Features Of Proposed Legislation Subject Of Conflicting- Opinions; Doubt Use This Year Conflicting opinions have been expressed by borough residents today regarding the proposed Board of Finance bill drawn up by Borough Attorney Martin L. Calnc and approved by the committee appointed to study such a bill, which will be presented to the General Asxcrobly next week. Some opposition is voiced concerning the abolishment of the annual freemen's meeting- and th« manner in which members of the proposed board will be selected. Although it has been, pointed out the bill Is believed to be more advantageous to residents as each agency of the b'otough, any other agency or individual persons may submit to the Finance Board a detailed statement of estimated expense on any subject, many residents feel they will lose a so-called •power" if the freemen's meetings are eliminated. There arc just it* many others, however, -who feel that the freemen's meeting is ardcaic, that Naugatuck has out- flrown it. The bill provides members bo appointed to the board by the warden with the consent of the burgesses, but some residents believe the Finance Board members nh'ould b« elected. Officials todiy said it Is unllkelv the legislation can be passed in time tor u*c in the current Hsrou year. The bill will be introduced to t>h« General Assembly next week, and will be assigned to committee, lossibly the boroughs and cities or finance. Hearings will be conducted on he bill, and the committee w(ll.r»- jort favorably or unfavorably IP ho General Assembly. If tht bill passes the General Assembly with referendum clause, it wilt tn«^ •cturn tto the borough for a voi» if the freemen, who will make the final decision.
