Story in today's Observer Dispatch:
"New Hartford school project back within cost estimates; Some aesthetics eliminated; other re-bid estimates also lower".We received many tips regarding the cost overrun that Mr. Nole was not willing to admit was a problem when we visited his office on July 7th. It's also been reported to us that since we posted our blog on July 22nd, there have been a lot of "nervous" school administrators walking the halls. Three weeks after our visit we read about the cost overrun in the newspaper...go figure!
One thing missing in the Observer Dispatch article is mention of the final plans for the Auditorium/Community Performing Arts Theatre that Mr. Nole told us would not look quite like it was represented to the voters.
Makes one wonder what else are they forgot to mention to the article? In fact, we have heard that there are more changes than they admitted to in the article.
We appreciate your tips; rest assured that we follow up on every one of them. Together, we can make a change!
