While the PlattInfo kiosks around Plattsburgh are supposed to offer information to tourists their screens remain blank. Due to the agreement made to secure funds for the kiosks the units have to remain in place -- despite being dead -- for a specified time period.
Actually one of the kiosks isn't completely dead. The one on City Hall Place near Macdonough Monument is humming, apparently drawing power. You can distinctly hear the humming when standing behind the kiosk. A small energy vampire wasting electricity and taxpayer money.
|Just humming along, not singing a song,|
bye, bye, money.
How many more useless hums will be bought with the $10 million grant awarded to the city?
