So this week they finish painting on the new water tower. But I don't remeber voting on what the picture should be. They spend tax payer money but we got no say so in what it should be. Why not paint "Gateway to Talimena Drive" or even somethng else. The people should have a right to decide these think not just the City Board.

I wonder what would happen if ALL the whiners that get on here and gripe endlessly about anything and everything got together and put their negative energy towards doing something good I bet we would be amazed at the positive things that could get done. Instead, though, you will continue to get on here and run the people down that do try to do good things. What is the old saying? "Change starts with YOU!"

It was discussed at the city council meeting and those in attendance had the opportunity to voice their opinion. Can you image if we had to get the vote of the people on every decision that was made?? We would never get anything accomplished. Think of this, every election we have cost the city around $1500. Our city budget would get eaten up fast and I bet we wouldn't get but a handful of people to come vote.

FYI- white was the cheapest color to paint the tower and we were able to pay for the dbl. T within the tower painting budget.

I think it is very poorly planned and executed, the words are not even straight and whoever thought up the idea that the background on the words should be black is just ignorant. Since the tower itself is white the background should have obviously been white as well. But that would make to much sense, guess who shouldn't have expected anymore as we see what the town is capable of deciding.

Whats been done is done, but some good points have been made by Kathy and tax payer. Preferably some community input should have occurred. Simply doing a news article in the local newspaper with a number, email or snail-mail listed for suggestions would have been great for involving the community... The smaller the decision group, the larger the backlash.

Good job. The tower looks great. Not everyone will agree on all things. Most likely if asked none would have any idea on how it should have been painted.
Main point is like wow said it is a great improvement for the town and its people.

I'd like to know where you are standing at in this town becuase from my point of view you either have to be right by the tower or on the outskirts of town to see it.
Good job
