Abrupt Saratoga Town Council meeting shrouded in mystery

In Saratoga, the reasons behind last night’s abbreviated council meeting remain a mystery. While some speculate it was related to ongoing questions surrounding the town’s financial affairs, one councilman told Bigfoot 99 that a computer had been confiscated from town hall by outside authorities.

Whatever the reason, normal procedures were scrubbed from the agenda and the meeting was gaveled to a close in less than three minutes.

After adjourning, the mayor and other officials disappeared behind closed doors without answering questions. Emma Diercks reports.
