Reading the article in the Aug. 25 paper about the roof of the Civic Center troubles me greatly. Years ago, when improvements were desired for the structure, the Hockey Association would hold a fundraiser. Why not do that again instead of grabbing taxes to do the work?
Also; since when does it take 412 days to complete the roof repairs? This is absurd!
Leave the tax payers alone! Do a fund raiser like we did years ago. The family I grew up in sold many boxes of candy to fund the first major change to the Arena in the ‘60s.
