    I took the survey, and it’s laughable to think that any of the types of businesses mentioned would locate in Century or anywhere else without doing their own demographic study. Just because we want a theater, fast food, entertainment, luxury hotel etc. doesn’t make it feasible for any business to invest the money in such an enterprise. Century needs to put their efforts towards correcting problems that they have control of such as overgrown lots, dilapidated buildings, marketing the industrial park, and most of all figuring out how to bill and collect for utilities from the 50% that have not been billed. I still want to know what connections there are between the customers and businesses that weren’t getting billed, and the crew sitting around that table at city hall.

    I took the survey and some of the questions seemed pretty irrelevant.

    Botanical Garden, Art Gallery, Movie Theater.

    Maybe the 3 of those could be at the old sawmill site.

    Does anybody really believe that anything the haas study does or doesn’t say will influence any business to locate in Century and have to deal with the continuous clown show at city hall?

    In Century we need free food to go with the free gas and water.
