    Very cool, but don’t forget about the waterfront park. I’ve always thought of that as THE park, but the new Knowlton one should be beautiful.

    *edit: caught it the second time around, durp.

    It seems that the city fathers know no bounds to the money that can be spent in Ellsworth. They continue to vote to spend the taxpayers money, even though times are tough for most of the citizens….Apparently they are not having a hard time paying their taxes, but it would appear that up to 1/3 of the people in town are behind on last years property taxes. Lots of great ideas, but when are they going to wake up and see that this is not the time to be spending money we don’t have??? This week alone….voted to buy a home on Oak Street for a new drive for the school, studys for the Knowlton Park, a full time Harbormaster to replace a part time Harbormaster, getting bids to take down the old sewer treatment plant,  hiring two new firefighters (paid for for the first two years, but what after that?) This has got to stop!

      It is time to vote for new councilors who won’t rubber stamp the city manager’s spend thrift ways. The $155,000 for the house on State St is just a drop in the bucket for what a new intersection and road to the high school will cost. The taxpayers provide a building for the YMCA which collects and keeps all the revenue for child care.
