apparently, the city plans to drain lake Wichita and then excavate it to make it deeper, to which I say "Excellent idea!"

The part that strikes me as relevant is the part where people always said "why dig out a dry lake?" and then the reality that now it has to be drained sinks in, where we could have had a deeper lake better able to sustain water within future droughts... And not have to drain it! The nerve of some people, they think their opinion is worth speaking... Well some of us actually plan for the future, hell we even have a good idea what it will hold.

That's all for now, bye, haters.

native Wichitans likely have their best interest in mind, which in turn helps the entire community.

I really don't think the Indian tribe was asked. But it doesn't matter what "native" Wichitans want. What matters is what RESIDENTS want. That would be tax payers in one form or another, who are guaranteed representation whether we moved in here or not, whether you like it or not. And this is a MORONIC idea to proceed now of things, when the damn lake was ALREADY bone dry enough for HOW LONG??? People were DRIVING across the damn thing from Lakeside, and now that it's full of water you nitwits want to waste all that and send it downstream and start digging now. How flipping stupid.

Your attitude is why native Wichitans should care because of idiots like you who move in. It takes time and money to finish a project this large. We native Wichitans parents, grandparents, and great grandparents built this town. Show more respect or move on.

Here's the thing: it would have been better to dig it out beforehand, but it is in the best interest of the city to dig it out now while resources are available so as to prevent a drought from having such an impact again. I mean really, do you want to wait until the next drought to dig it out? It has to happen eventually. I understand not all residents take their civic responsibilities seriously, but if you care so much about people driving across an empty lake then show some character and care about the future of the city in which you reside.
