To the Editor:

Personally, I am happy about the current plan to leave our DPW at its present site. I also like utilizing the current site for a new municipal complex.  This makes a lot of sense. A new or upgrading of our library remains to be carefully studied.

My main question is why do we want to get in the real estate business? Buying and selling of any property is not something our Town Council should undertake on the residents' behalf.

Is this something that will generate income for us? If this is true, we should look at other “profitable” opportunities.  There is always risk involved and our TC does not have the right to expose our residents to this possibility.  

We should let the buying and reselling or redeveloping of land to developers or realtors.
