Letter: Hospital should be allocated empty land
June 8, 2012
To the editor:
Why doesn’t The Memorial Hospital get up in arms regarding the give away of the land next door to the fire district?
It would make much more sense if the college gave the land to the hospital for future expansion and also does away with any and all air problems from the proposed training center.
Hopefully enough Craig attended the meeting and attempted to persuade the college to change its mind and give it to the hospital.
As to all the reasons the fire district gives for needing a $1.5 million cement training tower when they have free access to one within 17 miles doesn’t make any sense at all.
Their main reason is having firelighters and a truck away from Craig when a fire should break out.
My question is, how many times has this occurred over the past 20 or 30 years? My memory says “zilch.”
The tower and the million dollar bucket truck are for bragging rights only.
