Though the Grinch only comes out at Christmas, there must be a Grinch on Northampton County Council coming out to ruin Easter. At their last meeting, Northampton County Council unanimously approved either $800 or $900 for the annual Easter Egg hunt on put on for 300 children by the Deputy Sheriffs. In addition to an egg hunt at Tuskes Park, there's pony rides, a special appearance by the Easter Bunny and all kinds of treats. It's a great family outing. But I've been told that one member of Council has submitted a resolution to take the money back, after it's already been approved. It would also be a Council member who thought there was nothing wrong with an $84,000 no-bid contract for propaganda.
I expect to have more information about this today. If this is true, it's insane.
I would counter with a resolution adding $100.
Updated 9:15 am. Folks, I misunderstood a joke as reality. Looks like I'm today's April Fool. There is a resolution, but only because the funds were already appropriated in the budget. I got my facts wrong. Mea culpa.
