  1. They’re kidding, right? $25,000 in consulting fees for a restaurant operator and a GM search when I handed them Troon Prive’ AND KemperSports who would do that for free!!!
    Who has a count for how much in “consulting fees” this Council has blown in, say the last 4 years??? If they don’t have the expertise to come to an assessment on their own, maybe they should all step down.

  2. Maybe Rye should get away from police commissioner running the PD and go with a Police Chief which would be from the ranks. Sgt and up. With a commissioner you will always get an outsider who knows nothing about Rye. Worst thing Rye ever did. Plus look who picks the commissioner. Maybe hire some local people again who want the job. 12 years of outside hires and residents can’t get hired anywhere. Way the process works. Just my opinion.
