Was it an honest mistake as Larry Adler stated in today's Observer Dispatch article:
Adler said the confusion had been “frustrating,” but that he believed any errors made were honest mistakes.or was the town board in such a rush to find a way to keep the plans out of the public eye that Town Attorney Gerald Green failed to do his homework and ill-advised the town board and employees? What made the town board and the town attorney think that any discussion where the spending of taxpayer dollars is involved should or could be done behind closed doors?
“I think it's a positive step, because it will bring more clarity to the process for all involved,” he said.
According to the OD article:
Business Park developer Larry Adler, who attended the meeting, said he was mulling whether to initiate such a review himself.Think hard, Uncle Larry. Should you do the right thing and correct "the honest mistake" or continue trying to "get one by us"?
“I'm just getting this letter today,” he said, adding that he would confer with others involved in the project before making a decision.
You decide...is this town board just a bunch of clowns or was this a carefully orchestrated plan to shanghai taxpayers leaving them to pick up the tab for infrastructure on private property owned by one of their "developer friends"?
For the record, here is the ...letter from the Department of State and ...here is Jerome Donovan's email to the town board.
