I think the people that live their and care for their homes are not the problem, but the people who think that someone will come and invest into a town the people do not support or want to collectively invest in, is wishful thinking.
As a matter of fact I have thought of opening a few businesses there because I can see the possibilities, but with an attitude of cut cut cut, that would not help business.
There was a time not so long ago, Lake Geneva was in disarray...in the 80's and early 90's but city decided to invest into cleaning it up and investing into new streetscapes and business came.
Nothing is free. Business comes with revenue, jobs and also investment which needs to be partnered with the community of people that live there.
A small tax increase to rebuild a downtown could lead to better home values, sales, business, jobs and revenue.
Scott Walker's policies have cut at the commons such as education, local revenue, and government jobs and pay and has ensured WI at 50, DEAD LAST in America for future growth. During the recession Doyle had us at 11th out of 50 when he left office.
Cutting only cuts future possibilities and growth, how long will it take and damage done to our state before people see facts over fiction. Look Around at nothing.
