Budget Hearings Planned This Week

   
The Greece Central School District Bored With Education group is holding a Pre-Budget Hearing on Tuesday Nov. 2nd at 6:30PM in the BOE meeting room on Apollo's 3rd floor. Come hear Frank Oberg explain how he plans to spend your 'chump change' next year!

The Town of Greece is planning a Budget Hearing Thursday Nov. 4th at at 6PM at the Greece Town Hall. It will include annual estimates and assessment rolls for the special districts of the town, along with the adoption of the 2011 fee schedule. Come see how fast the closed, clubby & corrupt politicians feign democracy in a meeting that will happen at the speed of light!

Is a pre-budget hearing something like a pre-meeting-meeting?

What will they accomplish or hope to accomplish?

I would be 5 minutes late for the town meeting so might as well skip that one.

Why don't they just have those "meetings" together with the 2 boards at dinner and they can have fun while they pretend to be thinking and making important decisions. Maybe some "Frank's Chumps" who make less than $30,000 a year can cook and serve them and clean up afterward.

Do they really want input, or is this going through the motions?

To 2:50PM ~~ Do you expect a group that has NO GOALS to accomplish something!? You won't miss a thing by skipping a Town Board meeting. I've never learned a thing by attending one.

To 4:49PM ~~ Don't talk about Oberg's spouses like that!!

To 5:13PM ~~ This is going through the motions ... or what I call faux transparency ;)

It's a good thing they don't have to budget for any new raises for the teachers. Oops, forgot that they have to budget for their increase medical costs at their current rates.

To 10:17AM ~~ The Town of Greece has conveniently "forgotten" to post this important meeting. It was posted on the Greece Post website on Oct. 20th. Here's the link:
