One thought on “Stormwater fees on tonight’s UG Commission agenda”

  1. Historic buildings in Wyandotte County have been systematically demolished by ungrateful people who want to remove all the history of the people that lived here and worked here. Our historic buildings are our history and our history included people of faith. This is what makes this act of destroying this church another wiping away of our history. Now we will experience more taxation against our Senior Citizens Widows Widower’s and Elderly who have limited income.
