More responsible sense

Carlisle, PA

What more borrowed money and not blink an eye for the citizens of Mount Joy township? Please fellow citizens and residents get out to the Mt Joy meetings this week. Why is there a change to the Rec Board meeting in time and date from Dec.1st to this Tuesday, Nov. 17th at 6PM? What is the agenda? Let’s rethink all these greenway plans and ideas which are not well thought out nor desired by many. What happened to the revisions promised and citizens’ inputs asking for specific changes? We need to get to the Supervisor meeting on Thursday Nov. 19th at 7:30pm. Why not slow down and seek fiscal responsibility and common sense with the budget for 2010? Why borrow $500K or $2M more for now or in this economy? This will put us in more debt and longer - raise taxes in the long run. At the last month’s meeting, one supervisors said we will always be in debt as a township. WHAT no one caught that? Well, the 2010 budget will ensure such nonsense. Stop this spin out now! Attend the meetings this week and in December. Why don’t WE pay off the principal of the debt loans - they have already? Why mortgage our neighbors’ and children’s futures, just because we can? What? With TWO land preservation programs in the Adams County area already, this THIRD program is unnecessary and seems unwise in the current economy. This ain’t - 2005 nor 2008! Balance the budget now and spend only funds received and then with wise stewardship. Enough already.
