It’s nice to see we'll have a younger member on the Portage City Council. Hopefully they will have a little more common sense than the current members.

I realize they are working with a lot of projects and not enough funds. Yet they still want to spend money every other year on alleys when our city streets are atrocious. I hope in the future they will start using our tax dollars to repair the streets first, considering that's where most of the people drive to get around.

The city asks us for input but then they do want they want anyway. Hopefully this will start to change. I had a lady from out of town tell me our city streets are in terrible shape. I let her know right away that she was right, but boy she should see our beautiful alleys.
