I often agree with Mr. Putnam except when it comes to spending funds on our parks. In this case, he simply has his facts wrong. Since I attended several of the Mackle Park meetings, I was certain $100,000 was not spent on a landscape architect to re-design Mackle Park. I researched the history and the cost was $59,500. While I disagreed with some of the plan components I think it was money well spent and had excellent community participation. I also know Mr. Souza was not paid $100,000 when he started here. His leadership and the skills of the consultant complimented each other well, just as they should have. Sorry you have your facts wrong about Mackle Park, Mr. Putnam. Other than your recent letter, I do generally agree with you.
