  1. Surprise, surprise, surprise – another study. Another pile of money down the drain. Until Augusta takes care and maintains infrastructure and facilities, the arena should be shelved. There are to many issues to force this boondoggle on the taxpayers.
    Why aren’t local companies bidding in the Appleby branch roof? The cost approved seems exorbitant.

    Taxpayers I hope you scrutinize the upcoming budget proposals – a lot of items you will be on the hook for after the Cares Money goes away.

  2. Governance by committees and commissions means no expertise, skills, knowledge, or accountability are required. Get paid for occupying the office, hire consultants and contractors to do your work, and blame them if the project crashes and burns. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Leave your office early, cash paycheck on way home, and ignore the emails and phone messages from your constituents. “Meanwhile, District 7 Commissioner Sean Frantom added an item to the Engineering Committee agenda…” Impressive!

    It may be that no local roofing company is desperate enough or so uninformed that they would respond to a bid request from Augusta’s government.

  3. Here we go again, more money, more studies and consulting fees about an Arena. Who is on the Administrative Service Committee and why are they pushing for an Arena that we do not want or need now. When will we get new people on our Coliseum Authority? I guess $45,000 it not as much as they have already spent on consultant services that have bled our city funds way too long. STOP. Mr. Odie Donald please open your eyes and be a City Administrator that stands up to this Committee and the Coliseum Authority. Enough! I agree with Mr. Mason…….“We’ve already given them money so they could begin working on the failed new arena,”
