Very nice job by the First Selectman and his whole crew for presenting this very basic but essential bare bones no frills budget. Should get an overwhelming majority YES vote, as is. I'd vote that they all get pay raises as a thank you perk for saving the town and tax payers so much money on the other end. Thank you again for a fine job that is appreciated buy all Madison residents.
