RTM Resolution Criticizing Camillo, BET Appropriation Fails

A Sense of the Meeting Resolution criticizing First Selectman Fred Camillo and the Board of Estimate and Taxation for actions taken during the coronavirus pandemic failed to receive overwhelming support during the RTM’s meeting on Monday night, as it was defeated by a vote of 75 in favor, 138 against, with 16 abstentions. Last month, Camillo appropriated $100,000 to the Greenwich United Way as part of the town’s newly-formed COVID-19 Community Relief Fund. Due to the emergency situation and the need to act quickly on getting people help, the BET approved the funds, and Camillo did not seek RTM approval as is stated in the town charter.
