Where is the Center going to get a quarter-million dollars?

The outgoing Glens Falls Common Council is expecting the Civic Center to make up $225,000 by cutting expenses and bringing in new acts. Where were these guys for the past four years?
If the Civic Center had the ability to bring in a quarter of million bucks extra per year, it wouldn't be in this mess. Seems like Bud is exacting a little post-election revenge against Mayor-elect Roy for boasting about his ability to turn the place around.
It's easy for an outgoing government board to make cuts when they're not going to be responsible for paying for them. Don't be surprised if the next council is scrambling to find $225,000 when they start settling the books next year.
