The next regular meeting of the City Council will be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2009.



  1. “No single member or group of members is authorized to engage in discussions or negotiations on matters that affect the interests of the City of Rye, without the knowledge of all members, and the assent by vote of a majority of its members…”

    C’mon Joe – don’t you know your place here? Don’t you know The Gang of Steve and their embattled highly compensated legal “counselor” are running the joint as they see fit? It’s apparently their birth right.

    A “City Manager” run government? Phooey they say. They reserve the right to meddle and cover-up and squander buckets of our tax dollars in fatuous litigation and then – how shall we say it – be “less than entirely candid” as to their actual motives and actions?

    Joe you’re about to be accused of having a suspicious mind, a litigious streak, a quest for personal glory, a bad attitude and maybe even a bad haircut every now and then.

    Don’t take their crap for a minute.
