SPEACH TO BE GIVEN, 2-3 Febuary 2015; By Charles Arthur Soule

1 Jul

As you know; I am apposed to consolidation (CONNECTS-IT) of Lewiston and Auburn, Maine.

But, I WILL NOT STANDBY; and, watch the process of consolidation be stiffen – dictionary.com meaning (to be suddenly tense, rigid, or taut, as in bracing oneself for or drawing back from shock, fear, or displeasure ) by inaction of bureaucrats, business interest or non-participation by the Public.

So, therefore; I am here to night to ask that the consolidation schedule; if needed and asked for be allowed to be lengthened as to its scheduled completion date.

Completion date is scheduled for 11 / 2015.

Secondly, I have suggested; certain, input into the new charter configuration.

1.  All personnel of both cities will be expended with by means of attrition; and / or retirement.  Which may take some time to conclude and an overlap of offices is conducive to; orderly transition.

I WOULD HOPE THAT THE JOINT CONSOLIDATION COMMITTEE WOULD RATHER SEE AN EASING INTO THE CONSOLIDATION PROCESS; RATHER, THAN AN ABRUPT, FIRING OR DISMISSING OF VALUABLE AUBURN / LEWISTON CITY PERSONNEL.

This, I hope; will ensure the active participation of the Twin Cities; best and the brightest. As help is needed to several departments;

1.  Both Cities Administrative Departments; on a rotating scheduled, to coincide with meeting in alternating cities of Auburn and Lewiston, Maine; to typed minutes of the meeting and produced for the Joint Cities Consolidation Committee.   And, by city that last meeting was scheduled in.

2.  Members of both Lewiston and Auburn Departments Head shall meet with the Joint Cities Consolidation Committee at least once a MONTH for discussions.

3.  Once a month; a status report will be given to each city at it’s regular seating of it’s City Council Meeting, by the Joint Cities Consolidation Committee Chairperson or designated representative.

4.  All Cities Departments (Auburn and Lewiston) shall provide a NEGATIVE AND / OR POSITIVE; OVERVIEW OF  REASONING; on Consolidation.
