I can't believe the city hasn't taken this street into the city to maintain before now. They getting at least $10,000.00 a year from these residents in CITY Tax. This doesn't include the vacant lots. City Tax is also paid on these. All these new homes including the newer ones in Meadowbrook, where is all of this money going? I guess some of it will go towards the new salary of $50,000.00 plus for the new mayor. What a joke? This SMALL town never ceases to amaze me.

They are trying to make themselves look and Sound Big in the Eyes of the Public but anyone that knows anything about Railroad Crossings knows they cannot Accept ownership of any Railroad Crossing because Railroad Tracks and Crossings Are Owned By the Railroad and it Really is Against the Law to Walk or Cross them without Proper signals
