My wide and I have lived in Belknap Township most of our life. We have heard the complaining about the county building/court house needing repairs for 25-30 years. Why didn't we do these repairs all long instead of waiting until it is almost beyond repair? Back then, Calcite was in full swing with many employees, back than, we had a younger population, and back then, we had jobs. Our tax base was so much bigger, and it would have been spread out. Now, we are a retired community with most of the population on Social Security and we all struggle with the daily necessities.
