    “OMG” What a joke this is “at our expense” Like we needed an assistant for the city manager…like we needed a oversized ladder fire truck…like we needed to rehire the school super and pay him more than the governor of the state….like we needed to help fund a 100 year celebration for the local hospital…….do I need to go on…this place is no different than any other place in the world …spending money we don’t have and being to stupid to care what happens for the future generations. We don’t need to put in a community center that costs 10 million dollars or even 7 million where do these people think we live in hollywood. The people on the council are a joke also………they like to get back in bed with the likes of bonville. It is so out there now that we will never see good times for our children because they will spend their lives struggling to make things better from the enviroment to the government to religion…… Penn state is just the top of the iceburg…….

    oh and chapman street for a location ???????????come on what was wrong with the park where Winnie’s is. To far away from being on a location where there might be less damage to the facility……..I’m just saying probably not the most ideal location.

    Why not take some of the money that has been raised and offer it to residents to offset the membership cost of using Gentile Hall?  How many facilities does Presque Isle really need?
