To the editor:
As residents of Water Street in Franklin, we read with interest the Daily Journal Oct. 22 article “Beautiful Streets Are Hard to Beat.” We agree with board of works members Steve Barnett and Bob Swinehamer that the $1.75 million price tag for upgrading and beautifying Water Street is unnecessary and too high.
First, Water Street does not receive the heavy use that Main Street does and is not a gateway into the downtown. Surely, the road does not need to be built to the same standards.
