REFRESH YOUR MEMORY>> This was way back in Feb 2010. AFTER a closed Door Meeting about the land negotiations. The state money will not fully fund the construction of the park. WARNING this is a Budget Buster.
If the City can find 50,000 for new park operations then it can find money to pay the Sports Teams not to sell fireworks.
If the city can find 50,000.00 to spend it should be spent to retire the Loan Mr. Schwab never intended to pay back the RDA.
If the city has 50,000.00 a year in its budget that is free to spend some where else how about an after school music program for Jr, and Sr High School students.
If the city has 50,000.00 a year in its budget to spend how about finishing up the base of Blue Mt Park, or the Dog Park... Or at least get the fence around the dog park and some doggie doo trash cans... Dogs don't mind a natural park setting.
If the city has 50,000.00 a year it could be used to support the up keep of the CJUSD fields we use as parks after school hours.
