The Warren County Board of Supervisors has shown poor judgment once again in cutting jobs at the meal site. Since when can you pay someone to do something for less money than you can do it yourself?
Let us take into consideration the time factor on this new deal with Washington County. From the time you take the food out of the oven and prepare it to load is at least 10 minutes. The time to actually load the meals into the truck is 10 additional minutes; 25 minutes to transport it to Queensbury; 10 more minutes to unload the food; 10 minutes to load the food for delivery; 20 minutes to 30 minutes to deliver it. The total time involved is 75 to 85 minutes or an hour and 15 to 25 minutes. Cold food.
After paying tens of millions of dollars in property taxes paid over the years, this is your reward. Cold food. Just remember, supervisors, that seniors vote — 95 percent of them. So your reward is coming with the next election.
