LAUSD Sticking It To The Little League?
For now, they intend to seek out sponsors to cover their costs. I would also suggest involving local community and service groups in running programs, raising funds and even volunteer to do some of the maintenance (Uh oh! The unions just crapped their pants here).
What better way for a government agency to be of service to the community than to provide recreational and other facilities, primarily for youth who need them? We pay taxes for Christ's sake and these blowhards are coming after us every single election for more money.
"The decision comes months after the district proposed charging $78 for a permit and up to $48 per hour for the use of facilities, igniting a firestorm of criticism from community and nonprofit organizations that said it would force them to cancel activities."We all know about the audits that have been done that show how much money the LAUSD horrifically wastes. They have plenty of other options to get their financial house in order than trying to stick it to the local little league.
Weezy are you listening? All those moms and dads in CD14 who take their kids to Little League, soccer and Boy & Girl Scouts meetings in those schools will be watching. Are you going to bankrupt these wonderful organizations because you can't find a solution to the minimal expense it incurs to let our children use our publicly owned facilities?
We'll be watching too.
