The PS 8 PTA will host its monthly meeting on Wednesday night, where the city’s School Construction Authority will present its plans for the building’s future annex — but, PTA officials say, that’s where the discussion with SCA will stop.
The meeting will be open to the public, but only PS 8 PTA members will be able to ask questions — and only about the annex — to the SCA.
On Tuesday, word spread about an idea to seize the opportunity and question the SCA about the contentious Dock Street issue. But PTA Co-President Joanne Singleton and PS 8 principal Seth Phillips will be strict about keeping the meeting on-topic, and “won’t entertain” questions off-topic, Singleton told BHB.
The SCA has said it will schedule a meeting in the near future to publicly present its plans for the annex and to take questions from the public.
Worry not, BHB will be at the meeting and will report back about the city’s plans.
The PS 8 PTA meeting will be on Wednesday, April 22, at 6 pm in the school’s auditorium (Hicks Street between Poplar and Middagh streets).
