Should Town Board Members Have Posted Office Hours?


Town of Evans By Appointment OnlyYou are driving to the Evans Town Hall. You see a lemonade stand. You are thirsty so you stop to get a cup. There is a table, a pitcher of lemonade, cups, and a dollar a cup sign but no one is working behind the table. You see a toddler in a sandbox. You walk over and ask about getting a cup of lemonade. The toddler tells you that you need an appointment! You think to yourself that this is no way to run a business.

You get back in your vehicle and head over to the Evans Town Hall.

Once inside the town hall, there is no supervisor. She resigned a half year ago. There is no one in the councilperson’s office. You are wondering why the town hall is run like that lemonade stand. You finally find someone to talk to. You are told you’ll need to make an appointment!

At any other business in Evans, you would be able to find an owner or a manager. How do you properly manage a town government with a $20 million budget when the “managers” are rarely in the town hall? By law, they do not have to show up for work. They do submit their projected work hours which are used to calculate their pension. They are required to work those hours.

The Democrats propose having office hours for the town board members while Republicans would rather have a work from home policy.

Elon Musk has pushed against work-from-home mandates which were instituted by many companies during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. In June 2022, he said that “remote work is no longer acceptable,” and started requiring Tesla workers to spend a minimum of 40 hours per week in the office.May 17, 2023

Businesses and governments fail when managers don’t show up at the office.

The liberties of people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. – Patrick Henry



Vladimir Lenin 100wWhy should freedom of speech and freedom of the press be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what it believes to right allow itself to be criticized? It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government?
