Green Road Work Will Proceed Despite Last Minute Objections

Uncharted territory at Rothesay Town Council last night.  
After approving a motion to accept a contract for construction on Green Road, it was rescinded and a concerned resident was allowed to speak.

Mayor Bill Bishop then called for a recess where they all left the room to discuss it.

He says some councillors felt they should at least address the concerns of the citizens but they had already voted on awarding the contract so it became a legal issue.

The town had to decide on the Green Road project during last night's meeting because a tender has been awarded   In the end, they did approve it a second time.  

Some residents oppose the inclusion of sidewalks they don't think are needed and will require the removal of trees and hedges from their properties.
