Friends of the Flint House Massacre
I’ve always been pleased with the community spirit in the Village of Scotia. Like any community there are always times when residents butt head with local government and Scotia is no different.Recently the local papers reported on the problems of the Friends of the Flint House volunteers. Even though the Flint House is village park property, the department of public works felt the volunteers should be responsible for removing yard waste and trash. Friends of the Flint House president, Cindi Pytlovany delivered a bag of garbage to DPW headquarters and was promptly arrested for illegal dumping.
Mayor Kastberg was reported by the Daily Gazette to say…
“She tried to make a point. She took the bag of garbage that was in the can and brought it to DPW. She can be forceful and she can be dramatic. We took care of it,”
After meeting with Mayor Kastberg, the Friends of the Flint House thought the trash issue was settled but “upon further consideration”, the mayor changed the terms.Over the last three years the Friends of the Flint House has hosted numerous free programs for kids and adults. They've obtained over $50,000 in grants and donations. At this time the status of the Friends of the Flint House is unknown but I hope you’ll enjoy their recent video.
