I agree with everybody as far as the restaurant. You won’t need to boycott because it will never get that many people. There are way too many restaurants within a three mile distance that have so many specials they won’t be able to compete. Remember Buckmans has the golfers. I agree they are spending too much of our money too fast. I also said once to board members that a lot of people will have trouble paying so much, I was told “ then they shouldn’t be living here” really sympathetic to our community. They are rushing to take the grass out so we will qualify for the rebate, but have they weighed the odds with everything else they are doing? Repairing the common walls, grass, parking lot restaurant, sound system in the theatre, etc, sure sounds like a lot to me all at once.
Also I agree with Liz that we have a lot of qualified finance people here, but did they retire to work 30-40 hours a week. They need to learn to delegate.
People also need to remember a few of these board members were never elected. Twice at least they didn’t have an election because of co-vid and the remnants of it. These people put their names in no one else went to the club to submit their name and poof they are on the board. These people are spending the money like a child in a toy store told he can have everything he wants. They have no regard for the spending or else they just don’t care. The parking lot as Liz said is fine I agree we need big stop signs because I have seen too many near misses but we also need a big one way sign and how about a crosswalk from Independence to the parking lot. Too me these things are more important for our seniors safety.Maybe they are spending like it’s their money, some of them might be very extravagant with their money but this isn’t just theirs, it belongs to all of us and I for one care about the people who have lost a spouse, get some food from the food banks and would like to live in the home they have lived in for twenty years. We need a board with financial smarts as well as a heart. This is just my opinion.
