An article on the front page of the Amherst Bee reveals that the Town has paid its vendors late and officials are concerned about penalties.
The Town of Amherst is late paying 46 bills including a $678,320 payment to Independent health. The reason for the late payment is that Mohan wanted to personally sign all of the checks.
Some of the larger bills paid late or still have not been paid include a $215,760 payment to National Grid.
I never heard of a utility company waiving a late fee.
But don't worry "Mohan said he will personally pay any penalty assessed the town due to his signing the checks."
