The issue of Beacon Avenue in Sidney becoming a two way street is certainly becoming a polarizing issue. I suggest strongly that instead of referendums (at big costs to us the taxpayers) we simply wait for one year until next year’s municipal elections.
The world will not cease if the Town and council simply shelve the issue for that year and let the concerned groups put out their message either for or against it.
Quite simply, at election time next year, the voter can ask a candidate for a Yes or No on their stance on the matter and vote accordingly. Majority wins.
Just hope you don’t run into a debacle that was the scene for a council slightly north and west of Sidney. One can pretty much guarantee a strong voter turnout as well for a change.
This would also be helpful in giving candidates a chance to make their voices heard on other matters as well that are also important to our municipality.
