Council toured the facility today and learned outside work is about done with even the parking lot striped. Inside there is a lot of finishing work to do and fixtures to install, but the end product can be visualized.

Council will see more change orders come January but by an large there haven't been that many and the end result will be something to be proud of.
The locker rooms are great. The lighting will be excellent and the seating in the new bleachers will be easier.
I still think the approach to concessions is misguided, but I do like the lobby area and there will be opportunity for more and different events there.
Meanwhile, I will be headed to Albany in the AM for the last time. The announcement of Regional Council awards warrants the trip. Maybe I'll meet Maria Bartiromo. She has MC'd them in the past. Councilwoman Roxanne Burns will host the HOTLINE.
That and one more meeting is about it till handing off the football the end of the month. Channel 7 wants to do an "exit interview" with me. I'll think about that one as I don't consider myself a candidate for the obit page quite yet.
