STRP all over again - SWALE TREATMENT REPLACEMENT PROGRAM. While I don't have a dog in this hunt (my swale is grass), I am tired of a small group of people telling everyone else what they need to spend their money on to further their own "vision" of what this Island should be. Mackle Park is still in the budget out to 2016 to the tune of $5,625,000.00. Also out to 2016 is $2,500,000.00 to develop a special event area. $2,500,000.00 to put up a band shell. Another $1,000,000.00 to further develop Veterans Park. $700,000.00 more into bike paths. $300,000.00 to renovate Leigh Plummer Park. The list goes on and on ad infinitum.
Do we all really need all this stuff? Who makes this stuff up? Whoever it is, they need a reality check. Then they need to go far away.
