One thought on “Everything You Wanted To Know About The Downtown Reconstruction Project

  1. There are many more higher priorities but what would you expect from a bunch of dumb- dumbs with a sliver of a brain between them?
    Always squandering tax dollars on low priorities while the majority of the cities roads are a huge mess of potholes and ridges, the infrastructure falling apart, the homelessness, violent crime, burglaries, robberies, transient murderers and psychos running loose.
    Ya, sure continue the insanity, waste more money on the dead downtown where the terrified merchants are too afraid to even leave their doors unlocked during business hours.
