Conumdrums all Around...
Conundrum-Any puzzling question or problem. (**New World Dictionary of the American language)
There appears to be a whole slew of these "puzzling questions" in these here parts all of a sudden.
For instance, on the January 13, 2206 post on CM Price's blogsite entitled 15th Street http://stevepricemyvision.blogspot.com/ he discusses the ongoing travails of the infrastructure surronding the rail crossing at 15th & Elm and then poses the question "Did we, when the water main broke at this location back in August, take a proactive or reactive approach to this problem?
My answer to his query is a question. why did you not Steve, along with your fellow councilmen, take a proactive stance on this and other infrastruture maladies by voting for the proposed 19% sewer rate increase which would have, long term, given the city the rainy day fund money to address these ongoing disasters in the making?
Or another case in point, In his current post entitled Points to Ponder, he points out that with a smoking ban looming on the horizon, New Albany stands to make $3,221,846 from Cigarette Tax Distribution in 2007.
Now here comes my question. Steve are going to vote for the smoking ban thus causing the city to loose that 3 million plus dollars per year that could further add to our rainy day fund for such emergencies as train wrecks or vote against it and appropriate those monies toward updating our infrastructure?
Note that I was going to pose these question to him via email on his blogsite but alas, I can't get to his email address. I guess E Blogger is having problems again!
Ah well, such is life in Nawlbany!
