Citizens’ Voice: Dec. 7

“The concept of building housing without parking is unrealistic. Teachers and firemen own vehicles. They will simply park in adjacent neighborhoods, further clogging our streets.” “The solar panels at the government building save such a large amount of money that it will take 57 years to break even. Our commissioners[…]

“So the city has purchased new diesel buses = noise and air pollution. Why not electric? Why not a trolley? I would much rather have the trolley train than the smelly, noisy Loop run through the neighborhood. The Loop really need to cut the hours of operation running mostly empty.[…]

“Want to complain about leaking oil? Look at the city buses. They leave oil at every stop.

“I found myself disappointed with this year’s Film Festival. Far too many of the films and documentaries had left-leaning agendas, whether overt or subtle.” “I’m confused. We shouldn’t have electric buses because Turkey Point is bad. Are we to stop using all electricity until Turkey Point is closed down? We[…]
