City holds off on VFW donation for poker machine license fees
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 8214 Cmmdr. Richard Haugh had originally sought a refund of the license fees. Haugh has said the fees were paid by the previous commander despite the fact that he made his intention known to remove the machines, which he viewed as an unsavory source of revenue for the post. Meanwhile, the post is in debt, Haugh has said, and is struggling to stay afloat.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Ward 3 Alderman Patrick Long proposed using the funds from the legislative fund, since he and other aldermen are also legislators and the funds haven’t been necessary to hire a representative in Concord.
He proposed tabling the proposal, which was approved 8-5.
