Survey

The survey results are in with no surprise to me. Here is a quick review. In order the most important services are police, fire, and public works, meaning streets and paths. The least important service is recreation, meaning the sports fields because parks remain a high priority. Facilities like the Kedron Pool and tennis center must be paid for by user fees in the main. The pool needs to be converted to a seasonal pool or privatized. The tennis center needs to be privatized or eliminated. Currently our tennis courts, mainly the tennis center, cost over $1 million a year. People are willing to increase spending on police, fire, and public works. They are willing to reduce spending on recreation and the library. Spending on such things as the LCI and road studies must cease. Tax increases must cease, which will require a priority review of our spending next year. This all falls in line with what I have said for years and my platform, but not with the actions of this Council or three of the mayoral candidates. https://peachtree-city.org/566/Vide...4efNzO14gnRutfc-_qpnqltk67JoXkoefuYIVG3U6Tqck

It was interesting when Rory referenced the citizen committee survey I did as Mayor Prebor did not smile. he was the only supporter of Fleisch, Imker and Learnard on the committee. The survey results had a lot more responses than the current one yet paralleled the findings. Sadly, due to apathy, the elections have not agreed with that survey, or the current one. I hope there has been a wake-up call to reduce apathy.
