To which someone else answered, "You're right, and the best thing for people like that is if they don't want to be part of a town and its rules, then they should move." Altho these two people will remain nameless, I can only say, "Yea, keep up the good work" on those comments and the many other good ones I heard at that meeting. It was great to see so many express their feelings about their town.
