Nashua aldermen clamp down on mayor’s changes to contracts
The ordinance was written after some aldermen were not informed that a rebranding contract was terminated early. It was newly adopted on Tuesday.
Lozeau stressed that she is working with the city’s Information Technology Department to make the contracts even more visible on the city’s website.
Currently, all approved contracts are posted on the city’s website; efforts are being made to make the documents even easier to navigate, according to Lozeau. In addition, staff is attempting to find a way to automatically alert aldermen when something new is posted to the contracts, she said.
Jeff Kleiner of Courtland Street voiced support for the ordinance, encouraging the board to override the mayor’s veto.
Alderman Richard Dowd, who does not support the ordinance, said city officials should have faith in the corner office. The ordinance, according to Dowd, implies that the board does not trust the administration.
“I never viewed this as punitive ... I look at this as expectation-setting,” said Alderman Ken Siegel, who co-sponsored the ordinance.
