I always see the village board meetings and most of the town board meetings on here except the ones that I want to hear the minutes for. It seems like whenever the board has a meeting that involves talk about job bids like the mowing and cleanup it is never on here. I really wish the town board meeting from April 21st was on here. Is there anyway you can post it for me? I want to hear what was said about the cemeteries. I can see Highland Park already looks dispicable but the st cyrils cemetery next to it already mowed and looks wonderful. Obviously whoever is mowing that one isn't mowing the ones that the town of alexandria owns. This is a important issue although most of you don't give a damn
I have missed no Village meetings for about 2 years. And I have uploaded all the audio to those meeting. I did however miss last weeks village meeting. The April 21st Town meeting that you speak of, I did go to and I do have the audio from that meeting including your concern about the cemetery mowing bids. That meeting lasted a record 2 hours.....unfortunately at this time I do not have the energy nor the desire to take the time to upload that audio. You do have the option to contact the town offices and request a copy of the written minutes from that meeting.....which is almost the next best thing to the audio.......
I know the company that was hired to do the job and it is not their fault the town waited until the grass was foot hight before awarding the bid. And has anyone taken into consideration for the weather we have had in the end of April and in May? You can't mow in rain or snow (and if you do, your nuts!)! Another thing, instead of looking and the "bad" things and take a moment to go see Tanner's Corners cemetary where it looks amazing! They took their time and cleaned up the stones very well, now revieling a civil war soldiers stone that was over taken by a lilac bush. Why judge these people for who they are and who they are related to and give this great company & family a chance!
That is not true tanners corners was cleaned up last year by the boy next door who had community service work to there. His name was Tanner so don't go giving credit where credit is not due. Not to mention I know the company too, and one of the brothers went into the town office and said he didn't even want to mow the cemeteries. The cleanup wasn't done right and the weedeating is hardly ever done when they mow the cemeteries. I wouldn't be suprised if the comment above was made by the company doing the work themselves.
The only other thing I am going to post about this is that creek bend is mowing the cemeteries and they have a bad habit in taking credit for things they don't do, in the past they have lied at town board meetings about work they said they did for another contractor when he had a break down a couple years ago and none of it was true, but yet he never got any credit for any of the services that he provided for the town of alexandria instead you have creek bend running around trying to get credit for things they don't do. No cleanup was done this year, all they did was mow up the leaves, not a damn thing was pulled out of the cemeteries and as far as mowing in the rain and snow, you don't mow in it you mow around it and if they didn't have time to do it then they just took on way to much work and that is the bottom line. I am spent on this subject now though. My job is done here!!!!
I wouldnt be suprised if that last comment wasnt made by the town supervisor.
