Mayor David T. Pfund dropped a bombshell during last night’s Village Council Work Session when he hinted that he would not seek re-election to the Village Council prior to the expiration of his current term in 2010.
The Mayor commented that he would not be serving on the Village Council in 2011, which is when the proposed $13.9 million “Graydon Water Park” would open if construction begins as proposed in August of 2010.
It is being reported that Mayor Pfund is supporting every major capital project currently under consideration by Council members, including:
The $2.9 million purchase of vacant property on West Saddle River Road for preservation as open space
An $18 million parking garage/retail complex on North Walnut Street
The $13.9 million “Graydon Water Park”
The Fly wonders if Mr. Pfund is supporting these expensive projects only because he won’t be around to deal with the mess that will surely follow if our economy continues to go down the tubes, and the Village has trouble paying off the interest on any municipal bonds sold to raise cash.
