    If he is smart he would follow the example of other Towns....
    1. Utilize existing Town owned green space.
    2. Construction costs and operation of the facility belongs to a soccer or football association or club. Insurance costs are included. The clubs make payments via membership fees and food sales.
    3. Town mows lawns and paints lines.

    No real cost to the Town, and facility is self sufficient.

    As stated by Supervisor Giza - "We start with just One Million Tax Dollars."

    Sir,
    You seem to have a knack for over simplification. There is always a cost to tax payers.

    I am not against Soccer Players -

    I dont like Politicians who help create the demand for tax funded services to garner votes.

    First - every penny spent by Government - is tax money - yes, even the "Grants" they brag about are tax dollars.

    They also pay a private Grant writer (tax dollars) to get those grants(Tax dollars).

    Every grass cutting, line painting Town Employee cost tax dollars.

    In Lancaster one single employee - even if started at "Part time", can grow into a life time of tax funded salary, tax funded pension and tax funded benefits.

    Better known as "Patronage Jobs" - Lancaster's Town Budget is full of "Loyal Committee" family members collecting their share of the "BIG POT."

    Supervisor Giza said, "Theres a Big pot of money out there - we better grab it before someone else does."

    Taxpayers translation: = The big pot is filled with tax dollars - lets grab as much as we can before another local Government does.

    Politicians love to speak in metaphors like little kids do - its like when a kid says Dukey instead of Crap. He knows what he's saying - he still swears and gets away with it because he said "Grant" instead of "Tax"
    #Dems play musical chairs + patronage and nepotism = entitlement !
