Shedding More Light

I neglected to mention the fact that, with respect to the gas tax monies (currently approaching $470,000), the Community Advisory Committee has actually in the works one more project.  While the Tyee Drive repaving is underway, the mechanics for a street light at Johnson and Tyee are being installed.  That particularly dark intersection will now be illuminated.  The gas tax monies will pay for the electricity to make that happen as an ongoing matter.

Surely, that is a use of the monies that will be beneficial and appreciated by pretty much all of us, despite the fact that this was not something, probably, that the community gave a thumbs up to in the Committee's survey of 'what do you want'.  Which is the whole point of representative government: the people whose responsibility it is to think through our community problems can do a better job of thinking than the vast bunch of us just milling around in our brains.
