City needs to ask what people using businesses want with downtown


OTTUMWA — I would like to comment on a letter to the editor published on Feb. 27. I totally agree that River Hills Clinic is essential to the downtown area. We are spending thousands if not millions of dollars to fix up the downtown area, for what, big empty buildings? Keeping the clinic downtown only brings in more people, more people that need health care.

Job Service was also a big mistake by moving. No one is thinking about what these moves have done to the common people that use these businesses. Ask THEM what THEY WANT, not the big shots that think they are doing things right.
