In other business, commissioners...Approved a roughly $40,000 appropriation to Frontier Health to match the $83,750 awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to fund a mental health and substance abuse grant.The money will go toward treatment of children from kindergarten through the fourth grade at Mountain View Elementary School who are diagnosed with mental, emotional or behavioral problems.

Hidden at the end of an aricle primarily about commissioners approval of an new apartment complex.$123,000 to study mental health issues for a few kids at one elementary school. If I had a child at that school I would question how those funds are spent.

It is wonderfully refreshing to hear someone actually informed, concerned and understanding of the responsibilities of the commissioners. It is too bad that the commissioners have a responsibility to understand what they are doing, including using judgement and history, to identify and the rectify cancerous situations. But alas, they do not either care or are ignorant. Perhaps we'll meaning,,,perhaps, but ignorant. I'm not discussing your issue directly, altho your points have great merit, but I am discussing the commission over the years in general. Just watch, for example, when the public works director or other choice Dept. Heads retires, I bet they build a monument for him, or dedicate a building in his name. LOL Perhaps a bathroom in the buffalo Mtn woods would be more appropriate. If you live in the City limits, run for Office. Just reach out for information. Most citizens don't understand or care, and, you can't fight city hall. They are accountable to no one. They are above the law. Sorry, kinda rambled on there, lol. And yes, downtown will flood again, and again, and again.
