I would have hoped that after 20 years in office, Mr. Feiner would have gained some knowledge of county, state and federal law, but apparently he continues to violate the law with these illegal actions, costing taxpayers millions in legal fees defending him. View Comment
It amazing how such an "open government" is so closed when they have a project that they want to force through. Even more amazing is how they can have a resolution prepared that this project has no negative impact.
Thanks Hal for trying to defend us taxpayers that don't have the legal experience and financial ability to fight the Town. And kudos to the Scarsdale Inquirer as well.
I hope the the Town Board realizes that they need to do more due diligence regarding this project. There are still many serious questions that remain unanswered. In trying to recover some short term revenue, is the Board exposing taxpayers to additional infrastructure costs, environmental cleanup costs and potential lawsuits that far exceed the potential revenue? All this additional liability to taxpayers for a facility that is designed for sports. Aren't our priorities wrong, shouldn't we be looking for things that better educate our children in science, math, etc? View Comment
Well said Hal. And why we are at it, who is going to pay for all the infrastructure improvements required. Are we going to be on the hook for a $1M in road widening and traffic signal costs? I haven't seen that addressed anywhere in the lease. View Comment
I'm glad that Elmsford is looking to keep non-residents out, I for on, however, don't find the re-registration process either friendly or convenient. It took me over 1 hour to re-register my children not counting the 1 or 2 hours it took me to put together all of the required documents. It seems to me that in this age of computers and massive databases, I sure a school district of less than a 1000 students could easily find a way to identify non-resident student without this inconvenience. I'm sure there are not a lot of parents trying to get an Elmsford education. View Comment
The statistics also seem to show that while third graders in all districts seem to start at similar proficiency levels as they progress through the grades, Edgemont students maintain or improve their proficiency while the Greenburgh and Elmsford students decrease. Is it because good students leave Elmsford and Greenburgh and not Edgemont or is their something wrong with the teaching? I don't know, but I do think parents may need to be able to choose their district. Our taxes are the same, but our school results aren't. View Comment
