Thank you for the Easter fun! Kids loved it!
Hi Silex community! I just wanted to remind ya all that the Silex board meeting will be August 9th. I received a few comments on some of my past posts and I would like to do some clarification on the next couple of days. A citizen who doesn’t live in the city limits doesn’t feel like they should attend the meetings because the decisions made in Silex is of no interest them. However ,what happens in Silex doesn’t always stay in Silex. There are decisions made by the board that affect not only the town, but the entire community. Up for discussion right now is the construction of a cell phone tower that has to be contracted by 2022. I’m pretty sure that that would affect many people in the Silex community, not just the people in the city limits. Another was how in the past the board was able to negotiated a contract for the Silex school district to lease the property where the ball fields are now . That was an amazing 100 year contract that benefits everyone in the Silex community. You may not use these fields, however, as a retired child psychologist I can tell you that getting our children involved in sports is a great way to teach values they will appreciate and use their entire life. It is also a powerful tool in keeping them off drugs. We don’t need more tweekers in the Silex community. As I said several times; as members of the Silex community it is our responsibility to attend these meetings and voice our concerns. It’s also very important that we express our gratitude for the thankless job they do. While at the same time, we the community must hold their feet to fire for the job _THEY_ chose to do. MORE TO COME IN THE COMING DAYS BEFORE THE BOARD. Please I encourage comments and feedback.
