  1. all those who dont want to pay taxes tent city is the place for you No building permits needed for your house Free trash pickup Free healthcare Free propane Great neighbors What could be better!?

  2. Kick every body out of tent city they make the town look so trashy . n the state should not help them cause all the government help they sell like food they with food stamps they try to sell for a couple bucks

  3. Number two people like you disgust me. Do you seriously think squeezing condos and houses next to eachother on a lot the size for just two houses makes this town look good. Get off your high horse already these people need a place to live and you want to take that away because it doesn’t look good according to your standards.
