On March 27th, we discovered a large sinkhole in the parking lot. What transpire from there has been a nightmare! We contacted United Contractors and discovered a rotted tank several feet underground with a strong odor of oil. Once that was discovered a series of events followed. We had to notify DEC and special companies had to be hired to remove and dispose of the contaminated soil. That process took a month and is still not completed. We must pave the area next year.
This has been an extraordinarily huge expense. To date, we owe $32,899.10 to contractors and we still have two other outstanding bills. We anticipate at least another $10,000 expense. More specific detailed information is available at the office.
We are asking for your help to cover these expenses by way of suggestions...should we have a:
SPECIAL COLLECTION or SEND letters to Parishioners asking for a donation or should we just pray that everyone will reach a little deeper to help pay for this unexpected extraordinary expense? Please call the office with recommendations or speak to Father Joe.
