Squandering tax dollars

Dear Editor:

Carbondale, wake up!

We seem to have a town council that cannot make a decision, and is going to charge us/the town of Carbondale about $10,000 to hold a special election to determine the fate of the Village at Crystal River. Tell me, is the town that flush with money to be spending on this issue? How much money has already been spent on this issue with studies and focus groups?

We can all think we live in our own little dream world community, but we need a larger grocery store! And imagine the possibility of a clothing store other than secondhand where one might buy a pair of socks or undergarments?

This special election is crazy and a waste of good taxpayer money!
