Naugatuck Daily News (Newspaper) - March 16, 1960, Naugatuck, Connecticut Weather increasing cloudiness and Little change in temperature today. Cloudy and not so cold tonight with Snow beginning late probably mixed with sleet or rain toward morning. Rain Snow or sleet ending tomorrow afternoon with Little change in temperature Midnight 22 3 ., 18 6 ., 17 9 28 noon 36. Let s reword Merit the solid citizens of Naugatuck will Convene tonight ii their High school to probe for flaws in the budget recommended by the Board of finance i or the fiscal year 1900-01. The major flaws As to. Sec Thorn arc the result of proper Liaison among the several administrative hoards who would their problems upon the shoulders of the Board of finance without proper interpretation or logical explanation this is particularly True with reference to the principal attraction of tonight s Public hearing the school Dot. Bud get but the problem is enlarged by the unrealistic propos als of the Board of fire commissioners the Board of police commissioners and some other department Heads. For the most part and with some major exceptions the finance Board Lias again demonstrated signs of wizardry by effecting some order from the Pic in lie sky chaos of realistic budgetary proposals reaching the staggering and ridiculous figure of higher than the voted last year. Tin Borough agencies wanted they seemingly ignored or shunned the proper responsibilities of office by recklessly accepting proposals to build up expenditures and gleefully shunting them along to lie Board of finance. The budget recommended by the finance Busard is Only higher than last years and it represents a 1 1-2 Mills tax increase to 311- 2 Mills for the inside District and a Mills increase to 30 1-2 Mills for the outside District. Another step in the right direction toward elimination of District differentials. It s a tightly drawn budget that leaves Little evidence of Opportunity of reduction. Well be surprised if it is not in creased presumably it will have to be. It is noteworthy that from the enlargements requested the finance Board recommends increases Over last year of for the school dept. For Public safety 300 i or health and sanitation for Public works. Reduced from last year Are general administration Public welfare and special appropriations less the general administration budget is less than last year. It could be further reduced with the elimination of the 100 per cent pay raise provided for burgesses from monthly to this Bonus should be deferred at least in til burgesses Are elected currently they Are appointed by party members of their wards. The finance Board has also indulged itself in a bit of unpalatable Buck passing. We refer to the recommendation of a pay raise for All Borough employees a proposal that risks the impossible the imposition of a Par value on Al a orcs of employees from top to Bottom. Naugatuck is not a poverty stricken Community. Its individual and Fahily incomes rank Well above average in Connecticut anal i new reasonable pay increases have been the lot of the average resident and municipal employees Merit recognition accordingly. Naugatuck can afford to remunerate its capable and Loyal employees on a Pur with com parable services i comparable communities. The several boards Eon id help their causes by submitting reasonable thoughtful salary schedules which they have not done. And let s not try to deceive ourselves in the Guise of Economy or convenience that All Borough employees fall with in a single classification or category. We Are faced with a problem in i lie education depart ment that must be treated apart and that cannot be resolved with of reason and descent to pointless argument in personalities. There Are reactions of both Shock and sympathy to the teachers Feague request i or an average salary increase of in the new budget. They Range from to to hear cries of support and of too coupled with demands i or publication of the listing of salaries paid or Lubo. Paid individual teachers. We Are still unconvinced it this Point thai the latter procedure would Aid the cause of understanding. But we Are confused by the report that the. Scale proposed in the school department budget does not have the support of the school Board and would to subject to modification. Is that a reasonable Structure of budget presentation is is fair to the finance Board or to the taxpayers is it unreasonable to propose that a closer Liaison be effected Between school Hoard find finance Board for a Posi Tive delineation of the requirements of the Borough s major budget operation if the Issue is teacher salaries and it appears to be could there not be established an outline of values and pay Scales teacher by teacher not exclusively by measure of de Grees or years or c. E. A. Evaluations but on the basis of measured and recognized value to the Naugatuck school sys tem the c. E. A. Will withdraw our citation for this but we daresay some of our teachers Are Worth More than they la Ever demand and be. A. Or the a. F. To would demand for others More than they Ever could be Worth. We recommend payment of full value to other Borough full value received. The pro b lems attendant to recruiting qualified teachers Are leading to Price competitions Between towns and superintend cuts. Thus the emphasis must be on raising starting salaries along with the requirements and adjustments of tenure. We want the Best available and we must be prepared to pay for them. But let s set value for value and shun the tenure riders. It is rather late in the season to broach the subject of a joint committee of the Board of education and tote Board of finance to work out a Long Range solution. It is also rather absurd to strive for an average pay increase for teach ers As against across the Board for other Borough employees within the confines of moderate tax adjustment but out of the heat generated by controversy Over to night s budget hearing there might be developed a Merit plan for local teachers that would alleviate future budget prob lems. The two boards most concerned should Endeavor to reach agreement on that Point before another budget dead line Rolls around. Their efforts in that direction could have favourable Imp met on other department pay Scales for Merit perhaps with a guarantee of such action and some amendment of that uninspiring across the Bofird pay propos Al All sides to tonight s controversy will look backward with less animosity Ami Forward with More Confidence to a generally improved budget condition.
