Tonawanda News — If you believe these people who keep writing in and maybe it is Mayor Soos himself. That keep writing in to tell us that ex-mayor Soos was responsible for all of these projects that are now in effect. My question would be, how come he never got anything going?

To the taxpayers in the City of Tonawanda, I am glad there is a no vote on the houses up on Little League Drive. Why should they get cheaper taxes because somebody says they are going to fix the streets and they’re going to plow the snow and all that. I bet within five years, the city will be doing all the work for them. We taxpayers have to make up the difference in taxes. Your taxes are going to go up higher. So 15-20 years from now, we’ll all be dead or in a home who knows. Let the city worry about it then. Right now they shouldn’t let anybody have it for less than 100 percent. Everybody else has to pay a 100 percent, why not them. Please vote no, don’t let it pass. I’m glad Carleton Zeisz has changed his mind for the time being.

If you live in North Tonawanda on East Robinson or Wheatfield between Oliver and the Twin Cities, there are clearly posted no trucks over 5 tons. Yet, tractor trailers still go down those streets. For you homeowners, when your sewer lines collapse or your water lines get damaged, it’s from those heavy trucks driving down the street. Call the police when there’s a tractor trailer on the street cause they are not allowed to be there. It’s also why we need to keep repaving it. The road is not made for tractor trailers and the police should be ticketing those truck drivers.
