Business expanding offers hope for communities

Print Article

The increased safety for youth and community that comes with the proposed Town Pump expansion in Troy — a bigger space for parking, fueling up and traffic control in the highway — would be a welcome change.

Not to mention that better lighting in the parking lot will deter drug activity — and yes, it does happens there.

I vote to bring in the new building and jobs and be grateful for Town Pump’s willingness to repair the water issues on the highway, install sidewalks and provide our volunteer fire department with new gear — as well as their annual contributions to our schools, food pantry and area non-profits.

What are we waiting for? Let’s celebrate Town Pump’s willingness to grow and contribute to our community and spread the word that Troy honors our past, but believes in looking forward to a stronger, safer community in the future.

—Maggie Anderson,

Troy
