We don't see waste at the Municipality like Dr. Steinhauer's private bathroom in the new high school. But we do see a Commission so focused on managing millage, it is not maintaining our Community infrastructure, just like the "old" high school.

Recently, I heard the Municipality said the Tennis Center roof leaked because of the heavy rains. NO --- the Tennis Center roof leaked because it has not been maintained.

As hard as a Municipal tax increase it to handle, in large part because actions of the School Board, we must maintain our infrastructure. Gutting street reconstruction and/or deferring other required maintenance in favor of short sighted millage goals is --- short sighted.
