Letter: Nebulous numbers

Re: Dorothy Cutter’s letter of Aug. 10: So the city projects a best estimate of future operating costs based on 54 years of usage of a wastewater treatment plant and your group says those numbers were “pulled out of a hat.”

Yet your group cites estimates of off-setting revenue from some nebulous tourist facility built on the old treatment plant site (which, by the way, per the use plan can only be flood control or agriculture). Out of what hat did you pull your numbers? I just don’t see teeming hordes of tourists flocking to the old treatment site to watch crops grow or floods being controlled.
