I loved the bullet-pointed Viewpoint from Thursday regarding “feeding at the trough”. It got me thinking:
How many jobs does an empty lot produce?
How much property tax does an empty lot generate?
How much sales tax does an empty lot generate?
How many people would visit a community because of an empty lot?
Why does the Viewpointer support empty lots?
Yeah, yeah, yeah....we get it Tim Johnson. You don't want something good for our city, you just want to make sure your business doesn't suffer...Let the council make the right decision....hopefully the council understands that most of the community knows this is a good move for the city.
