Spring Valley Camps Still in Question

Spring Valley Mayor Demeza Delhomme held a press conference on Tuesday at the Louis Kurtz Center to discuss the village’s summer youth programs. The program normally held at the center was at risk of being cancelled last month after it was stated by officials that there was no one to run it. Delhomme suspended the village’s Youth Director Sonia Barton, claiming he was unhappy with the after school program she was running, which is set up for seventy children though only about twenty-four attend. Just over a week ago a state Supreme Court Judge ruled that the board of Trustee’s decision to hire Barton as an independent contractor to run the summer program must be upheld. Village Attorney Jerrod Miles stated that Barton is the only employee, suspended or otherwise, with the proper certification to run the program. Delhomme stated at the conference that Spring Valley gave $20,000 to the Martin Luther King Center to allow children to attend the youth programs there and that ongoing construction at the Louis Kurtz Center will prevent children from attending camp at that location. Delhomme stated that there was no intention not to provide summer activities for children, but the longterm of the program will benefit from the choices made this summer.
