Atkinson field construction on hold

From the Eagle Tribune;

Atkinson field construction on hold
By Eric Parry

ATKINSON — Two new athletic fields on East Road may not be constructed this year as planned.

The town doesn't know if it can use money from a $40,000 warrant article approved at the 2008 Town Meeting to build the fields because of the wording. A $45,000 warrant article was approved at this year's meeting for a total of $45,000.

Construction of the fields was supposed to start this month. The town is now consulting with its attorney to see if there is any way to start the project before next year.

"So far, we're just waiting to hear from the lawyer," Recreation Director Noriko Yoshida-Travers said.

The town had planned to build half the project this spring with $85,000 and put another warrant article before voters next year. That money would go for a multipurpose field and a lacrosse field.

Voters turned down a second warrant article at this year's Town Meeting worth $25,000 that would have been used to build a 50-car parking lot and a walking path around the two fields.

If the town is only able to use the $45,000 from this year's article, it's unlikely that any construction will take place this year, according to Selectman Bill Bennett.

The fields have to sit for a year before they can used, so teams in town would have to wait until the 2011 season if no work is done this year.

Patti Mangini, chairman of the Recreation Commission, said previously that the athletic leagues and Recreation Commission would fundraise before next March to help ease the burden on taxpayers.

I think the "Atkinson field" is a waste of money

Another waste of money, just like the poorly designed library.

Has there been a gag order placed on the moderator of the blog and is why we have deleted posts?

this is not related to the field construction but may get attention here.

Just a question for Ted. As I travel through town I've noticed people have LARGE piles of brush and some whole trees dumped near the road in front of their homes. One area in particular that seems to be getting larger is on Academy Ave. I remember you saying that it was the homeowners responsibility to get rid of it, since after the storm it was already done on the taxpayers dime, and you weren't going to be using town money to clean it up. Fair enough, I paid over a thousand dollars to have the limbs and brush chipped and taken away (I don't have a pickup truck to take to the dump so had to pay to clean it up), please don't tell me the town is going to cave in and go around cleaning up in front of peoples homes just to get it out of the "right of way", after myself and many other homeowners took care of our own messes. Stick with what you said! Because we all went out and hired people to deal with the storm damage, it would be a crime for you to turn around and say it would be a safety issue for the road crew next winter, and clean up what others left in the right of ways. I would have stacked it all in the right of way and left it there if I even thought you would go back on your word about the town not picking it up.

So, either the moderator of this farce is deleting entries wholesale, or, it has been hacked.

HEY, MR. BLOG OWNER. How about telling us what is going on? Are you censoring, or have you lost control. We really need to know.

Methinks the twit that's been haunting this blog for a while now (Sapia?) is trying to brew some trouble around here.

Come now, give us a little more credit than falling for these weak tactic...

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post
seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let
you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
Many thanks
