Louise Mekosh, Lake Como administrator and chief financial officer [CFO], confirmed this week that Mr. Hyde has made numerous donations to the borough.
also said an alcohol distributor which services Bar Anticipation, and other liquor establishments in the area, donated about $2,500 for materials that were used in constructing the dais in the municipal building.
agreed that since the borough does not treat Bar Anticipation
differently from any other business, the owner's donations neither constituted a conflict of interest for the ABC
board nor deserved any suspicion.
"That's just the way this town is.I don't think it's unusual [for Bar Anticipation
to donate to the borough] as long as the town isn't allowing any special favors for that," she
