Dear Editor,

As we look at a new year, let us take time to consider our city's finances and those that take care of those finances. I hope 2018 finds our city in a stronger financial condition than it was at the onset of 2017. I hope our City Council is able to establish and maintain proper priorities in its use of our tax dollars and that it can successfully maintain and/or improve our primary city assets such as streets, water management systems, parks, cemetery, etc. I hope it can understand that there is very little, if any, discretionary money to spend on things not directly considered as city assets. I hope our City Council finds a new, wiser vision for spending tax dollars on non-city assets such as the daycare expansion project. $180,000.00 is a lot of money to donate when city departments suffer! I hope our City Council learns to listen carefully to us and not grease the squeaky wheel as it did in some cases in 2017. Finally, I hope our City Council realizes it must follow the wishes of the majority of its citizens, with few exceptions, if Reinbeck is to be a community that moves forward in the direction that represents most of us. I hope all of us have a wonderful year in our wonderful Reinbeck; a year that finds our city and school system in a strong and thriving condition.

Regards,
