FALLS VILLAGE — Board of Finance member Louis G. Timolat is asking for transparency when it comes to the town’s share of paying the Region 1 superintendent. During a board meeting Monday, he said he would like a cost breakdown put on an information sheet for the budget town meeting next Tuesday.
Timolat floated the idea of the town looking at the concept of hiring its own parttime superintendent. He said he has heard of examples of systems the size of Falls Village paying between $20,000 and $24,000 for such a parttime position.
“We wouldn’t have the bureaucratic nightmare and we’d have someone to fight for us,” Timolat said. “We’d still be a part of Region 1, entitled to all its offerings.”
