Funding for Nashua Public Works Michael Kors Marina Drawstring Tote positions under scrutiny as budget goes before Michael Kors Jet Set Optic White
The proposed budgets for the Public Services and Public Works departments took center stage Wednesday. The Budget Review Committee combed the 2014 proposals for both, occasionally receiving answers and in other cases expounding on certain current projects, such as the ongoing Main Street sidewalk reconstruction.
Before the Public Works budget was heard, committee members listened to an update on the extensive spate of spring vandalism at Woodlawn Cemetery, one of five city cemeteries on Wednesday's agenda under Public Services departments.
Still not satisfied, Cookson appealed to Chairman Brian McCarthy.
The subject was the city's website, which Cookson suggested could be geared more toward keeping the public better informed of details of issues and ongoing projects.
Sorenson said he didn't know exactly how much time, adding that the individual's responsibilities vary and can involve a number of different tasks during the day.
"That's not true," Lozeau responded. "He was going to retire three times, and twice he changed his mind."
Mayor Donnalee Lozeau told Deane that several city departments once had their own operations manager, but most of those posts have been eliminated and revised as other positions. That process, Lozeau said, works because the net result is that no new posts are added.
Deane asked Lozeau about one former operations manager, whom Deane claimed was "asked to retire."
NASHUA Occasional disagreements over whether certain proposed Public Works positions are new or replacements and a lengthy back and forth on the wisdom of adding a citizens' services coordinator to the department dominated Wednesday night's installment of the city budget review process.

Later, Alderman at Large Mark Cookson sparred with Lozeau, accusing her of "cutting off discussion because you're no longer interested."
"I have a series of questions the mayor would rather answer later," Cookson said. "How can I get them answered now?"
Alderman at Large David Deane, earlier a vocal critic of a proposal that would hike by about $18,000 a year the retirement pension for newly appointed Public Works Operations Manager Andy Patrician, focused more on the duties that come with the position.
He asked Public Works Director Lisa Fauteux and Streets Superintendent Roy Sorenson, for instance, how much time an operations manager spends on the street, then asked for an explanation of how the citizens services coordinator post came about.
"What I'm hearing is we have some work to do to update the website to keep constituents better informed," McCarthy responded, suggesting that discussion move on.

While police continue to search for the vandals, who in mid March toppled headstones and the more historic "tablets" on an overnight tear, leaving many damaged, cemetery representatives went over the cost of the vandalism.
"I think we've done a pretty good job with efficiencies and with the projects we've done," Lozeau said. "We haven't done anything we can't justify."
