   September 22, 2014, 12:45:48 PM  guest-32df: (Still 42D)

   September 22, 2014, 05:29:19 PM  guest-380b: its not the councils job to be involved in that.. its the councils job to judge the job of the city manager... they do not

   September 22, 2014, 05:29:42 PM  guest-380b: get paid.. well they do but nominally.. Brian has a very good salary and is paid to negotiate those contracts in a way that

   September 22, 2014, 05:29:52 PM  guest-380b: should be easy to explain to the council

   September 22, 2014, 05:30:53 PM  guest-380b: and its odd that the top private money spender down town is an engineer and from my understanding not the engineer on the 

   September 22, 2014, 05:31:04 PM  guest-380b: combining of the buildings.. seems a little off

   September 22, 2014, 05:31:48 PM  guest-380b: and yeah i talked to the guy that was going to open the indoor farmers market and thats not hearsay

   September 22, 2014, 05:31:58 PM  guest-380b: its not hearsay that opening a business in Forney is ridiculously hard

   September 22, 2014, 05:32:13 PM  guest-380b: and to me its not to much to ask that someone with an almost half million a year budget

   September 22, 2014, 05:32:29 PM  guest-380b: be able to do a job in which it can easily be explained to the public and not need consultants

   September 22, 2014, 05:32:40 PM  guest-380b: and lawyers involved on basic land and renovation deals.

   September 22, 2014, 10:16:39 PM  guest-567e: farmers market guy refused to put in a public bathroom.  That is why he told me he left.  Sorry but thats not too much to ask

   September 23, 2014, 07:14:52 AM  guest-4231: if you want edc money, of course there is a "process".  otherwise, get your permits and open up.  whats so hard about that?? 

   September 23, 2014, 11:54:21 AM  guest-0550: can someone open a full service car wash in forney, please

   September 23, 2014, 09:42:00 PM  guest-7707: It's coming, behind Aldi somewhere.  I feel same!!  I want to get it done here!!!  Kudos to Reagan commenting on Armani watts

   September 23, 2014, 09:42:35 PM  guest-7707: A hometown kiddo done good!!  Gig 'em!!

   September 24, 2014, 10:16:26 AM  guest-1c68: Anyone have suddenlink in Forney & what speeds are you getting

   September 24, 2014, 12:09:04 PM  guest-380b: if you are a small business selling vegetables... so much money in that  yes putting in a 10k bathroom is too much to ask... 

   September 24, 2014, 01:06:42 PM  guest-9c51: building codes require accessible restrooms for all businesses.  if he is renovating its required in any city.

   September 24, 2014, 01:56:29 PM  guest-380b: yeah i understand that...  but sometimes if you want to get something done you just get it done... 

   September 24, 2014, 01:57:12 PM  guest-380b: heard the best comparison for our city thus far... to Lewisville.. all the big money goes on the Highway and the Downtown 

   September 24, 2014, 01:57:16 PM  guest-380b: ends ups a ghost town...

   September 24, 2014, 03:30:21 PM  guest-804b: The money to rehab/restore downtown will never make sense 

   September 24, 2014, 03:31:24 PM  guest-804b: The question is do you want a rehabed  downtown

   September 24, 2014, 03:31:52 PM  guest-804b: If the money made sense the building owners would have done it years ago

   September 24, 2014, 03:32:41 PM  guest-804b: Or outside business developers would have come in and purchased the buildings and done it

   September 24, 2014, 03:33:23 PM  guest-804b: To do it and make it work is going to require EDC money and lots of it

   September 24, 2014, 03:34:21 PM  guest-804b: Many things will be found in each of these building that could not be forseen 

   September 24, 2014, 03:37:56 PM  guest-804b: As the decision to rehab these building are being considered it is important

   September 24, 2014, 03:38:36 PM  guest-804b: To identify a viable business to go there, one with a proven track record

   September 24, 2014, 03:39:20 PM  guest-804b: In old downtown areas, or one with a proven drawing ability

   September 24, 2014, 03:40:00 PM  guest-804b: The we can hope as these businesses thrive others will come along

   September 24, 2014, 03:40:26 PM  guest-804b: and want to tke on some if not all the rehab of other building downtown

   September 24, 2014, 03:42:20 PM  guest-804b: Then maybe just maybe we will have a downtown where people want to come even from outside Forney

   September 24, 2014, 03:43:45 PM  guest-804b: We will need additional parking and improved pedestrian street crossing

   September 24, 2014, 03:44:48 PM  guest-804b: The payoff is far down the road with increased sales tax

   September 24, 2014, 03:46:54 PM  guest-804b: It will not be easy and it will be expensive, time consuming, and require a quality engineering 

   September 24, 2014, 03:48:08 PM  guest-804b: company to do the investigating of each building and help decide 

   September 24, 2014, 03:48:40 PM  guest-804b: the best path. 

   September 24, 2014, 03:52:12 PM  guest-804b: I hope a master plan can be developed for downtown, target the busniesses for downtown

   September 24, 2014, 03:53:59 PM  guest-804b: then go after them, Forney should dive this not wait until someone come to us and we get all excited and dive head long

   September 24, 2014, 03:54:35 PM  guest-804b: in to it with a fool hearty half baked plan

   September 24, 2014, 05:27:12 PM  guest-380b: personally I would love to see a master plan for downtown.. and I have heard some very good ones.. much better than

   September 24, 2014, 05:27:27 PM  guest-380b: the original idea of just building a bigger city hall... the one we have is plenty sufficient

   September 24, 2014, 05:27:44 PM  guest-380b: the city should be modernizing the meetings so they are online and the citizenry can watch without being there

   September 24, 2014, 05:28:18 PM  guest-380b: I heard the idea of the old church being scrapped and making the downtown area a Nice Wedding venue... which actually would 

   September 24, 2014, 05:28:51 PM  guest-380b: draw people in... and IMO why the hell did the EDC go small with the Fire house.. Zanata is amazing however with basically

   September 24, 2014, 05:29:15 PM  guest-380b: a free remodel there was no way to put feelers out there and find something amazing... oh well of course not if you 

   September 24, 2014, 05:29:28 PM  guest-380b: are just trying to do business favors for long time friends and family

   September 24, 2014, 05:30:01 PM  guest-380b: or even new friends and family for that matter...anytime public money like that is given away it should be promoted much much

   September 24, 2014, 05:30:13 PM  guest-380b: more and if soI think we could build a place like 804 is talking about

   September 25, 2014, 09:54:12 PM  guest-6eff: the most successful small town downtowns in texas are county seats with courthouses and a defined square

   September 26, 2014, 02:45:44 PM  guest-3c6b: the rabbits needed 2 pep rallies this week for homecoming?

   September 26, 2014, 02:45:58 PM  guest-3c6b: hope there was no city money spent on their "community" pep rally at the Forney Park

   September 27, 2014, 01:08:14 AM  guest-a9fd: LOL, that's pathetic.   

   September 27, 2014, 01:09:09 AM  guest-a9fd: I don't have a clue if city money was spent, but nothing wrong with spending money on an event, by all accounts, ...

   September 27, 2014, 01:09:39 AM  guest-a9fd: ...was a big success and well received.  Investing in events that build community togetherness is a worthwhile investment

   September 27, 2014, 01:09:52 AM  guest-a9fd: if they did spend any money, it was MINIMAL!

   September 27, 2014, 06:33:28 AM  guest-07a2: Goooooo Forney!!

   September 28, 2014, 08:39:56 PM  guest-6c47: its nice to see money going towards city events.. it would be even nicer to see city management manage the city and not worry

   September 28, 2014, 08:40:10 PM  guest-6c47: about being involved in the direction of the city as that is not really the MGMTs job

   September 29, 2014, 09:36:09 PM  guest-1c07: How about the park issued I read on the Forney scanner.  What  is up???

   Yesterday at 01:55:35 PM  guest-a6bc: City Management is not to be involved in the direction of the City?  That's the craziest thing I have ever seen

   Yesterday at 01:56:05 PM  guest-a6bc: As to the issue at the park, I am sure it wasn't quite the Riot people are insinuating.

   Today at 07:18:40 AM  guest-4231: Who is up in the next city/school election?

   Today at 08:25:52 AM  guest-804b: mayor, Stephens, Regin, Parker

   Today at 09:22:47 AM  guest-4231: School?

   Today at 09:23:07 AM  guest-4231: Who needs to retire?
