I THINK WE HAVE ALOT TO LOSE WITH SUCH A HIGH TAX INCREASE AT ONE TIME.
CLOSE THE GOLF COURSE OR TAKE A OFFER JUST GET RID OF IT.WAY OVER DUE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN RID OF IT AFTER THE 3RD YEAR LIKE CITY COUNCIL SAID THEY WOULD.SINCE THE CITY HAS NEVER MADE MONEY OFF IT.

not like those living in all the "McMansions" going up in the area can't afford it. Golly they might have to sell one of their 5 cars or rent out their 5 car garage to make ends meet. Heaven forbid their kids have to attend a Jr college. The horror!!!!

The speeding ticket revenue has fallen! They don't even run much radar any more. I think the gas prices have made people slow down, so, with declining revenues they are looking elsewhere. Now they look at seat belts, inspections, registration, and lights that are out. Time to put a stop to this! Call your representatives, the newspapers, the Governor, tv stations, etc. A protest to City Hall might help. Whatever you do, let the media know... they love to expose this kind of crap.

We found a very large tortoise today roaming the street of Briarcreek. If it belongs to anyone, you need to call Crandall City Hall. It was really beautiful, and must have been soneone's pet.

And now the grocery store is closing down. Just another indication that this old and mismanaged city is going bankrupt! Good luck....
