From yesterday’s Metrowest Daily News:
A former committee member is accusing her colleagues of colluding to ensure the town would build a new police station rather than fully explore renovation options, actions she said deceived town residents.
Nancy Vargas, a former member of the Municipal Facilities Committee, filed a complaint Dec. 3 with the state attorney general’s office alleging that town officials misused funds and violated the state Open Meeting Law while the committee was involved with the schematic design phase for improvements to the police station.
Vargas, who was appointed to the committee in 2008 and remained a member until it was dissolved in June 2010, claims that a “custom” of violations had developed on the committee between 2006 and 2009, including misrepresentation of a Town Meeting warrant article and collusion among members of the board, town staff and a selectman.
