Pete Sassos, owner of Pete's Famous Restaurant, echoed sentiments voiced by Serroukas.
"I don't know where we're going with the sewer," said Sassos
A sewer, according to Sassos
, is what Hyde Park needs in order to be competitive with nearby restaurants."The C.I.A.
is in competition with us," he
said."You cannot bring in business without a sewer."Sassos
also asked the board to serve the interests of their constituents."Think for everybody and don't think as individuals," he
urged the board to move forward before Gagne grows impatient and takes his St. Andrews project elsewhere.
"We have to get somebody when he's
hot, otherwise, forget about it," said Sassos
. Noreen Reilly, who previously served as Dutchess County Majority Leader representing Hyde Park, has also served on economic revitalization committees for many years and agreed with Sassos.
