MoBo Code of conduct reflects NH state law at a different govt. level ... required due to human nature (not all humans)!

If any practical examples are needed, as real time examples, be sure to review the case where the T A and closet friends tried a Planning Board purge. Some may think that is how the game should be played, but most do not want that behavior for Moultonboro.

Of course the Library is open. They are not really part of the Town in their minds!

That was an unnecessary swipe at the Library. If the town hall as run as well as the library, we would all have something to be proud of...

Swipe or not, the library considers itself a separate entity....this is fact.

I didn't take the comment referenced as a shot as being that at all. If it seems that the library marches to it's own drummer it is because it is true and that's a good thing in my opinion.
The library is in fact a separate entity from the town by statute. Employees are not town employees, the trustees are the governing body and only they can hire and fire and expend funds. My only issue as a selectman with the library is that the grounds are shared with the town complex and there have been issues with the town hall being closed due to snow but the library has remained open making it a challenge for the DPW. There are opportunities I think for all three town entities to work better together and learn from each other as well.

Thank you Blogger, the Library is a separate entity from the Town and is governed by a Board of Trustees. Anon please have the facts before you judge!

The library, also provides free, good speed, WiFi! Not talking about the computers they provide. You can use your own device (laptop, tablet, etc.)and sit in a comfortable chair and use broadband.

Now, if the library would only allow drinks!
