Council Questions and Discussion
Pedestrian Crossing Alternatives Analysis
You cannot believe anything that will be said about public desire for sidewalks/crossings. The mayor is a master manipulator and a trained trickster who has tasked an employee to spend a great deal of time over the last 18 months to build project support within the business community. It is a well documented fact that the general public rejected her last sidewalk attempt by about 90%. If she and the business community want sidewalks/crossings to benefit the businesses then let them form an LID and pay for them. Oh, wait, they researched that and found that the benefit fell way way short of the cost. So the mayor, who wants to claim that she “got it done” just figures to put the burden on the public. She just won’t let a bad idea go. And with this council that is very business oriented, unless the public again says no resoundingly, she might just pull the con off. Public, Beware
Oh brother the blame game continues! There are people who want sidewalks in this town and stated that “everyone” does. No everyone doesn’t but these are the noise makers that won’t let it go! Ugh! I don’t want them-this is for those in the back! Can you hear me? There needs to be an alternative plan…
