Who's paying for the $1,034,000 renovations to Skelos and Klein fields? If the Villagers are paying, we should not give any preference to Molloy College by adding more benefits to the original Skelos/Molloy/Village of RVC Agreement. Nobody at the Board meeting mention who the money is being paid to. They don't need to. I bet we all know who the money is going to C_M_R_N. Eng.... The same outfit that failed on the original Skelos Complex installation. The below article is from Patch March 7, 2011 regarding Tighe Field. "The Rockville Centre Soccer Club hosted its 40th anniversary celebration on Friday night at the St. Agnes Parish Center, and more than 100 residents shared dinner, drinks and laughs over the musical sounds of Jerry and the Newcomers. Overall fundraising numbers were not available, but all proceeds went towards the renovation of Tighe Field near Mill River." The village is paying someone??? $64,000 for Tighe Field renovations. Who's paying for this? the Residents or are the proceeds coming from the above fundraiser? It is a great tribute to the RVC Soccer Club fundraising activities in memory of Steve Tighe. The good use of that money should be promoted by the RVC Soccer Club

I was just sitting here minding my own business. I read the article again about the Village board recap. It just dawned on me the article says:"New bid for Klein Field, at a combined total cost of $1,034,100". I really shouldn't be surprised since the original bid to the non-existing bid that nobody new anything about was improved by Mayor Franny down to $1,034,100. Since nobody new except Mayor Franny, I bet he got the winning bidder on the proposal that was never put out to bid down from $2,500,000 from an unknown engineering firm C_ _ _ _ _ N. Now this could be a miss print by the Patch, but you never know with Mayor Franny. This just might be another bid that nobody knew anything about except you know who and awarded to you know who.... "SEQRA resolution for Skelos Field Bid and Molloy Agreement."
