Sorry to not have had a chance to meet or chat with you.For the last month n half I have been sweating each day out in an attempt to bring the cemetery back to par. Kathy or Bob could fill ya in on my background. My working at Cortland Rural has been a true pleasure, while also serving as an education on how any NGO, non prof or small buisness can be run into the ground. Prior to her departure Kathy and I would refer to CCR as "the ship". Some days the sailing went smooth, most days were spent taking on water and the last week im sad to say its sinking. Our cemetery is in need of some insight, guidence, common sense and accountability. Failure to act on the situation now at hand, will result in a return to last months condition of grounds, more lot owner complaints, and possible loss of some free labor programs. This is your inside track, if you would care to know more, please contact me. At the very least I would hope the foundation as a whole could look into current matters BEFOR they get out of hand. I have next week off to spend with family, Jim informed me today there wont be payroll for me upon my return. (a kind lay off). After a months observation I believe the problems more productivity not money with Cortland Rural. Failure to manage your assets of eqipment or labor are going to be a breach in your hull, an extensive and costly repair. There are many ways to raise money other than letting things run down for donations. Since I reside on James street I will have a front row seat. Im sorry to say as a taxpayer within the city I will do all in my power to inform common council of current management situation prior to any consideration of city grant money. The city as well as the foundation need to fully understand where the money goes and how its spent. No one can afford to throw money into holes theese days. I (along with 18000 headstones) thankyou for your personal care and attention to CCR in both the past, present and future. Your contributions and care towards the cemetery are understood and that is why Ive choosen to reach out you. Thankyou much, Andy Simpson.
