Another Dayton Beach Park Rip-off

Dear Editor,

Another horror is unfolding for all 1100 families living in the Dayton Beach co-op :

The capacity of heating-oil storage tanks is about to be reduced by more than half, necessitating deliveries more than twice as often by oil suppliers. Two 20,000-gallon tanks – each 6’ diameter and more than 30 feet long – were smashed and destroyed on Monday, 20 September, to be replaced by a single 18,000-gallon tank That new tank may be moved from outside 8200 Shore Front Parkway, from the existing dedicated trench west of the building, to INSIDE 8200 by breaking through an exterior wall.

A super-enormous Daewoo construction machine did the destruction on the veteran steel tanks. The Daewoo had been sitting idle, totally motionless and silent for more than 5 weeks, from 12 August to 20 September near the trench, on parking spaces of 14 cars to which “Vacate” orders had been given Dayton families will no doubt be asked to pay unused rental time on the Daewoo. Dayton families will also be asked to absorb the much higher cost of #2 heating oil that will henceforth be burned, as opposed to the low cost of #6 heating oil that has served Dayton cleanly and well for 45 years. And although currentlycheap natural gas reaches the Dayton boiler room, the locking-in of an alternative 10-year gas-only contract was not seriously evaluated because Board meetings are now exclusively insider affairs, completely closed to shareholders who must foot the bill.

So why is big-money being thrown away on this transformation? ANSWER: for the same reason the better part of $38 million was squandered unnecessarily ripping every brick (from the roof to the ground) off the face of four of Dayton’s five buildings a few years ago – namely, for the servicing of the Grand Public-Land Thieves who are operating full-steam on the Rockaway Peninsula under cover of the Thieves’ captured NYC Department, HPD. So that the Thieves can extract maximum rich-neighborhood prices from the cheeseboxes they are plunking down on our land mid- Peninsula, the Thieves demand and instigate highest possible monthly payments in surrounding properties. The corrupt Board of Directors of Dayton cooperates by generating boondoggle big-money expenditures, pretexts for pumping up monthly “maintenance” fees.

Victim families of Dayton Beach are paying 50 percent more per month than are residents in identical apartments in Dayton Towers next door because Dayton Towers families have not been afflicted by the likes of Dayton Beach’s serviceable Dolores Orr and Jennifer Grady and Dolores and Jennifer’s flunkies.

Elections take place in October for one third of Dayton Beach’s fifteen Board members. Any Dayton Beach shareholder who fails to vote for explicit opponents and fighters-against the Orr/Grady clique is a fool, a fool deserving of the financial punishment that is coming.
