Traffic circle
Monday, April 23, 2018 - 10:35 am

So let me get this straight…instead of fixing the terrible roads crumbling around Potsdam. Our wonderful board wants to put in a traffic circle. This town can't stop people from driving down the parking lane on Main Street, how do you think you are going to get them safely through a traffic circle? I get that certain influential members of this community might think it inspired thoughts of old world grace. But seriously, this is yet another money leech brought to us by the same folks who brought us the powerless dam. Clarkson and the New York Power Authority will benefit from that money pit far more than any taxpayers. There seems to be a pervasive delusion that the regular folks of Potsdam are wealthy enough to afford these ridiculous gimmicks or to placate the desires of those not making an equal contribution. Time to get real before there is no tax base left in Potsdam. Meet our needs before your frivolity.
