I cannot believe the citizens of Port Clinton are going to sit back much longer without getting some answers from our administration about some of their actions.
While many of our citizens are still talking about how members of our administration could not be trusted with scrap pipe, well, they better start worrying about our street fund, and why our administration cannot keep their hands off of it.
Now, Mr. Benko talks about putting $250,000 into something he calls "investment in the future" (3-3-08). How long do you think that money will stay in his "investment in the future"? Remember, the future could mean tomorrow.
Our streets are in a disgraceful, disgusting and dangerous condition and Mr. Benko wants to take more money out of our street fund for his silly and unbelievable "investment in the future."
This money is desperately needed for our streets -- and now.
As for the future, money will not be a problem. Don't you remember last November when the citizens were told if we passed the rezoning of the Waterworks Park we would have money for our streets, our schools and our new sewers?
Our downtown businesses would be booming -- families would be moving into Port Clinton instead of out -- and there would be 400 dream jobs available.
Most of the voters believed this fairy tale and passed the rezoning.
I tried to tell the voters that if it passed the rezoning, it would be like giving our administration a signed blank check. There wasn't many who believed it then, but a lot do now.
If we allow this nightmare to continue at the Waterworks Park, I think it will be the worst disaster to ever happen to Port Clinton.
I believe our administrations only concern is for the business people and the tourists -- so citizens, let's get involved.
