Too much spent on courthouse

Sitting here reading the Altoona Mirror, I came across an article about the Blair County courthouse needing another $1.5 million upgrade on its air circulating system.

This courthouse is becoming a money pit, and believe me it won’t end with the latest wish list, which, of course, they will get because the people connected with the courthouse are the ones to vote on this loan.

People of Blair County can’t keep on paying on these loans.

Most of them are having trouble paying the new property taxes plus even more taxes that get laid on them every other year or so.

It’s not hard to predict that within another year our county/city government will come up with another $5 million useless project.
