Tusten in uproar over Narrowsburg School
Other residents also raised the question of “why the school?” Tony Staffieri mentioned that there are other closed rehabs in the area, and there is one for sale across the river in Pennsylvania. “Why would you want the school more than that?” he asked. She replied “I just like the school better.”
He added, “This is the worst business plan I have heard in my life.” He asked people to raise their hands if they are against this plan, and almost everyone did. “Ms. Buto, welcome to Narrowsburg,” he said. “We’d love to have you live here, but not work here.”
Kathy Michell spoke about the Weidens offer. “We have the opportunity to create a community center to provide educational, recreational, and small business opportunities, which will give people choices so they don’t need Changes.”
The public comment period was cut short due to a tornado warning. The meeting is rescheduled for tonight at 7:00 p.m.
