Wasting Money

The town has money to throw away.

Here's another example of your tax dollars at work.  Someone lit the field level lights at Penders Field last night.  There was no event at the field.  However the lights remained on all night.  I can verify that because when they are on, they shine brightly in our bedroom.  Who is responsible for making sure they are turned off or is that person contributing an extra $500 to the town to hold a non-event? I have my doubts about that being true.

At least you don't need a night light! Pleasant dreams Hal!

I hope you are still making light of this (pardon the pun) when you pay your taxes next year. And may I thank all the taxpayers of our fair hamlet for providing my night light at their expense.

They kept the lights on because they were measuring how much the $1.2 Million artificial turf shrinks when it gets cold.
