There is no argument that the council can do what it wants – what it thinks is right. But we think that it should at least be forthright in that process.
We believe that the council failed to be so in its announcement that it would put the issue of the skate park on its agenda on Aug. 19. We – along with almost everyone else – thought that this meant an honest reconsideration of the project.
Apparently we were all wrong as the county is going ahead with work on the site. Now, they say this is no big deal, that little money will be spent. But it gives the huge impression of in-your-face and outright dishonesty.
And once your feet are in the water, it is far easier to go all in.
We simply fail to understand why the council cannot see the divide this has created in the community – or if they do see, why they don’t seem to care. We just don’t get it as each and every member of the council is an outstanding person. Where is this disconnect coming from?
Mike Wismer was right when he said that being against the library site is not being against the skate park. But like many people, we feel that the process was not followed correctly.
