When the big land trade appeared about Tansy Point, a number of the local voters got together and started the Warrenton Property Protection Committee (WPPC). The WPPC started an initiative petition process. While this has taken a little longer than we first thought, we have now been given permission to gather signatures.
In the near future, we will have individuals canvassing each neighborhood for petition signatures; however, in the meantime, the WPPC is getting started with a bang by gathering signatures from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Gateway Masonic Lodge in Warrenton, located at 66 Fourth St., near the city park.
Our petition is requesting that the sale or trade of any city-owned asset of $100,000 or greater must go to the vote of the citizens for approval. This will not affect the day to day city operations. The current process allows the city commission makes those types of decisions.
We feel that the voters should have a greater say in this matter. Please come out and show your support on this matter.
