Show Orchard City Town Council you care

Dear Editor:

Tonight after dropping my 7-year-old twins off at vacation Bible school I decided to go to the Orchard City Town Council meeting. Wow, was I surprised by the attitudes! Not only from many of the constituents who spoke to the board, but most of all from the board itself. For example, when asked if the town staff could simply add the schedules of business meetings and work sessions to the empty space on our water bill each month, our mayor responded that "the people don't care." So this is my plea - SHOW THE BOARD THAT WE DO CARE! There are some big issues being discussed that I am certain will impact each of us at some point. Allowing a few people with their own agenda to override the way of life that we have come to know and love here in Orchard City is inconceivable.

Please get involved. If you are unable to make it to the monthly meetings please write letters or call the trustees and/or mayor (their numbers are available on the town website). For those residents who are able to make it to the meetings, please do so. I think it will be very eye-opening to you, as it was for me, that some of our board members are out of touch with the people they represent.
