Dear Editor,

The KGB needs new offices, and this is a fact. The Reid Building is a health hazard, and this is a fact. We the citizens are going to pay for it, and this is a fact.

We the citizens need to have a say, OH YEA! We already did. We voted NO; we do not want to pay for a remodel of Schoencliff. This time we do not get to vote, so far anyway, we will just open our wallets wide and pay for the REMODEL, by about $85 more in property tax.

To the Borough Assembly I say, Veto, Stop, Repeal or by whatever not go forward with Schoencliff Debacle #2.

Let the citizens vote and this is what we should vote on: Do the citizens want to build a brand new building on borough land and pay with an increase in sales tax.

Oh, don t go yellin about increasing taxes yet, you need to be yellin about REMODEL! Property tax is paid by us citizens; sales tax is paid by everyone, including the 800,000 and more visitors each year (Cha-ching).

Let us start making good choices and move the offices temporarily, build a brand new building to own outright and start improving the history we are making now.
