To the editor:

I wholeheartedly agree with what my fellow neighbors voiced in the latest edition of the Brookhaven Reporter [Aug.9–Aug. 22]. I wasn’t aware when I voted “yes” to the city that they would spend our hard-earned taxpayer money on lawsuits and lost causes! If that were the case, I would have changed my vote! Why run off a revenue source that bothers no one?

As I’ve talked to many people, they all agreed we would rather spend those funds on potholes, sidewalks, code enforcement, general improvements and overgrown weeds on the roadsides. I’ve not been very happy on how the city is looking these days!

I suggest council take a hard look at what a majority of what the citizens want instead of what may be an agenda of a few.
