Wait minute fellers…where’s the picture of the bugler (the City) that comes and steals your down payment (land banking & purchasing property) before you can even buy that Audi?

Bill-

Man behind Mr. Presta already owns an Audi and is bored awaiting to vote yes on new leather, and the new model of the Audi.

The kid named to Committee is dreaming of Audi ownership, and is the cheerleader for "new car", "new car." Ergo---new school.

Dreamin, Dreamin, Dreamin, of the Audi---

From the looks of the picture in the Journal, Mr. Presta is either exasperating the man in the backgruond or putting him to sleep!

Thx for the feedback.

Think of it this way. A Mayor of a city likes the Audi A7. He has money to spend, amortized, over many pockets. He wants others to drive the Audi A7, as its his favorite auto, and his kids enjoy riding in it. 

The Mayor states its better for the city to replace its "aged" fleet of Ford Taurus vehicles with the Audi A7. To get the buy in throughout the city, who will pay for it, the Mayor forms a small Committee, all of which own Audi, love the Audi brand, and drive Audi A7's.

The Committee meets for a period of time, knowing they will recommend the Audi A7 to replace the aged Ford Taurus fleet. A few, perhaps one, within the Committee actually like the Ford Taurus, think its a decent ride, and costs little to maintain in comparison to the sticker shock when looking at the window of the Audi A7.

When 14 out of 15 on the Committee all own the Audi, love the brand, the recommendation to buy an Audi is the outcome, just as the Mayor knew when he formed the Committee.

Mike, do you like Audi's? It will be easy to sell the Audi to the community on the smell of the new leather when the door is opened, and the stainless steel 6 speed shifter turbo is revealed. Nothing beats the smell of "new". Keep an open mind and remember 99.9% of those paying for the Audi Avant 7 will never get to ride in it, but maybe gleam a smell of the leather.

I can’t really say that I disagree with you, Vet.  However, I am trying to keep an open mind and be part of the process.

I must say that some of the folks seem to already have had their minds made up prior to these last two meetings, and don’t even want to allow any dissenting voices to be heard.

Mike, it would not surprise me that the Phase 2 decision had already been made prior to these community meetings. The meetings may be just a passification thing. In the past, we have seen this theme used by the schools and council, and it usually resulted in the school/council doing what they wanted to do along with a few agreeable citizens sitting in the audience. IMO, a new high school has already been planned coupled with the use of the current high school as a middle school. The only thing that is undecided is the timing... waiting to spring the funding issue with some sort of levy on the property owners. IMO, we have never seen what the majority of the community wants from their schools and will never see it. Too much apathy. Too little interest in the town by the people. The school folks will get their little block of support voters to overcome the no voters who show up at the polls at levy time and the levy will pass with 20 something percent of the voters showing up, giving the impression that most people wanted Phase 2, when, in fact, most people don't care either way.

Same old thing. JMO

The Middletown City School District (MCSD) now has a links on their web site for info pertaining to the Facilities Planning Committee.

Here is the link to the MCSD web site:  http://www.middletowncityschools.com/

To find the links for the Facilities Committee info, look for “Facilities Planning Committee” on the right side under “Featured Sections”.  After you click on the link, a pop-up menu appears.  Info from the February 2, 2012 meeting is already listed.  Info from this evening’s meeting (February 15, 2012) is supposed to be posted in the next day or two.

I hope that this helps to keep the community better informed on the issue.
