Several quotes in a recent Monitor made no sense and are worthy of comment.
First of all, the lead article concerning County Council’s decision to go forward with the Skate park.
Councilman (Mike) Wheeler: “We can’t find a reason not to put it where it’s located now.”
WHAT? In the very same article there are several reasonable reasons not to put it there.
Wheeler continues: “I’m not anxious to go to ballot. The same people who are against it will still be against it, and the same who are for it will be for it.”
What the heck does that have to do with the outcome of a vote? Maybe those in opposition outnumber those in favor by a 2-1 margin.
Councilman (Ken) Milder: “As councilors, we probably have a better assessment of what the community wants.”
Then why put anything to a vote? Council has a record of dumb decisions indicating that it does not have a better assessment.
Now we turn to Fran Berting’s editorial.
Fran writes: “While the numbers for the additional GRT and property tax revenues that be forthcoming from the development at 15th and Trinity can only be speculative at this point, some is better than none.”
Aren’t the current businesses on the property or moving there paying taxes?
