If you look at your own numbers, you will see the majority of people that live in Brownsburg and are paying taxes are families. We expect our school system to stay top notch and not have to patch up what they already have because the town council is cutting their budget yet forcing more students into their care.
I agree we need to grow, but not at the expense of our future generations.
Also I was shocked to see on the news a representative of the council speaking to how Brownsburg wants to take control over State Road 267 so we can expand it.
When will the council listen to the people of Brownsburg that pay taxes? A few years back we went through this and it was clear, due to the turn out at the town council meeting, which was standing room only, that the taxpayers of Brownsburg do not want S.R. 267 expanded, regardless of who has control over it.
We should not have to go through the possible upheaval of the town we love every time the town council gets new members. I am assuming there are new members because I don’t want to believe the current members were in place a few years back when we went through the meeting that clearly stated what the taxpayers want. I hope you are not ignoring us as well. However if it comes to it again, the people of Brownsburg will group together and fight this again.
The members of the Brownsburg Town Council need to remember they are in their position to execute what is best for the Town of Brownsburg as deemed by their constituents. If you listen, you will hear what your constituents want. We are generally not that quiet when it comes to where our town is headed.

You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
