Trees, other issues
I'd say that I have to agree with Bill Frasier about hiring someone to look at the trees in Norris Park. I don't believe that all 44 trees are so bad that they need to be cut down.
Who's in charge of spending the money in McCook? Make some smart decisions and spend it wisely. Even if you plant new trees there, it will be years before they provide the wonderful scenery and shade the current trees do.
I understand the need to take out the rotten trees, but Norris Park is known for those full grown, mature trees and it just wouldn't be the same if they were all gone. There is just something about seeing a tree being held up straight by wire that is unattractive.
Like Bill said, McCook has plenty of reserve money, so put it to good use. Fix the streets like they are supposed to be instead of patching them every spring.
Fix the sidewalk so we can walk on those. There are plenty of sidewalks so why do we need a walking trail? To attract more people to McCook? To encourage healthy living?
Most of us can walk just fine on sidewalks. Besides how are you going to get to the walking trail? Walk?
It's all just thoughts, think about it.
