No actually that would be one officer for every 66 people but I don't think that is true. They may have some part timers who fill in if someone wee out but not 9 full time people. Tom Payton stopped by my house the other day and one of the things we discussed was the police dept. He is a pretty smart fella. he believes the Police dept. needs to be left to the chief to run and the Mayor and Council should stay out of the decision making. Another thing he brought up was that the city does not have a female officer. What do you do if a female needs to be searched or whatever. Why not send the young lady who works for the dept. to school to be a certified officer and then if needed she could fill in. I thought it to be a good idea. It is time we had some one with some vision.

Mayor Conley has vision. He managed to destroy the historical square with all his vision. Now it is just another square like a thousand others throughout the state.

Isn't the square a real mess. Like trying to go through a maze. They are now starting on other streets. Don't know why the local people couldn't do the work.

Because they can't without a 100 percent cost overrun.
Locals have bled more then enough from the tax payers.

No dice. Born here, married here, had kids here, am here to stay. I bet you can't say the same. The square looks better than it did. Whether it was worth spending the kind of dollars that were put in to it certainly can be questioned. But most of the money came from grants, and, yes, before you say it, I know where that money comes from. But I'd rather our town have it than others.
