    What about seeing if some of this money could be used to help bring Craig Montag back to Brooklyn park next summer?

    The city, amitst seemingly endless budget cuts, announced a while back that there is a likly chance that due to a lack of funding, the 33+ year Brooklyn park summer program would likly be cut. I think that these funds might be a way to tap into money to cover the costs of the summer program so that the kids of this area have a safe place to go and stay out of possible trouble.
