Letter about unnecessary spending on Hillcrest Drive ...

Posted in Rushford Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Last fall, the City of Rushford had no plans to do any work on Hillcrest Drive, as there were no problems. Now suddenly, a few months later, Hillcrest Drive is a piece of “Rotten cake” and there are still no problems. How did it get so bad so fast, and there are still no problems. It seems the engineer and the city council wanted to spend more of the taxpayers’ money and Hillcrest Drive was selected, even though there has never been a problem. If it is done, we can expect to get unnecessary special assessments up to $30,000 or more, depending on the size of our lot. What a tragedy. More than half of the residents are retired and living on a fixed income. Some of the assessments may equal one-fourth or one-third of the value of the home. If the engineer or a city council member lived on Hillcrest, no doubt this would not have been a problem. I doubt very much if the oath the city council members took when they accepted the office would allow for this kind of reckless spending of taxpayers’ money. After all, there is responsibility that follows an elected office. This Hillcrest “Rotten cake” is much more serious than thought to be. Maybe I should contact an attorney so we could find out what is really going on. Think about it.
