Sesquicentennial report

Bellevue Council member Tom Hrynda, who chaired the committee that planned the celebration of Bellevue’s 150th anniversary in 2017, reported at Tuesday’s council meeting that the events had raised enough money to cover all costs, including repayment of the money advanced by the borough initially.

Hrynda thanked council member Henry Lenard for making the motion to advance the funds to kick off the celebration, but had harsh word for council member Tom Fodi, who opposed the expenditure. “I guess you were a little premature at trying to shut us down at every step,” Hrynda told Fodi.
