  1. I have enjoyed this website and hate to see it shutting down. Here is why I think it should continue. It does open debate on the ongoing issues that the village has. The Mayor is….well has been in office way too long. He doesn’t like Mike Lemon the Columbia Township Admin. so anything that is purposed is shut down right away. The Roundabout is a missed opportunity for the village and also for Columbia Township. The mass amount of traffic at that intersection every day is tremendous and is only going to get worse. Yet the Village has done nothing to even encourage talks with Columbia Township to look at a Roundabout. One day someone is going to get slammed at that intersection and really hurt then maybe the Mayor will open his eyes.

    The old Steam Plant building a work in progress? Really? I heard that that place was coming down in May. Haven’t heard one peep about it in any of the village meetings. The developer who is going to bill houses and condos there hasn’t moved any dirt yet. The building is an eyesore and worse it is a potential risk to kids that wonder in there. Over the years their has been deaths and injuries in that building. The building should have been knocked down years ago.

    I just hate to see this site fall by the waste side. Good info here and it gets the village residents focused on issues that haven’t been addressed by city council. I hope you bring it back next year.

    Thank you,
