"we" will need another increase in our sales,property and all other taxes for all the groups that will be coming out of the woodwork for money now. Minot's our form of wealth re-distribution in action.

Every family reunion held in Minot is an "enterprising" activity and each person co-ordinating such an activity should ask for tax money to be returned to him/her under the current definition being used by the city council. "Returning" the money to the taxpayer would require a check be sent to each person paying into the tax fund. Ryan High School is PRIVATE. If they want a new gym floor, they can raise the money via fundraisers. Curling Club? really? Why can't they raise their own money? But, of course they bring thousands of people into Minot every year. (sarcasm) Another park in Minot? great idea--is the Y going to maintain it, repair it, clean it or are they going to demand the city park district to take on yet another park? The only one that is truly a community endeavor is the Commission on Aging whose door is open to every single older citizen of Minot and the surrounding area. Blake, Bob and others who voted yea are breaking the law.

Spending other people's money is easy.

Alderman Moen, pushed her agenda working at the YMCA saying she got approved so much money for a new park. Really? you need to open the YMCA up to everybody in town as some employers don't have a special for memberships. Opened a can of worms that should have been left alone. Really Aldermen, once again you can't heed the Mayor's words? It's disgusting.......You should do what other towns do for infrastructure building. You place a tax on Restaurants and you build one thing then transfer it to another cause. Now you really have outdone yourself.......

Accepting public money should open Bishop Ryan school up to anyone regardless of religion, sexual orientation or anything. From this point forward the only requirement for enrolment should be the ability to pay the tuition. This latest scam by the city counsel shows the need to replace the large majority of these self serving people. I went to a city counsel meeting a while back and it looked like monkeys playing pool with a football.

I have little good to say about our city council after they allowed mobile homes to move into the flooded neighborhoods. They all need replacing as far as I can see. They do not have the people at heart. Not sure who they are serving but it isn't us.
