To the Editor,

As of this writing, the City of Henning is bonded for $12,235,532 (twelve million two hundred thirty five thousand five hundred thirty two dollars), including interest. Yes, over 12 million in debt.

FACT: The city will be adding an additional 3 to 4 million dollars of debt for road/infrastructure projects.

FACT: This money has to be paid back.

It is my intention to hold a special meeting March 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the Henning Community Center to propose substantial cuts. I believe the mayor and the council have a moral and legal obligation to be responsible with the taxpayers money, not only on how the money is spent, but on how we pay back the debt. 

  Council members as well as myself can be reached at the following numbers, which can also be found on the City of Henning website:
