Spring Valley Summer Camp Problems

Spring Valley Village Trustee Vilair Fonvil announced that he is calling for a special meeting to discuss bringing the summer camp back under village command. The day camp program was at risk of being cancelled because the County Health Department did not receive paper work in time, after Youth Director Sonia Burton was suspended from her position. Mayor Demeza Delhomme stated last month that the camp would move from the usual location at the Louis Kurtz Center to be run by the staff at the Martin Luther King Multi-Purpose Center and the board recently approved a $20,000 contract with the center. Fonvil stated that Burton was recently reinstated and he is looking to have her take up her old position of running the summer camp for the fifty or so children that have no camp to attend. According to Fonvil there is money in the budget so that fifty children can attend camp for free. Fonvil has called for a meeting at 6:00 PM tonight, though Delhomme stated that it isn’t necessary since the kids are going to the Martin Luther King Center, saying, “He can open up a camp on the street, but not in my village. We have a summer camp.”
