Candidates Say Water, Sewer Should Extend to I-94
The big question is how to pay for it, they said at Thursday night's candidate forum.
Development is a hot topic in the Caledonia Village Board election, and candidates had plenty of opportunities to give their views during Thursday's forum sponsored by the Racine Taxpayers Association.
Here's how candidates responded to the question of extending sewer and water out to Interstate 94, and how they would pay for it.
Richard Frazier would support extending sewer and water, but only if the tax base supports the cost of it.
Kevin Wangggaard said he would support the infrastructure improvement because not having sewer and water puts us at a tremendous disadvantage.
David Prott said he would support it, but that it needs to be done in a responsible way. "I don't think we should build it and people will come... we need commitments from businesses."
Ron Coutts said he would support it, but not right now because the economy is still on shaky ground. "We don't have land and money to give..."
Bob Bradley said he totally supports bringing water and sewer to the I. "If you don't put anything in the ground, you won't have anything anyway."
