Wilton letter: Pay me now or pay me later
To the Editors:
Have you ever heard the phrase “Pay me now or pay me later?”
In my opinion, the renovation of the police department should be fully funded with the $16 million they are asking for to fund a building that the Wilton Police Department needs. Cutting the $2 million dollars for what the police department says they need will cost the taxpayers $4 to $5 million down the road.
Do I like higher taxes? No.
The Wilton Police Department does a fine job for the residents of Wilton and if they say they need a facility to do the job better I say we fund the full amount. Chief Lynch does a great job for the Town of Wilton, is highly respected by the men and women of the department, and if he says he needs something we should fund it.
