CITY MANAGER NEEDED  

As a resident that lives two blocks from the city limits while being affected by the city and unable to participate in city elections, this is the best-case scenario and might move us out of Mayberry status.

Nice, thoughtful article, and mail-in ballots should be mandatory considering the elderly and disabled that aren't able to schedule trips to the voting station.

BYPASS A TOP PRIORITY

A bypass for (State Road) 85 should be priority No. 1. There is no way it should take longer to get from (the) Shoal River bridge north through Crestview than it does to get from Fort Walton to (the) Shoal River bridge.

MORE FAMILY TIME

Please, please widen PJ Adams (Parkway) and give our military drivers more time at home instead of sitting in traffic after their long day.

This has been discussed since I moved here in 2004 and still (is) a huge mess.

If everyone affected by this traffic gives a heads-up to those that control these funds, maybe it will be funded.

NEW TAX PLAN DOESN’T ADD UP

In this glorious new tax plan, there is a lot of room for manipulation by the wealthy elite. They aren't paying as much for the badly needed roads and other infrastructure as the individual on all other tax brackets.

So, simplify all you want. It still won't add up in the end.

We as a people keep getting jerked around by the pocket book by those with more wealth than empathy.

WANT A TAX BREAK? DONATE

If (Glenn Mollette) is worried about how to live on that kind of budget, maybe, just maybe, he should try it on less than $70,000 a year.

I have no problem paying my fair share. If he wants a bigger tax break, donate some of that money to help people that are down on their luck and might need a hand getting basic needs meet.

POTHOLES ‘LIKE MAGIC’

Laurel Hill has used enough asphalt filling potholes over the last few years that they could have repaved Steel Mill Creek Road.

They fill one (pothole) and two more appear. It’s like magic.

STEEL MILL CREEK NEEDED FUNDING

The funding that resurfaced New Ebenezer should have been used on Steel Mill (Creek) in the first place. It's in far worse condition than New Ebenezer ever was.
