We have lived in Helena Valley nearly fifty years. I was really disgusted to see County Commissioner Susan Geise refer to valley residents as those people who choose to live in valley and do not want to pay their own way. She wants to hit people with a $100 annual fee to do more deep thinking on flood control. Derek Brown had a plan when he was commissioner. There have been plans for years and years and people are tired of planning. Give the road department the money and tell them to go do it. It will get done. Quit planning on federal money. Get to work and I might even support your fee.
