I am wondering, with the new development, sports complex, uptown project, did anyone think about those of us who actually pay taxes in a town where it seems half the storm sewers work? I would like our fair city to look at some maintenance projects rather than making it look (pretty)! After all has anyone driven down 16th st lately, as well as some of our other streets? The storm sewers on half the streets won’t take water anymore and when it rains it floods the streets. I want everyone to understand I am not against progress, I actually favor it, however at the expense of the center mass of those who can’t afford a new house in the nice new part of town? Last I knew this was a town of 5000 people give or take a few, and it seems it still is so why then do we need such elaborate uptown things (the bumpouts suck by the way), new development, well…. Like I said I am well aware we need to move forward but maintaining the center infrastructure of our town is and always should be a must!
