Coming from someone who was going to cost the park and town over $2000.00 in rental fees. Really tired of how meeting time is being compromised by one individual with this kind of petty personal agenda issues!

That's a good point, Jason. Too many people forget that the guy who is complaining that EP doesn't make enough money at the park in general and the concession stand in particular is the same guy who wanted to give the community center away for free. He wants to have it both ways. On the other hand, it looks to me like the concession stand is a money pit, never makes a profit, so if someone wants to pay the village, say, $500.00 a month to operate it for the town, then I say be my guest. This was tried before, I think at least twice in the past, and was a disaster both times. It's impossible to see how anyone could ever do it and make any money. But as P.T. Barnum said . . .

simply put...this council is full of idiots...one stupid idea after the other, by one dumb person after another. Sheer amazement, Elzer needs run out of town wimpering.

After some research, I found the concession stand was operated by Aramark once. It wasn't profitable.
