Traverse City Record-Eagle

Editorial: Time to come clean on splash pad fiasco


Now it’s time for the city to come clean and for city officials to explain, in detail, who did what, when they did it and why. The public needs to know who intervened to prevent the system of checks and balances from working. The public also wants some accountability for what went wrong and for Traverse City becoming a punch line for potty jokes.

We have rules and regulations for a reason. When local governments break those rules, purposely or by accident, the public has a right to know who did it and why.
