As a resident of the city who has repeatedly sought help from the city for the erosion on my property from the storm water easement that lies there, I am hoping that if I am now going to be subjected to a fee, that those monies can be applied to a problem that has existed for more than 20 years. I would be interested in hearing exactly the pecking order for application of this new revenue source.
Cities around the country have formed a public utility to provide internet for their citizens that is fast and reliable. This could be a major drawing point for the economic development of our town.

I'd love to see more sidewalks, bike paths, etc. along our roads. I find myself walking on or beside busy roads, Country Club for example, with no sidewalk. It seems more and more cities are trending towards non-vehicular access and infrastructure. I'd be proud to see Harrisonburg lead the way in the valley.
