In January the town’s local delegation, including Senator Lou Raptakis, Patricia Morgan, Michael Chippendale, Robert Nardolillo, Jared Nunes, Sherry Roberts, Patricia Serpa, requested that Auditor General Dennis E. Hoyle conduct an investigation into the operation of the town’s sewer program and enterprise fund, which is running an annual deficit, according to town officials. Councilors Debra Bacon and Karen Carlson also sent their own letter in support of the delegation’s request."
