To The Editor:

What a joke to read Texas Downtown awarding Belton Nolan Creek as the best Texas project for under 50k population in Texas!

I remember reading some years ago Belton’s mayor pro tem telling the Temple Daily Telegram that people would come from out of state to swim in Nolan Creek. The same report recorded all city councilmen in collusion except for one.

Jerri Gaunt was the only one who showed fiscal responsibility and voted against wasting tax dollars to put people in Nolan Creek for entertainment.

Thank you, Councilwoman Gaunt, for putting cleanliness and taxpayers first.

I hope all those who favor putting people from out of state in Nolan Creek are going to advise them of 200k gallons of waste water that spilled into the creek on Oct. 30 and the nearly 300,000 gallons of sewage that spilled into the creek in 2011.

If not, maybe I can go into business converting old septic tanks into swimming pools.

As long as the honest councilwoman, Jerri Gaunt, doesn’t tell, I could make a better return on my investment than Belton has with the Nolan Creek project. I’m just saying …
