Nothing wrong with city giving First Baptist funds for water project
Placeholder Image
Editor: This is a brief response to the editorial in Wednesday's Herald asking the city council to deny labor for the water requirements of the expansion at First Baptist Church. It appears to me that when the city assumes the monopoly for utility services it must make certain that these utilities exist or can be made available to the public, regardless of whether they are public, private, tax paying or tax exempt. All of these must pay for the utility, unless there are some that are getting them free that I do not know about.
