I think it is great that the city has a surplus of money. I am not against murals as long as they are in good taste. I do think that a priority would be to change out the street lighting on 41 to LED lights. Just before Christmas we were traveling on 41 just after dark and passed by where a man had been hit trying to cross the street. The lighting is very poor in most areas. I know this would be a costly and lengthy project but in the long run would be much more cost efficient. My suggestion would be to budget the replacement cost of the lighting over a period of time even if it took a couple of years. Let’s do this!
