To the Editor:
Johnston City’s City Council has voted to not repair the Boy Scout Cabin, leaving the Boy Scouts of Johnston City no place to have meetings. Isn’t the Boy Scout Cabin there for the Boy Scouts and other events? Is it too much to ask that we repair it, too?
It’s a historical building built in 1936 as a WPA project every penny of it was raised by the Boy Scouts. Why should such history as that not get repaired? According to Mayor Jim Mitchell the Boy Scout Cabin was built and given to Boy Scout Troop 7019 but the Troop returned it to the City Council. Isn’t it our job to keep the history of Johnston City safe?
The Boy Scout Cabin has not been kept up the way it should. But the City Council should think of this problem. Something has to be done about the City Council’s choice.
