great example out if him so maybe others will take the town seriously

  4. Yep, it's these varied and assorted rundown properties that are holding the town back from its next golden era. Great job by the town leaders to mask their years of ineptitude in fostering any real economic growth or instituting better fiscal management. They're succeeding in demonizing a few property owners and serving them up as red herrings to take the pressure off themselves for sticking the town deeper in the ditch year after year. The real delapidation has been occurring for decades now in the halls of municipal governance. What's next, the selectboard presenting a pinata of one of the offending property owners for the good citizens to wack away at and feel all better about themselves?

    1. Hm, are you blaming the entire Selectboard for the years and years of not doing anything? Seems to me that the Selectboard members who pushed through the demolition funds, and got serious about cleaning up the Town were only elected about three or four years ago. Some like the Chairman have been on there for over a decade, but not sure we can blame the ones who came on relatively recently for the sins of those who have been on the Selectboard for a decade or more or who used to be on the Selectboard.

  5. Not much town leaders can do in a state run by hacks.

  6. I remember watching this house burn. Bishop moved out a few weeks before-how ironic. I bet he had homeowners insurance and collected on that. A lien isn't going to do much unless Bishop sells his property that the lien is on. So it could be years.

  7. And so Anonymous 5:38,are you saying that Mr.Bishop is an arsonist? You watched this family's house burn? Losing everything that you hold dear is a terrible thing.I for one would be very careful about making claims like that.Slander is a crime as is arson.Just saying.
