"You and your staff are making budget cuts everywhere," the sign says. "How can you allow (the state) to waste money trying to force these residents out of their homes? These people want to pay their taxes and be left alone and live where they choose!"
I have to agree but I am sure for different reasons than the town residents.
What business does the state have using taxpayer funds buying dangerous property? What business doe the state have spending taxpayer funds forcing citizens to sell property they do not want to sell?
I agree with the sentiment above the states have precious little money laying around that they can afford to spend it willy-nilly on property that can not be used for any useful purpose. And if they do it would be better to cut taxes so that the people can put those funds to their own purposes.
Polished hardwood floors, in my opinion, are much “warmer” than wall to wall carpeting. You may vacuum the rugs regularly but after a while, you just don’t know what gets lodged in those carpet fibers. At least with a hardwood floor, you can scrub it clean and is shines!
