What do you think? On Wednesday, Aug. 16, the Vermillion City Council reaffirmed a decision it made at its Aug. 7 meeting and decided to award bids for the construction of a new $1.2 million fire hall/ambulance facility in the city.
Citizens can't refer this decision to a public vote because it is an administrative, not a legislative, action.
If you were given the opportunity to vote, what would you decide:
* Yes, the $1.2 million structure should be built.
* No, the city council should explore less expensive building options.
Let us know how you feel. Write "Yes" or "No" on a slip of paper and mail it to The Plain Talk, P.O. Box 256, Vermillion, SD 57069. Or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will share the results of this unscientific survey with our readers.
