We have received multiple eyewitness reports this week that the hospital is persisting in its destruction efforts even though the court case is still pending. As you can see from the photos, the fountain has been removed and the Prouty Garden is filled with trucks and heavy equipment.
As we stated in our last post, spending money on this ill-considered project is a very risky move for the hospital with the core civil complaint under review by the Superior Court. Should the court rule against the hospital on any of the multiple failures of the DoN process that the Ten Taxpayer Group has identified in its complaint, the hospital could be facing untold significant costs to undo work that it has undertaken thus far.
While the hospital administration may have benefited from having the political establishment in its hip pocket in its efforts to get the PHC’s approval of it application, its arrogant assumption that it also has the Superior Court in its corner may be misplaced if the court takes a hard, objective look at the multiple failures of the process.
YOU CAN STILL HELP!
