Council To Talk Burgers and Fries Again

   The advancer written about tonight's Council meeting talks about the Arena concessions, even though it's not on the official agenda, and it's the night where findings on the annual assessment of Council's two direct hires are approved as required by the City Charter.
     The food issue doesn't seem resolvable as too many people have dug in on positions and made too many public statements to reach a reasonable decision. I understand the dilemma as its easy to get on a limb and you get to thinking there is no way off without compromising your dignity, when in fact most people outside the room don't have as much stake in the position taken as those in the room.

Yet another fine mess.
Wouldn't you think this would have all been resolved before voting on funding the project was even set?
A bunch of people were in too much of a hurry to spend money we do not have!
Kind of like going to Walmart for a shirt and coming out with a big screen TV on the charge card and no shirt.

Could someone name who was the blue ribbon committee? The CM lowered salaries on the City Engineer. Why not lower these same employees?

The place really isn't used enough to have a bigger concession stand.

Too late now, but having an area where local food trucks could pull into and set up inside with proper ventilation for things would have been a nice idea.

This is beginning to rival the roommate issue in terms of pure stupidity and "only in Watertown" in regards to how this is actually news. Put it to rest once and for all. Maybe time to clean a little house over there at the ole Arena.
