At Monday night's Board meeting, Mayor David Nyce suggested that it would be nice to throw a party for all the volunteers who worked at Memorial Day Weekend's which drew more than the expected 50,000 people and made the village $20,000 richer, according to Nyce.
But his proposal to spend $5,000 of that money on a party was voted down by the board after public commentary against the move. Suggestions included using the money to help fund future events or to fix a plague of potholes on First Street and other village locations.
What do you think? Could an appreciation party really have hurt? Or, in these harsh economic times, should every extra penny go to infrastructure improvements? Let us know in the comments below.
