One thought on “My Turn: Put Winslow Way upgrades to a vote

  1. Lin makes a good point. I think we may sometimes feel a little too entitled to living like brand-new around the island. Now’s a good time to rethink that entitlement.

    Repairs before replacement is a frugal and thoughtful plan during a poor economy. It’s the sewer, for crying out loud. No one’s gonna see what it looks like underground.

    And making those who benefit most pay the lion’s share of repairs etc. seems only fair. How to determine that? A realistic LID makes sense to me.

    Look, I want Winslow Way to have their sewer upgraded as much as anyone—there are too many businesses down there which serve as community centers for all of us, such as T&C and Blackbird Bakery and Eagle Harbor Books. They do need the improvements.

    But let’s make sure we’re not mortgaging our grandchildren to pay for more than we need, and while we’re at it, let’s make sure the bill is paid fairly from only the most appropriate pockets.
