Council rules and the fiscal policy

So let me get this straight.
Gary Foster, Town Council chair, sees obvious defeat of Upham's overblown fiscal policy, so now he's going to completely bypass any consideration for the public's will and press for a "council rule." The "council rule" can be put into place by just the town council, while the original proposal calls for a charter amendment that requires approval by a majority of voters.
The majority has made it clear they believe the fiscal policy as it stands now would be detrimental to Gray.
My only hope is that Foster, et al, will vastly revamp the policy before they try to force it upon our hardworking town employees.This appears to be another example of the council's autocracy and complete disregard for what is wanted by the majority of Gray's citizens.
