SPEECH THAT WAS TO BE GIVEN TO LEWISTON, MAINE CITY COUNCIL; Tuesday 2017 @ 7pm on Greatfalls Television Channel 7 or 11. Click, on anything red or blue.

18 Jul

Name: Charles Arthur Soule’
Address: 135 Bartlett Street

I was quite unamused when I heard that the poorest children in the City of Lewiston, Maine were being charged a dollar a day to swim in the city owned park pool. The fact that this charge is being applied to the poorest square mile residents in New England is outrageous

Considering, that this Council gave the City Administrator a $3000 dollar raise on an over $120 thousand dollar salary.

And, you are allowing the Androscoggin Bank Colisee’ to fall better than 2 year in arrears to the City of Lewiston; and, to at last I knew a figure of over $36 thousand dollars.

And, have just found $150 thousand dollar of unaccounted fund to do the plumbing on the new field house at the building site at the Lewiston High School from the Community Development Black Grant; that had not been taken into consideration in regards to the Fiscal year 2018 Budget.

Contingency funds ?

NOTE:

Have talked to the head life guard a the Lewiston, Maine swimming pool.

Average, number of “Paid” swimmer a day; excluding rain days…..60 at cost to swimmer $1.00.

Average, number of days; not excluding rain days; “No: swims” …44 incl. Sat’s.

Money made by City of Lewiston for season on swimmers. . . . . . $2,640.00

Cost to City of Lewiston, Maine; if budgeted . . . . . . $2,640.00

Under, the cost of the $3,000.00 raise given to Lewiston City Administrator.

I swam in the pool back in 1964 as my cosine lived on Spruce Street. And, It was “free”.

Is, miss management the issue with Lewiston, Maine ? As, the City Administrator received a $3,000.00 dollar raise this year on an over $127,000.00 salary ?
