To Heath Select Board,
I am concerned by the efforts of the Grans and their supporters to continue delay of discussion regarding the Task Force report. Their reasoning is that we must face our fiscal crisis first. I disagree. Good fiscal planning requires a balance of understanding your current needs, your future hopes and your fiscal capabilities. The report from the Task Force goes a long way in helping the town understand its facilities strengths and weaknesses, as well as laying out some potential options for the future. Before individuals make decisions regarding the future, they need to understand the present. Therefore, offering residents an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the report is one essential step in moving forward. Continued delays are allowing inaccurate information and beliefs to become entrenched. You have recently received a letter from Margaret that outlines some reasonable considerations for such an informational meeting. It is time to take action.
