Citizen confused by city’s choice in Keno recipient PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I am a little bit confused why the Perkins County School Board thinks the city should use Keno money to help them with their parking lot.
I think I heard them say that $300,000 was a minor expense so we could have a fancy gym.         I would think $5,000 or $6,000 to tear a house down would be chump change for them. Now if you cover up your existing parking lot with a building and you haven’t budgeted in for a new one, maybe you shouldn’t be running our school district.
And to our town board, I don’t know why you would even think about giving them the money when our boys’ T-ball teams all had to wear helmets that were 20 years old and big enough to fit an adult. If you want to spend Keno money, spend it on the young kids in the community. They will appreciate it.
Maybe they can charge each 30,000 plus vehicles that will park in that lot a couple of bucks a day and they will have it paid for in a couple of years.
