Bolger Prods Village Council on Installation of Spy Cameras

>

During last night’s Village Council Special Public Meeting, it was revealed that Village officials recently received a rather tersely worded letter from local philanthropist and real estate tycoon David F. Bolger concerning installation of the proposed Bolger Foundation funded, central business district, spy camera system.

It seems as though the installation project isn’t moving fast enough for Mr. Bolger, and he is concerned that the cameras may never be installed. To that end, he has made known his intent to bill Village officials for “engineering and legal fees” of approximately $60K in the event the spy camera project doesn’t progress quickly.

Nice guy that Mr. Bolger, isn’t he? See what happens Mr. Mayor when you take money when strings are attached? I guess the Village will soon be getting a similar letter about the Pease Library project?
