PCS board needs to be more transparent, honest
To the Editor:
Potsdam Central taxpayers deserve an explanation for the questionable behavior surrounding what will be our newest facility--the 20-year-old building now occupied by a private daycare. The written facts are as follows:
1. Jan. 11, 2011--The BOE formally votes to declare the building “needed” for “District purposes when said property is transferred to the district in May 2013.”
2. Nov. 21, 2011--(Closed door meeting) Building Blocks Daycare meets with superintendent and requests use of the building beyond the May 2013 deadline.

If you’re a sportsman or woman, you might want to check out Hopkinton’s next town meeting where they want to ban hunting weapons and trapping materials from town property.
