Do you agree with the Tonganoxie City Council's decision to accept grant money, which requires a 20 percent match, to extend Chieftain Trail?

“In thinking about how this project could benefit the children of Tonganoxie I see safety as a big factor in going forth with this project. We must invest in our children, whereas by doing so the patrons are investing in the future of Tonganoxie. Many of our children need a safe way to walk to school and other patrons could use the walking trail to exercise.”

“Chieftain Trail is one of our communities greatest assets. Using grant money to extend it would be a benefit to Tonganoxie.”

“I’m happy to see the council agree to this plan, but I can't help but wonder whether it’s truly going to be used enough to justify the expense. I think back to the ‘expansion’ of Fourth and Pleasant streets and am a bit bitter that my kids, and others from Grey Stone and South Park subdivisions, still can’t ride their bikes to school, Chieftain Park or the pool with safe access to sidewalks. I hope that the council considers the mistakes that have been made in our city in the past and gives this new project what it needs to be successful.”
