BPO Under the Gun

30 Apr

The County Legislature’s Community Enrichment Committee met today, where County Executive Chris Collins and his commissioner, Holly Sinnott, were not treated to a particularly warm and cozy set of questions. The meeting ran an hour longer than scheduled.

At one point during the meeting a question was raised about 2009 arts/cultural contracts with the county that Collins’ office had sent to the county comptroller’s office for checks to be issued. The comptroller’s office had received one such item, received very late in the day yesterday. It was for the BPO in the amount of $407,000. If the check was not issued by tomorrow, the BPO would not make payroll.

And they say government or the arts has no stimulative effect on the economy.

    Voluntary stimulus is far better than government coerced stimulus. Voluntary stimulus allocates limited resources in a manner most beneficial compared to the government.
