Niagara Gazette — Besides financial arrangements, the contract as approved by the town contains language granting the town access to Abraham on a professional level. The final paragraph of terms provides the board information through the county's attorney-client agreement.
Board members like Bax have argued previously the town, paying half of the bill, deserved such access to review data being gathered for any upcoming legal battle.
"Everything we asked for is there," Bax said.
A final aspect of the agreement provides for equalization of expense should Abraham's services not require the entire agreed amount. In the instance this happens, the contract states the two municipalities will end up paying the same amount.
In other news, the board confirmed it is interviewing eight prospective applicants for the vacant position on the board created by the retirement of Ernie Palmer last month.
The interviews, conducted in executive session Tuesday, could lead to a decision as quickly as the board's next meeting, set for 6:30 p.m. Monday at town hall, 1375 Ridge Road, Lewiston, officials said.Contact reporter Timothy Chipp at 282-2311, ext. 2251 or follow on Twitter @timchipp.
