Ongoing Ills @A-PAC Are Walts' Legacy To GCSD

Fixing sightlines to cost almost $500,000 but ongoing lawsuits, budget worries might prevent work in near term

"There are so many things we are looking at now, it's hard to know where or if that fits into our budget until we get more into the process," he said, adding that possible cuts in state education aid and other economic factors may mean the board will be reluctant to spend the money. "One of the questions will be can we afford to do it or afford not to do it this year?"


SCATS ~~ So let me get this straight. The Circus Posse Prez. worries about economic factors when "the fix" hits GCSD's State Aid cache, but will consider maxing the income limits on senior exemptions when it's yours & my wallet? Hmmm ...

Let me see if I understand, The Board of Ed hired somebody claiming to be an archetect to design a palatial suditorium.

The so called archetect screwed up.
The Board paid the archetect for screwing up. Um did the idea of inspecting the auditorium before cutting the check occurr to anyone on the Board?

It then only took the Board of Dullards how long to learn some seats have no view of the stage? Did they think those seats were put there for blind people?

Now, the Board of Dullards wants to drop another $500,000 to fix the so called archetect's screwup. The same dullards employ how many attorneys?

Why in hell isn't GCSD suing the archetect and recovering costs from the archetects Error & Omission insurance?

Do the Boardmembers have a glimmer of a clue?

To 12:17AM ~~ Actually there is a lawsuit but I don't believe it includes the sightline issue. It has more to do with the missing roof clips that made the palatial space unsafe in moderate winds.

So let's stop talking in generalities. It is up to the customer to accept both the design and its implementation. What is the name of the person who is responsible for that? It isn't Steve Walts (though it is, in a figurative sense).

Who was "clerk of the works"?
Who was responsible for performing the "punch list"?
Who has quietly "retired"?

And who is laughing at our stupidity for quietly accepting the unacceptable yet again?

Is there a prize?
Please God, don't let the prize be tickets to APAC.

To 1:19PM ~~ Well you get to choose your prize. If you don't want the tickets, how about the opportunity to check wind speeds from atop the roof? ;)
