Thank you for the informative piece on Ocean View’s budget workshop discussion. The town council’s effort to engender community spirit with a series of Town-sponsored events is a good initiative.
Chief McLaughlin’s suggestion of a community firepit is most welcomed. A Town-sponsored firepit could become a new center point for numerous groups and community gatherings. This is needed, as the town is in search of a new identity. The warmth of a fire (and hot chocolate) may rekindle needed community cohesion.
