Re: “Former Burlington College President Unloads on Board, Jane Sanders

Normally, the President of the college and the Board would be provided financial information by the Comptroller or Director of Finance. They are reliant upon this information as accurate when making decisions. Board minutes may tell a story here of what was presented, how, and what the source of that information was. Though no one is blameless, boards are not meant to micromanage the information provided them. Ditto the college president. There must be some trust that what is being presented to them is accurate and truthful. The question then arises around what information was given and by whom. Who found the million dollar pledge and reported it to the board? It sounds like someone or more than one someone was peddling a bill of goods to the board...

Re: “Vermont Supreme Court Says Burlington Can Party On at Waterfront Park

The permits for the brick townhouses preceded the 1994 permit for the concerts and festivals---go look it up. In fact, 216 Lake Street was already built there, and many of the people living there helped to craft the 1994 permit that reflected a balance between the City's desire to make money and the taxpayers/area residents' desires for some balance. No one tried to shut down the park or the activities there. The permit granted to the City had specific parameters that the City chose to ignore. No matter where one lives in Burlington, one has the right to expect that the City will a) follow the regulations that it is bound by, and b) enforce its own noise ordinances. This was not a NIMBY. And just remember, when there are money making activities there, we, the people of Burlington, are fenced out of using the park. It costs $25 or $40 or more to be part of the majority of "activities" there.
