Junction City is like all other city governments — it needs additional revenue sources. As the fixed costs have greatly increased and the fact that revenue intake will not keep up, the city must seek out ways to generate additional revenue without raising taxes and eliminating services to the residents of Junction City.
To move Junction City forward and level the playing field with Danville and surrounding communities, Junction City must have the ability to include the sale of alcoholic beverages as a component in its business plan. Without this ability, Junction City will not attract any major restaurants, motels, drugstores, etc. And without this growth, Junction City will face financial difficulties sooner than later.
With Danville being wet over the past year, its alcohol-related incidents have decreased. I am sure that Junction City can do as well or better than Danville.
I urge all the residents of Junction City on Oct. 4 to vote for this opportunity that will allow Junction City the growth and competitiveness to become a viable city.
