So some people have this dream to build a major football/baseball stadium at the existing Broadway Field park. They were tooting how it waz gonna be completely privately funded and no tax dollars. Only now the City of Seaside and the local school district are giving hundreds of thousands to this thing (wherz that $$$, tax dollars - us).
So they go ahead and rip up the old existing fields and light poles. Then they gotta stop because of an endangered species bird nest on one of the poles. Now I read in the Seaside-Sun that they are 270,000 over budget because the bids came in higher than expected! Hello - that's like over 25% more than they expected for the whole project. The plan now is not to do lighting. They don't even have the money for bleachers. Who's gonna pay for this - us again. We don't even have a permanent location for a food-bank in this town yet we are building million dollar fields???
Who ever planned this fiasco should be repremanded or even forced to pay the difference themselves! Any one else agree with me on this?
Oh yeah - the boys will be using this for baseball and football, guess the girls are stuck playing softball in the marshland still. I think I only got to watch one game at home because the field was always flooded.
Oh yeah yeah - Next time the schools ask for a bond I'm voting no. If they need the money so badly how can they support this joke? I didn't vote yes to let them give the money away.
