New Bloomfield city council to meet for first time since police chief departed
NEW BLOOMFIELD —
Every second Thursday of the month New Bloomfield's mayor and Board of Alderman meet, it isn't out of the ordinary.
However, Thursday is the first time they are meeting publicly since the town's police chief - and the only officer - resigned. Some residents say that is something to talk about.
In an email written to KRCG 13, one person said several rumors were floating around the town about budget decisions regarding giving certain employees significant raises.
We spoke with resident Dorothy Colter over the phone. She was planning to attend the meeting Thursday to express her concerns about the budget and the town's lack of police.
She said she cannot get a clear answer from the board on rumors regarding budget decisions. She said she hoped the meeting would clarify some of those questions.
Colter also expressed crime has risen since the loss of the town's only officer. She said people's cars have been broken into.
As of 3:45 p.m. Thursday no one from city hall could be reached for comment.
