Letter: City and VFW need to come to an agreement

To the editor:

The inability of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 and the City of Craig to come to an agreement seems to defy common sense on both sides.

The land in question is worth more than the appraised value of $25,000. The city doesn’t want to pay a huge sum, but the VFW doesn’t want to be paid less than it is worth.

The solution could be that the city, Moffat County and the VFW work together to build a memorial for Medal of Honor recipient Major William Adams with a place for the names of every veteran from Moffat County who has served our country.

It should be as well presented as our museum.

The VFW should pay its own water and sewer bill and the city should pay the $1,000 per month lease, which is not overcharging the city and certainly not making the VFW a profit.

It’s just fair at a bargain price.
