Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates Denied Information

Delegates override commissioners in budget battle

    By Patrick Cassidypcassidy@capecodonline.comJune 02, 2014

BARNSTABLE — The Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates got the last word in a dust-up over a $74,000 gap between its budget and a spending plan proposed by county commissioners.

During a special meeting on Friday the assembly voted 73.78 percent to 23.49 percent to override a vote taken two days earlier by the three commissioners that would have restored the funding, which the assembly had previously voted to eliminate. The 15-member assembly is the legislative branch of Cape Cod's regional government, and each member controls a portion of the vote based on his or her town's population.

The delegate from Orleans, who controls 2.73 percent of the vote, was not present at the meeting. [truncated due to possible copyright]   click on link to keep reading :
