Buckingham Pond Park caretaker, Jack, does a terrific job maintaining
Jack tells me that Friday will be his last day, and he won't be coming back next season because of 62 seasonal workers will be cut from the city budget.
The plan is for a city crew to follow a one day a month mowing-maintenance schedule next year.
This in unacceptable!
Buckingham Pond Park is the centerpiece of our neighborhood. We need Jack to stay on as a seasonal caretaker.
Homeowners in this neighborhood pay very high property taxes, and in turn, receive minimal city services, as compared to many other city neighborhoods.
Contact Mayor Jennings immediately. Ask him to restore Jack's seasonal
position as caretaker of Buckingham Pond Park, and to supplement Jack's efforts with city parks crews, as needed.
Call the Mayor at 434 5100, write him at City Hall, Albany, 12207 or call in on his Friday radio show, 9-10 AM . Talk Radio 1300 AM . 476 1300.
Thank you. J P Sullivan
