I can not believe Pat and the puppets still will not admitt that removing the dam was the cause of the flooding. It is bad enough that we have this flooding but to have the biggest bunch of fools running this Town is bs. Wake up you foolish idiots

Don't you think it's time you all move to Florida? Sorry for all your problems, but it comes with the territory - the tundra!

Hmmmm...maybe more research should be done prior to removing infrastructure holding back large amounts of silt and sand? Come on people! I am sure the cost analysis did not include any of this.
