Letter: Is athletic complex land really a gift?
To the editor,
Following the Rosemount Outdoor Athletic Complex opinions the last few weeks, I wonder if the gift of $1 million for the Flint Hills land is really a gift to taxpayers who will pay more than eight times that million-dollar amount for the complex, plus amenities, built with referendum funds. Gravel roads are the only access to that area at this time. Will taxpayers later on be asked for more money for road improvements?
