It would be so nice if The Globe ran some articles about how the shutdown affected OUR people, businesses, and projects of Nobles County. Actual interviews with stories with real names. The People need to be better informed as to what will be coming from this budget. How it’s affecting our friends, family and neighbors.
I take it no one want’s to have the snow pile up on the roads based on comments of such last year but where is the city supposed to get the money for that?
It doesn’t grow on trees. It’s either going to mean plowing will be less if there is as much snow as last year, or local taxes or property tax will go up. Or maybe even a surcharge similar to the street light charge on your energy bill. Or do you expect the plow operators to work for free once the budget has been used up? People expect these services. When the snow falls, they wan’t to be able to get out of their driveways and alleys. They need to get their children off to school so they can go to work. Where’s the $ going to come from once the budget has been maxed out?
Republicans sit atop their high horses calling for no new taxes and apply their Draconian slash and burn approach to the budget, and smile smugly and give each other high fives as they kick the can down the road to the local level and services suffer or local taxes go up and guess what happens next State budget time? It’s worse then now because they robbed from Peter to pay Paul.
That is not the proper way to handle a budget. Not a government budget, a business budget or a personal budget but that is what they did.
Or I suppose you can blame Oberloh and the the city leaders telling them they get paid too much and should offer their salary to cleaning the snow off your street. Or even blame Dayton and the Dems who fought to raise taxes on the wealthiest in MN to increase revenue for the budget. Whatever.
