The council doesn't even know what these two projects are going to cost, and they don't have a back-up plan if (when) stuff comes in over budget, yet they proceed with $17M in bonds anyway? That's just sloppy financial stewardship and I think we should be able to expect more from our council members. I guess they're taking a lesson from Washington on how to run the checkbook.

The city is borrowing about $1275 per citizen to pay for its pet boondoggles. Money surely does grow on trees in Marshall.

Agree with Mr. Bayerkohler, the ice arena has a higher priority than ball fields.
