Things that will happen when voters stay home

Patrick Nabors, Morgantown
Parks and green space are nice. I guess it would be nice for the city to own the Haymaker woods property. But with White Park less than a mile from one side of the property and Marilla Park less than a mile from the other side, I don’t know if it’s necessary.
For certain, we should know how we will pay for it. Raising taxes or fees to fulfill some fantasy wish list is irresponsible at best.
That being said, it is the responsibility of every government official to ensure that we don’t pay above the appraised, or otherwise determined fair market value for anything.
These are the things that happen when 15 percent of registered voters turn out to vote.
