Sardinia has kept an eye on bottom line, says one resident
Tuesday October 29, 2013 | By:Clinton Salmon |
I had not intended to make any comments regarding the Nov. 5, 2013 election, but when a letter signed by a candidate’s wife and sister, indicating the current administration has shown total disrespect to the senor citizens, which is an unalterable lie, and point out the fact that the town has made available transportation, meals and a fire company for emergencies, for the seniors.
At a time when most towns have to cut back on various organizations, the town of Sardinia has maintained its assistance, money-wise. The comment about jeopardizing the budget with the tax rebate indicates that she is unaware that this program had been studied very closely and it leaves ample funds if and when they would be required.
Any fear over the mining district in Chaffee could be resolved by reviewing the requirements and all requested changes have to be approved by the town board.
I am wondering if the voters are told about a “gravel pit” project, calling for housing, water and other items. It appears that one of our candidates is working on this project with the owner of the property who has expressed his desire to have the town invest in this project.
The present town board has been very, very careful in protecting our tax dollars, but it could disappear if used for questionable investments. I would strongly suggest that all voters do a little checking and asking before casting their ballots.
