What would you prefer to spend the money on? Illegal alien work sites. Has it ever occurred to anyone who opposes the rink that one day the debt to the taxpayers will be repaid, and there will remain a consistent revenue stream for the town. Unlike so many other projects the town takes on.

If your concern is for consistent revenue stream, then build it in Wyandanch. Dix Hills does not have such a need. Their tax payers are doing quite well.

this rink is a big mistake, it is a shithole of a worksite even for one without the public being bused thru the middle of. The town is unable to efficeintly fix a pothole! who gives these idiots millions to piss away on a project ladened with payoffs and budget blowing mistakes! These types of projects should never be allowed.
