Letter: What is Falmouth hiding?

The reason I have used the Freedom of Access Act to gather facts is because of tips I received from Falmouth citizens about continuous waste of tax dollars. Can anyone reading this think of any institution that writes two checks totaling nearly $38,000 without anything in the file folder except a paid invoice? Falmouth paid this money for a total of 13 crosswalks on Route 1 and around the schools that have worn off the pavement. Not a contract copy, not a bid document, not an OEM document, not a warranty document could be found. What happened to those documents? Why were they lost or destroyed? Why wouldn’t Town Manager Nathan Poore when he “discovered” these facts ask the vendor for copies of their contracts? What, if anything, is being hidden by these tactics? What else are we wasting our tax dollars on?
