Judge Rules Spring Valley to Allow Summer Camp

State Supreme Court Judge Gerald Loehr made a ruling on the dilemma in Spring Valley on Wednesday morning. Last month the village was facing the closure of its summer camp at the Louis Kurtz Center after the clerks office stated that they had not received the proper paperwork in time. Mayor Demeza Delhomme blames Youth Director Sonia Barton, whom he had earlier suspended from the position, though she stated that the mayor told her someone else would take care of it due to her suspension. Delhomme stated that he set up an agreement with the Martin Luther King Center to hold a program there, and at a July 2 meeting Trustees Vilair Fonvil, Emilia White, and Asher Grossman voted to reinstate the original program and to hire Barton as an independent contractor. Delhomme and Deputy Mayor Anthony Leon were absent from the meeting but were ordered by Loehr to honor the resolution. The trustees hope the camp will start July 14 will allow fifty children to attend for no cost. Barton stated that she is not sure yet whether she will be accepting her former position as youth director because she is worried about her situation with Delhomme, and was unable to further comment, though her union representation stated appropriate legal action is being taken.
