Why donate truck to Meadows?

Why donate truck to Meadows?

September 7, 2013

Perhaps someone can please explain to me why the Board of Supervisors in North Strabane Township voted to “donate” a used Ford Tundra pickup truck to The Meadows Racetrack & Casino to assist The Meadows with “security.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I am having difficulty understanding why an organization such as The Meadows, which has consistently shown annual gross and net earnings in the millions of dollars, needs a “donation” from North Strabane Township.

My question to supervisors is a simple one: Would not the donation of the used truck been put to better use if said vehicle were to have been donated to a local charitable, nonprofit organization, which then in turn could have sold the vehicle and used the proceeds from the sale to fund their charitable community endeavors?
