Pools closed, courts closed, Hessville library closed.

The mayor says he is saving money by closing these agencies. It sure is hard to believe when you can build a multi-million-dollar sports complex, not sparing any expense.

Mayor, how much did you spare on putting in a dog park on 173rd Street and Cline, but you had no money to repair pools and open for children to get exercise? Seems to me you have money to put in and keep running what you want, not what is good for citizens.
