Dug Outs & Tennis Courts ~ Infrastructure Priorities?


"As the infrastructure ages, there becomes a point where you can't fix things, you have to replace them ... Our goal is to provide safe, clean schools for the children to attend."  ~~ Lou Bianchi, district architect & engineer.

"I ask the voters to carefully consider the needs of the district and the economics of this particular proposal." ~~ Scott Hoot, GCSD Superintendent of Finance.

SCATS ~~ It sounds like Don Nadolinski's replacement is Lou Bianchi. He's towing the same old district line of the past ...

Yes, safe and clean, and hopefully effective at teaching. But in this economic climate, one needs to make sure money is spent on things essential to education. Too bad we have to turn down the necessary in order to prevent the waste

To 11:26AM ~~ Then you were the two who attended the meeting. Looks like the three no votes from my house will cancel out your two yes votes ... with one to spare ;)

To 11:42AM ~~ Well said.

This is fiscal mismangement at its worst. How the hell can these two supposedly college educated finance people ask us to bond out for many, many years, the items listed on the sheet the district sent to my home???? It is plain stupid to finance doors, door hardware,lighting, thermostats and the like for 20 freakin years. 99% of the items listed should be coming from our annual school budgets NOT being financed for 20 freaking years.

And the fact that the "state" will re-imburse us???? Free money???????? Do these district mouthpieces think we are dumb? This money comes from our left pocket instead.

We need new baseball dugouts because?????? I think they just stuck those in there to force the sports booster parents out to vote for this.

I vote NO and I hope this thing goes down in flames.

The BOE is counting on the folks who will swallow hard and allow the waste in order to make the needed fixes. Too bad the BOE is bundling the trash with the needed so their cronies in the Chamber who own the construction businesses will continue to prosper on the backs of the taxpayers.

To 8:36PM ~~ Plus the school-of-choice folks owe them big time ;)

I been giving this Bond Issue some serious thought.

While them tennis courts seem a little iffy at first look the wife and I have talked on it, and we decided we have to vote for new Tennis Courts.

We're looking ahead, and our firstborn will soon be graduating from GCSD, not sure what year yet, but little Anna, well she ain't all that little, could make use of a Tennis Court to waddle around on and might even loose some weight.
