Believes town can ‘survive’ without new pavilion

To the Editor:

Penfield Pavilion. It’s a done deal. We really never had a choice. First we had “if we get 20 emails we will listen to the people.”

Well, they got 60 emails and then said we will consider what the people want. Sounds like “if you like your insurance policy you can keep it, period.”

Should the town ask the people to vote on this project or would that go the same way as the emails? “No matter how you vote, if we don’t agree we will do as we please.” Was this project always a done deal?

The townspeople got through a whole summer without the pavilion and we all survived. Do we really need and can we afford a new pavilion?

Your taxes are going up again next year and a new pavilion will make them go up even more. I would like to say “people of Fairfield, speak up,” but I guess that wouldn’t make any difference either.

And to add insult to injury, some of the same people who were on the first planning committee are on the new committee to decide how we go forward with this new project. Can we expect anything different?
