The evening festivities begin with a Public Hearing on paid parking scheduled to begin at 6PM. Opposition that had been slowly building is reaching a crescendo with firm resistance now be offered by the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce.
Almost everyone concedes that the issue at least for this year is dead in the water. The only question remaining is how many warm bodies will have to be trimmed from the cities work force. Looks like the cities unions will have to take a long look in the mirror and decide if they represent the interests of the older and higher paid work force or the entire workforce including the newest and lesser paid workers. Changes are coming and may I suggest the Public Works Dept with three Forman in charge of 3 workers would be a logical place to start. But remember we our talking about the cities biggest fuckup here, DPW Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco and the words logic and Scirocco aren’t really heard in the same sentence very often.
Speaking of Mr Scirocco the Council has grown very weary of his constant fuck-up’s and answers will be demanded over his blatant and criminal mishandling of desperately needed City revenue that is disappearing down a fiscal black hole in his dept or should I say back door and I’m not taking six-pack money.
