Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes,
our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
At the 8/25/14 work session, the Toughman 5 year contract was discussed among other issues. (Thank you to Croton United's candidates Virginia Calcutti and Bob Anderson for attending. Thanks as well to Croton United members Dan Chesnard and Joel Gingold.)
Some highlights only follow below. As always you should listen to the work session audiotape when it is made available on the village website and confirm this for yourself.
--The contract was continually supported by Mayor Wiegman who claimed the event brought in over $10,000 to the village businesses last year. A freedom of information request will be filed for the supporting documentation.
--The contract calls for the village to receive $14,000 annually with an
increase of 2.5% each year over the next four years. Village expenses last year were $13,039 according to the documentation/bills that Ms. Calcutti obtained. Mr. Zambrano will try to negotiate for more money. As of last night, however, this was a go.
--The mayor stated that this is "only for 6 hours".
