An Easy One
Many things in my city commission life get complicated. It is a relief to occasionally come across a “piece of cake”. As the detective Hercule Poirot might intone, we should rest the little grey cells.
The easy decision I’m speaking of is to keep the “train set” intact and get local people to paint it. If all four pieces; locomotive, tender, combine and caboose simply stay put at the floodwall, this will pay tribute to our railroad heritage. That is the least we owe them. By doing the job locally with a retired VMV employee in the lead, I’m certain we can paint the train for less than $10,000. That economy is what we owe you.
I need a rest from complicated decisions; this one is just too easy to pass.
