WNY Superintendent John Fauta referenced aÂ two-page letterÂ from Town Attorney Donald Scarinci, sent to Interim Executive County Superintendent Monica Tone, dated September 22, where he said that Fauta â€œhas refused to bus these children,â€ also writing in the letter that Fauta had painted the town â€œin a false and negative light to the Department of Education.â€
Fauta then wrote to Tone on September 26 with a four-page letter, responding to Scarinciâ€™s allegations point-by-point.
As Hudson County View reported last month, Fauta and Scarinci were on opposite ends of the spectrum after the town approved a $100,000 shared services agreement with the board of education.
Fauta told us that money for a new bus route could cost upwards of $700,000, so $100k simply wasnâ€™t going to cut it.
Scarinci and town spokesman Pablo Fonseca did not immediately return calls seeking comment, but this story will be updated in the event comment is given.
