Water dripping on a stove is a huge fire hazard. The flames from the stove and the water create a crazy combustible circumstance. I'm thinking that's about a $100,000 fix right there.
Rain water dripping on cooking food is a health hazard smart guy. I assume the Styrofoam panel over the stove is the fire hazard (and why does my auto correct think Styrofoam needs to be capitalized?).
Now I'm not sure what genius is using Styrofoam to block water over a stove, but that's a completely different issue (and no, it probably wasn't Scottie).

Funny how the stories change.
From the OP:
The request stated that WERF was currently raising funds to pay for a portion of the renovations
Don't look at me, I just quoted Henry's link. Apparently Henry found a link with more information than the OP. Personally I think whether they are overspending or not or if its tax dollars or private donations, it's a spectacularly stupid thing to get worked up about. Doyle spent $384K to renovate the basement in 2007. Almost $200K of that was tax payer money. Who cares?
It's like you guys see Walker's name in a news story and have a Pavlovian response to rant like a 2 year old. Save it for the stupid shit he does that actually matter.
