    Hurry up and finish this project! I can’t wait to drive along this new street and look at all the vacant buildings! Fun! The 5 to 7.4 million dollars are surely needed for this one street! All the other streets in Cumberland are in dandy condition!

    I agree with Deb, What a waste of taxpayers money. No matter what grant or fund it came from, taxpayers money created it. Then, you ran a local business man away from downtown after being there 20 years?? What are you thinking? Maybe you can sit with Grimm (thank goodness he is GONE)and devise other ways to waste money and allow the town to literally crumble.

    If there was an award for wasting taxpayers money, these FOOLS could retire the trophy!
