Town of Frisco should not compete with other businesses

Hooray for Councilmembers Dan Fallon and Woody Van Grundy, who are uneasy and object to the Island Grill construction project at the Frisco Marina. They recognize this project may divert customers from their restaurants. Sounds to me very much like the objections Frisco retailers had to the Home Depot fiasco a few months ago for the same reason – same problem, different numbers. Moreover, as tax payers, why should public money be used for private purposes?Frisco keeps reminding us that it needs funding for all kinds of projects. There is a satisfying rush of adrenaline when one can spend money on all kinds of wonderful things, especially when it’s with other people’s money. Frisco needs to be reminded that its essential responsibilities are limited to: police and fire protection, water and sewer service, road and bridge maintenance, and park and recreation facilities, period. Everything else, including attracting tourists, selling things, such as merchandise and real estate, belongs to private enterprise. Frisco’s businesses are doing quite well, thank you, without competition from town government.
