The Town of Jonesboro’s Alderman-at-Large LaStevic Cottonham last week suggested that if the town can’t get its act together, that perhaps there shouldn’t be a town. The comments came at the end of last Tuesday night’s meeting of the board of aldermen, and were in reference to the town’s financial plight and spending priorities.
Said Cottonham, “If we don’t attend to the (water tank), and the water gets contaminated, and we start losing people of the town, then what’s the purpose of even having one?” He added, “What’s the purpose of having a Police Department if no one is here. What’s the purpose of having a council if no one is here, and the water’s contaminated?”
