To The Daily Sun,
The letter in Saturday's edition from Dennis Comeau, representing the Gilmanton Fireman's Organization was very well done and brought up some important points concerning the solicitation ordinance proposed by the Gilmanton selectmen.
Why are they continuing to target the Fire Department? Has anyone actually complained about the boot drive activity as explained in this letter? How will this ordinance impact other groups who raise money?
I would like to add to that: Shouldn't the selectmen and the town administrator have more important, and perhaps positive, issues on which to expend their time and energy. Surely there are issues that impact our entire community not something that is relevant to only a few.
As a matter of fact, a good portion of the funds collected will be donated back to the town in the form of defibrillators for several groups. The Fireman's Association will be making those presentations later this month.
Mr. Comeau also mentioned the "incredibly inconvenient" time for the public hearing which is also not even posted on the town website. That hearing is on Thursday Nov., 6 at the Town Hall at 5 p.m. If you are concerned about any or all of these issues, please plan to attend.
