Why is council driving out two businesses?

Editor:

What is Buckeye Lake Village Council thinking? Why are they thinking about driving out two businesses - Lake Drive- Thru and Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken - that rent from the village?

Both businesses have been here a long time. The owners have worked hard and put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their businesses. So now council can just tell them that they are no longer welcome here?

I thought villages were supposed to stand behind and support their local businesses and the voters who elected them. I guess some council members would rather see empty buildings and the trash and broken windows that generally go with them. Council members should ask residents what they want. Obviously, a lot of residents patronize these businesses and some work there.

By the way, it was another great BLASST show this year. The thought that Buckeye Lake Village would like to take over BLASST is frightening. Don’t let them get their hands on BLASST.

Is this a great village or what!
