The die is cast...
This was the answer to my request for any document reflecting theMashpee Wampanoag Tribe's agreement that the pre-mitigation planning monies would not be refundable by the Town, should the resort not become a reality.
Well, now, at least we know that the BOS was not asleep at the switch for more than just a couple months, and were not lulled into complacency by the mere verbal promises of the Tribal Chair. While it may be the custom of some native americans to work off a hand shake (although these native americans wanted a written IGA--go figure!), I am glad that the BOS will now ask for the agreement in writing. A bird in the hand is better than birds**t in the hand.
Thank you to the BOS for acting to protect the Town.
