If you haven't been following the story, we're proud to announce that Troy is no longer getting Weed 'n Seed money. Why? Due to the gross incompetence of Rensselaer County.
Seems our friends at the County are unwilling, or unable, to respond to the Federal Government's inquiries. And if you know the Feds, that really pisses them off. Also note, "no additional adjustments will be granted...." Translation, no more money for now.
Perhaps the City Administration should start making some noise about this. After all, it was Troy's money. Cops in Troy are being pulled back from Weed 'n Seed details while County law enforcement has no such problems. Maybe Mirch can be the City's point man in going after the County and....no, that won't work. Could be a conflict of interest.
There is a theory that the missing Weed 'n Seed money will equal the County Legislature's pay raise. Stay tuned.
On that note, has anyone heard back from their legislators about the pay raise. We'd love to know.
Finally, you are all cordially invited to the Troy Polloi Festivus Party on December 20, 2005. We'll begin the festivities with the "Airing of Grievances."
