What is the Village Board and Mayor thinking with an economic development coordinator living in Texas? How will she have a finger on the pulse of the village? Who will watch to see that she is earning the $70,000 per year she will get paid (with travel expenses picked up by the village)? Where will the supervision come from? I think this is a horrendous use of my tax dollars. Some kind of a shady deal here!!! Then they are raising our utility taxes to pay for a downtown. Seems that the current Board is not thinking much of fiscal restraint.

Many times, this board is not thinking. They punched holes in the parking lot for the French Market (wonder how that will work out when it freezes and cracks, will need repair), the Concerts cost money in overtime, will we see those costs come out? Too much wreckless spending.

Look in yesterdays Patriot. There's a breakdown on the concerts listed. I'm not buying the "estimated" attendance. It's way too low for the Cheap Trick concert. I'd like to know where they got those figures from since they don't count people at the gates.
