About a year ago a woman told me she would love for us to have a Putt Putt Golf Center. She drives to Newton with her son. I wonder how many more people drive to other towns for entertainment, have a wonderful time but feel robbed afterwards on the amount it cost them in gas, food, and entertainment.
One more thing before everyone reading this goes back to what they were doing.
In the past ten years that I have moved back to my home town, I have heard things like; “Why doesn’t our town get restaurants like, Wendy’s, Long John Silvers, or clothing and shoe stores?” Now that I think about this question, I’ve heard the same rumor back in high school on why. I believe this could and should be answered by our City Officials.
The people in and around town want answers, they have ideas, and we have seen what our citizens can do when we help each other. I wrote this to help get these ideas and questions out because this is what people are talking about, want to know who’s listening, and want to know what can be done. Is there something like a “free auto site” where people can share their opinions and concerns even if they live outside the city limits?
I could be wrong, but sounds like our community wants to have an input before City Council makes a decision on spending money. We all want the best for our town and want to see it grow. One way is to stop the rumors on why we can’t and communicate how we can. Thank you for your time.
