Time for park board to find other options

We take little joy in having had to oppose this referendum. If the park board had been doing its job we would not have had to oppose this. The park board and the media have not been truthful to the taxpayers about the cost of this proposed bond issue. It would have been $100 per year for a taxpayer with a $300,000 home not the $36 they kept talking about. This cost factor was very important to some taxpayers.

There is no doubt that our park facilities need some improvements. Hopefully we will now hear about the many alternatives for these improvements and their cost. What would it cost to partner with some of the many school facilities we have in AH?

These facilities are only used a small part of the time. How much could be done with spending -- say -- $3 million or so on each of the facilities? What type of consolidation of facilities would work? We hope the park board takes a de nova look at all their options and gets plenty of input from the taxpayers.

Thanks to the many letters to the editor, telephone and emails from members, attendance and speaking at all the public meetings and contribution toward a full-page ad appearing in the local media our members were able to get the word out to the taxpayers who voted against this ill conceived proposal.
