The promoters of the Montrose Rec Center keep talking about how nice the facility will be and how many people are expected to use it, as if those are the most important issues.
Obviously potential usage is an important issue if you are proposing to build a very expensive facility. And we can all agree it would be wonderful to have such a nice recreation facility in Montrose – but not on the backs of taxpayers.
The majority of the families in Montrose can not afford more expenses, and neither can the struggling businesses. We need to be making it easier for families to meet their needs, and for businesses to survive, not harder.
We are back to the same old story, some people want something they can not afford so they think the rest of the community should help pay for it even though it will only be an unnecessary added expense to the rest.
