Just saw in my newspaper yesterday that the City Council will be able to apply for millions in grants for downtown sidewalks!!

I wish my city would apply. Instead yesterday they voted to add a 5¢ per gallon tax on gas sold here.

The thing is, those grants only cover part of the cost. The rest gets paid for by us in city bonds, etc.

Many in the city are already objecting, saying we don’t NEED those new sidewalks in the downtown area.

I don’t think there’s much honesty in anyone in power anymore. If the money is there for the taking, they are gonna take it - needed or not - because if they don’t, someone else will.
