Prestwick project should borrow needed funding
To the editor:
It appears the Cape Girardeau City Council has already got in lockstep with the developer of the Prestwick Plantation project. The residents of Cape Girardeau are being asked to supply the money for the infrastructure through taxes, which would be generated by the assessments on the developed property.
This is not right. The developer should get funding from a commercial lender. The city cannot afford to fix a seat in a fire truck, and that is a sad case. Remember that the city is going to try to raise taxes again this fall.
Citizens, get the whole story from your city council. Pick up the Prestwick Plantation brochure. You will see what I am saying. Remember that all citizens pay taxes, and not all citizens are golfers.
