Cold Storage, Just Do It
by Bill Ayers
February 14, 2005
A Community Cold Storage is a
move in the right direction for several reasons. Others debate
that it's using our taxpayer's money and is a waste of borough
land. Have you seen the land? It's a pile of rubble that was
covered with toxic wastes before being cleaned up by a large
contractor that hired many local folk. The land is not currently
being used, or planned to be used for any valuable community
asset. The money to build it is a Grant. ("Grant"
means you don't have to pay it back.) The facility would open
opportunities for everyone who needed to store more frozen food
than they can fit in their home freezers, (have you ever got
your limit of deer or fish in the same weekend?).
The facility will benefit not
only all who use it, but will be a real property asset that contributes
to our community's tax base. I can't see where it could go wrong.
I say enough talk, let's do it!
