To The Editor:
New Street in Norwood is a dead end street. Harrison Street in Norwood is also a dead end street. If you draw a line between these two dead end streets, it is about a 1/4 mile straight line with a burned down school building on one side and an open athletic field on the other side. No tax paying entity on either side of this line.
Yet, I understand that our village mayor and his Board of Trustees are proposing connecting these two streets together with not only a paved street but also water and sewer service.
Its time that we, as taxpayers in the highest taxed village in one of the highest taxed towns in St. Lawrence County, ask questions and get honest answers to our questions.
Its time that local newspapers stop relying on public officials from these governing bodies in supplying their newspapers with just one side of the issues.
My question for this paper to investigate, to my tax-paying village government and my tax-paying town to answer; Why is this New Street in Norwood being considered to be built?
If our elected representatives do not want to answer this question, I will. However, I doubt if the local media will print it.
