What we are facing is the very real possibility that a $2.4 million dollar "Riverfront Upgrade" could be lost to the City of New Albany due to the sheer ineptitude and negligence of our City Adminstration in doing their jobs to fill out the proper paper work to insure acquisition of Federal and State Funding we have already been awarded.

In 1999 a TE Grant was awarded the city and it is a portion of those funds $1.2 million, that Greenway Commission Member Ms. Valla Ann Bolovschak is currently in Indianapolis scrambling to find a way to get this funding transfered by this Wednesday, Sept. 20th deadline or very conceivably lose the Federal Match of $1.2 million.

Greenway Commission Members having been told by Mr. Scott Wood, that the paper work was in order. Thursday phoned INDOT during their last Steering Committee Meeting. In that call they discovered that the New Albany City Administration had apparently not been in touch with Indot for a month. And Sept. 20 is the deadline, end of the fiscal year for the Corp. of Engineers deadline looming ominously around the corner.

Once again we are facing another "City Administration" debaucle, of a 7 figure magnitude "WE CAN NOT STOMACH"...

If someone I know was in charge downtown right now, she wouldn't be able to fire you, Scott Wood, because she would have already done so!
