Speakout: May 18, 2014

  Run-down

How ironic and hypocritical: The city council is cracking down on run-down properties. The former Clare and Carl’s building on the famed city waterfront has been an eyesore in disrepair since spring 2011. How about getting your house in order?

Taxis

While on the subject of taxis, why do they have selected parking spots in prime areas? It is not like there is a train station letting out hundreds of passengers. If I can’t park in their spots, they shouldn’t park in public spots. 

Opportunity

Too bad businesses in Plattsburgh won’t be benefiting from a completed waterfront for the 200th anniversary of The Battle of Plattsburgh. A good plan was in place with representation of several Chamber of Commerce small businesses. All businesses in the city will suffer from the missed opportunity.
