Our local government and their actions appear to
be newsworthy of late. Hardly a day seems to go
by without mention in some form of local media.
Not long ago it was a proposal to put a total of
10 roundabouts downtown while changing two 1-way
streets into two 2-way streets.
We don’t know if it was negative comments from
citizens or the harsh realities of the budget,
but the plan is scrapped.
Then, just today, in the paper an article cited
another problem with the purchase of the Casino
by our city government.
If we remember correctly, the owner of the Casino
took legal action against a local non-profit that
holds the gambling license on said Casino.
We are not in the habit of making multi-million
dollar transactions, but also see no harm in
approaching other Casinos for information.
If you are a local, you know how it can be to
get a straight answer to some questions. All
questions merit a response but not an answer.
At times in appears to understand the reply
to a question one needs a degree in $10 words,
a Masters in Politispeak, and a Roget Thesaurus.
And why not go to an outside source for answers.
The Casino wants to sell, the City wants to buy,
and both have their own agendas.
We would think a better answer could be found
with an entity that has no car in the race.
Comments are always welcome.
