Common sense required

One, the museum leaks, so fix the leaks. Two, the old library is architecturally designed, so keep it.

The blind visions of past politicians remain to haunt us. One, the museum leaks, so fix the leaks.

Two, the old library is architecturally designed, so keep it.

Three, the new library is a roaring success, particularly when a train barrels by, shaking the foundation during quiet time.

Now, we seem to be in a bit of limbo awaiting a core review.

One, use newly acquired city property and do not purchase any more because it is too expensive.

Build another parkade on the east side of 32nd Street to service the new library and others.

Guess what, however, the railroad will likely always be there because sometimes trucks cannot negotiate right angle turns and understandably.

One second makes a difference there.

I was passed by a car once at Coldstream Ranch and the driver went straight into the level crossing light pole.

Thankfully, they were all uninjured.

With  all consideration, trains can be equally efficient because they transport much more volume.

There are some industries left that need trains.

Two, all of the various properties owned by the city are used for parking, not a very cost-effective business.

Create jobs, put up buildings and green spaces, or whatever the majority of people would allow.

Three, use money wisely.

There is a limit in reality to the amount of taxes available in a small city even though it amounts to millions of dollars annually.

We do not mind paying taxes but please have common sense about how to spend them.

I have always liked the diversity here and generally the town seems to be heading in a positive direction, so carry on constructing a fine city.
