The Flat Rock Playhouse has mold. Is it the taxpayers’ responsibility to pick up $185,000 for abatement? The theater has gone through a figurative housecleaning, bringing in new management to get the outfit to live within its means. Now, the well-intending find themselves unable to pay for the neglect of their predecessors. Since I no longer live in Hendersonville, I say if the people value theatre enough, and think the problem is too big to solve with a good bleaching, then they can pay the $200,000 – because projects always have overruns, don’t they?
