Start with facts on potential water company purchase
I want to thank the city of Peoria for giving residents an opportunity to offer suggestions through the online "budget challenge." The City Council may find a gem or two among the dozens or hundreds of ideas that come forward.
However, in at least one circumstance, the "budget challenge" offers Peorians a false choice. Peorians are asked to choose one of these options:
• Spend $1 million to study issues surrounding the buyout of the water company.
• Status quo: Do not pursue a study of the buyout of the water company at this time.
The numbers are flawed.
