It is time that the City Council gets on board and supports the efforts of these organizations rather than making their efforts more difficult.
The adage “there is no gain without pain” is true. Supporting a tougher nuisance ordinance is not an easy decision, but it is the right decision.
Not everyone will like cleaning up their property and renting space to store their boat, trailer, RV and such. It must be done. Continuing down the same path is no longer an option.
The revitalization of downtown is happening now.
The City Council needs to get on board or the alternative is to vote in a supportive and progressive council and mayor this November.
We strongly encourage the City Council to do the right thing and vote down the nuisance ordinance as written at the third consideration.
