Selectmen discussed addressing such an issue when they review their bylaws.
But Lyons became angry, saying he was tired of discussing certain matters in nonpublic session and then being asked to vote on something different than was discussed earlier.
“What’s going to trump bylaws is state law,” he said, referring to the Right-to-Know Law. “I am frustrated with the lack of transparency in this process. ... We need to clean up our act.”
Keller defended his reputation, insisting he never acted out of line.
“I said, ‘No comment. It’s against the law.”’
After the board moved on to other issues, selectmen were joking with each other — including whether someone had to be dead to have a town building named after them.
