Property owners gathered Thursday night to discuss what projects they would like to see paid for by a proposed property improvement district and also share some of their concerns.

About 20 of the approximately 70 Downtown property owners listed their goals for the new business district that included everything from tree lighting, to alleyway cleanup, to directional signage to get people to Downtown.

    Mr. Colombini feels that "incorrect money management" by the city has resulted in a lack of funding for the downtown area and futher points out that the city has not "reigned" in the high cost of retirement benefits for city employees.

    On that point, I agree with Mr. Colombini. I feel that the city can be more aggressive in addressing this sensitive and expensive issue and I made that point known at the last Council meeting.

    But that is where Mr. Colombini and I part company. We all would like to see a "spiffier" downtown but finding the funding is the issue. Despite the weak economy, Lodi is in pretty good shape as compared to many other cities in the Valley but we still have to priortize how we spend our available cash. I'm certain that, in the banking business, Mr. Colombini is faced with similar choices.

    If we had the money, would we be better off expanding our gang supression efforts?
    What about beefing up our programs for seniors and the youth of the community? Should we spend more on street resurfacing? The list is endless and the decisions are difficult but I suggest that the problem has not been created by "incorrect money management" as suggested by Mr. Colombini.
