Important Thalatta Estate feasibility meeting set for this Thursday. I encourage the village staff and council to get the feasibility study online for taxpayer review in advance of this meeting

There is an important meeting for all to view this Thursday, March 29, 2012, regarding the expenditure of millions of village tax dollars out of reserve savings up front as well as the potential for addition long term debt. It would be an understatement to say that this is a very important meeting.  This meeting is so important that the business cannot wait to be taken up at a regularly scheduled council meeting; the presentation is being made at this special meeting. Bottom line is that you will be information deprived at the following regular council meeting if you do not take in the information presented Thursday.  "Know before you go."

Will this current Village Council preserve free bay front access?  That decision is not yet clear.

Will Thalatta Estate remain a park or will it be a "park" in the technical sense, but a commercial pay for use/access event site in reality.

Do promises and commitments made in the past have any meaning?  The documents will be telling in regarding to the "feasibility" (or excuses) to convert the park from ourselves and our youth and place it out to the highest bidder.

 I have one important concern and that is access to the important documents.  The agenda and more importantly, the supporting documents such as the feasibility study, should be placed online no later than this Monday, March 26.  This would allow proper study of the feasibility study by the interested public in advance which is important due to the fact that the Thalatta project is a very contentious and speculative project.

  1. What part of bad idea are the council members unfamiliar with? No matter how much perfume they put on this pig, its still a pig.
