What Should We Ask the Manhattan City Commission?

Posted by tmanney on September 3, 2008

We are told that the Commissioners have been asked to write individual letters of support for the NBAF so it seems timely for them to be sharing what has motivated their positions, what they understand to be the risks that go along with the benefits, and what it is going to cost Manhattan taxpayers.

Please share YOUR questions for the Commissioners by adding them as comments to this post by clicking on comment >> on the line below.  Then, if you can, attend the Town Hall meeting (above) and ask them in person and in public.

    Two major questions that have been raised are 1) What will Manhattan be required to do to provide utilities to an NBAF — especially, sewage and water? and 2) what will this cost the taxpayers? Please add your thoughts and concerns.

    Have there been any serious conversations with Mercy about their ability to handle any medical situations arising from the NBAF (I’m thinking mostly of employee accidents here, e.g.- needle sticks, accidental inhalation, etc.)? I know that Mercy is not a civic entity, of course, but the ability of a town to handle medical situations that arise from any activities in the town is a matter of public interest. Costs associated with being able to provide such services will surely be passed on to consumers, which will make health care even less accessible to those in lower income brackets, which in turn puts pressure of social services provided by the city and state.
