Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin will chaired a meeting of the Rye Town Park Commission last night to discuss how the Carvin administration will deal with another year of mounting losses at Oakland beach, as well as, the latest expensive Carvin RFP (request for proposal) on automated parking and beach access system.
Many Port Chester, Rye Brook, Rye City and Rye Neck taxpayers say that Mr. Carvin's obligations at Altima Partners has prevented the Rye Town Supervisor to properly manage Oakland beach. Last property owners had to make up an unnecessary loss.
However, some park commission members have said that Supervisor Joe Carvin has put in controls that may prevent or limit the deficit. This is very critical in 2011, because Supervisor Carvin promised that there would be a surplus at Rye Town Park, before his term was up this year.
Commission members have said to prevent a deficit this year the Rye Town budgeted expenses may be cut from $980,000 to $950,000 mainly by cutting employee hours. Security and life guard hours would not be cut.
It is rumored that pre-season park income was almost non-existent for some reason and was about $20,000 less than last year. Park employees say that the beach only made about $1,200 this year on July 3rd compared to $45,000 last year.
Meanwhile, the Friends of Crawford Park will focused on ways to beautify the other Rye Brook park that Mr. Carvin has ignored. The Friends of Crawford Park met last night at Crawford Park mansion, 122 North Ridge St., Rye Brook.
