      It would do well to utilize the Avtex building for use as a new Police Station. Also, the Morgan Ford bridge is long overdue for an update. Why risk lives if it can be avoided. The main thing I wanted to comment on though is the South Fork Bridge Park and Ride. How anyone came up with that idea is beyond me. What a mess that would be!!!!
