OUR VIEWPOINT: Freeport Auto Stores Ordinance Needed | Opinion

There are two important reasons Freeport City Council erred in its decision last month to drop its new ordinance governing repair businesses just two months after it was put on the books, resulting in a bad image of the city.

The first was that it makes elected leaders look weak, ready to turn around whenever someone raises objections to their decisions. The second is that it leaves an unresolved issue that reinforces the perception many people have that Freeport is a β€˜trash’ city, full of dilapidated buildings and broken down cars in commercial and residential communities.
