Letter to the Editor - Reader: Developer should pay

 


Dear Editor:

I would like to know why the taxpayer has to pay for the Pole Creek Cross Rd. That was not an existing street or a road between Greenwood and Fort Sidney roads before they started to develop that land. Therefore, since it is on land being developed, the developer should pay to have that road paved.

Why should the developer benefit from our tax dollars?

The city council has the city deep enough in debt without adding more to it.

Hopefully, the new city manager can help solve the spending problem the council has created.

I agree that the added taxes this year are a drain! However, paying for a road that leads to the hospital makes a lot more sense than paying for the incarceration and daily care for marijuana users, walking paths that I rarely see anyone use, and water parks that are only open 3 months a year.
