Is City Doing Enough for Business?

November 20, 2018

I would like to thank the mayor and City Council for raising our taxes. It is just what we want to hear around the holidays. It is just like the Democratic mantra; they have never met a tax they didn’t like.

Are you wondering why Fitchburg can not attract new businesses? Let’s see what the city has to offer. How is our infrastructure or available housing? How are our schools? How are the medical facilities? We also have very high utility costs.

We have to realize that not only are the businesses coming here, but also their families.

The fact that Peterbilt has moved in and not once has City Hall mentioned anything about it shows where their interests lie.

While it is nice to support the arts and nonprofits, we need businesses that will actually support our city. Depending on state and federal grants is just taking tax dollars out of one place and putting it into another.
