For those who complain…
Date posted - November 29, 2012
For those who complain about their community, church, school, when was the last time that you donated to it, time, money, labor, ideas? It seems that all they can do is complain when someone else is doing something, because no one else is.
When someone wants to start a business in town do you go to the SCDC and apply for the grants that are available, or the help that they can give you, and do you have a viable business plan. Money will not be handed out if there is no return on the Investment. Has anyone even noticed that our population went up, and school enrollment is up? Has anyone noticed that the tax levy percentage has been going down, but the valuations have been going up and appreciating? Has anyone noticed that the budgets are always in the black? Has anyone noticed that there is an ongoing updating of water, sewer, and streets, to get everything back into shape? Has anyone noticed that the moneys spent are almost always along with grants, for example the money spent at the airport is offset by money from the FAA and the city only pays about 10%? Has anyone noticed the houses that are being built, and the houses that are getting grant money to remodel and improve energy wise?
And then the highway 18 corridor updating which is ongoing, and the new business that are being built, and the marketing of the old buildings. It’s time to keep up with the news, the city letters and meetings, instead of listening to Rumor Control at the coffee shops. There are alot of people that are on committees and volunteering. All meetings are open to the public.
Hope to see you at one.
