04/13/11 Rye Mayor Doug French And Joe Sack Have Had Enough Of Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin's Mismanagement
Rye Town Park Prepares For Possible Rye City Audit At April 26th Budget Showdown
Problems at Rye Town Park came to a head several months ago when a projected annual deficit of around $40,000 in September swelled to more than $140,000 in December during the three months when the park was basically closed.
That amount included more than $50,000 in unemployment insurance. Mayor French maintained that kind of last minute “surprise” made balancing a budget unpredictable, and he and Joe Sack, a Rye City Council and Rye Town Park Commission member, insisted that kind of inaccurate financial forecasting had to be addressed before they would vote on the $1 million-plus budget for the upcoming season.
In terms of the park’s finances, Rye Citizens Finance Committee member Paula Schaefer has suggested several streamlined accounting procedures such as regular monthly financial reports, which would be available to the Commission on a regular basis. That would help do away with mismanagement and unpleasant surprises.
The Commission will next meet on April 26 at Rye Town Hall in Port Chester to discuss all these issues and vote on the park’s 2011 budget.
Mayor French is demanding an audit the park's accounting practices, after a review by the city's finance committee.
Rye Town Park operating at a loss and that loss has to be covered by both the town and city of Rye. The Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin's 2010 park budget missed its projections by more than 10 percent.
Mayor French said an operating loss of $62,000 was originally projected for 2010, but commission members were told in January that it would be $142,000.
The total operating budget for the Rye Town Park is approximately $1 million.
Paula Schaefer, who ran the review for the city's financial committee, presented her findings to the City Council Wednesday. She concluded that the Carvin administration could benefit from updating Rye Town Park's records as the year goes along, rather than just totalling certain budget lines at the end of each year.
Another change, which could take longer, would be for Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin to change the status of the park's employees to "seasonal." Such an adjustment would prevent those workers from claiming taxpayer funded unemployment benefits, which results in an Rye Town Park added cost,
Mayor French said the basic accounting changes could be implemented relatively quickly if Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin is willing to make the needed changes.
Otherwise Rye will have to demand a full audit of the Carvin administration's management of Rye Town Park.
This is just government inertia on behalf of the Carvin administration, and the City of Rye has decided that they need to change this, in order to protect property owners from Rye Town Park deficits.

Tajik gold – there’s gold in them thar Pamirs
A group of Tajik men were recently taken by surprise, in the woods outside Moscow, when they spotted an animal they had never seen before. "Small bear!" "Small bear!" they shouted in excitement to a Russian nearby, summoning her to come quickly.
The Russian ran to the scene, for sightings of bears are rare near Moscow - unless the creature has escaped from a zoo or circus. A young bear on its own, apart from its parent, or human handler, is even rarer. But as soon as the Russian followed the pointed fingers of the Tajiks to the high branch of a tree, it became clear the animal they were looking at was - a squirrel.
It turns out that in the Tajik language, which is a form of Persian, there is a word for squirrel (sanjab), but few Tajiks have ever spotted one. The nearest counterpart is much bigger - a small bear.
If you are looking for gold in Tajikistan, Tajiks aren't the only ones to say they see a small bear, when in fact there's nothing more than a squirrel. For mining investors and gold bugs in London, the record of gold sighting, and proving, in Tajikistan has proved until now to be disappointing - with short bursts of excitement that have tended to peter out.
One of those occurred in July, when Altima Partners, a hedge fund working out of an office in Carlton Gardens - down the road from Anglo American's headquarters - placedGBP2.8 million in a Tajik mining venture called Saddleback Gold. In recent days, Tajikofficials, Kazakh mining sources, and sources in Moscow all confirm that Saddleback Gold does not have exploration or mining rights to any Tajik gold. According to one ministerial source who counts, this is not going to change......
