Could see this coming!

When you decide to borrow money for a fire truck, computers, lawn mowers, then buy an expensive and not needed new parking system this is what happens. The City of Lake Geneva is no different then the federal government and most of the public. They can't stay with in their means. I live just outside the city limits and drive down town for lunch or dinner at least 4 times per week. I shop at the local stores when I can and support all sity wide functions. I am not sure I will be able to afford coming down town as much as in the past and unfortunately this will only hurt the local businesses that I support. Instead of finding ways to spend money that we can't afford what about trying to find a way to bring in additional businesses to increase the tax base. Hillmore is a perfect example of the city councils inept management and lack of vision. There were ideas in the past that were on the table but the city council made it impossible for anyone to take a chance and try to develope the land. Why is it the council believes we need to stick it to the tourists and locals who want to spend their money here when there are viable alterantives by making Lake Geneva more business friendly? What ever happened to fiscal responsibility?
