I remain amazed at the number of people who believe the City determines and limits what businesses come into Kerrville and where those businesses locate.
In the Monday paper, you published a letter complaining that a bank would be located on the Sidney Baker and Main Street corner instead of the “upscale restaurant and customer-friendly shopping center with a variety of small stores.” Apparently the writer of the letter believes the City Council promised this. It didn’t.
A basic course on capitalism is needed. This corner was owned by an individual who has done much for this community. It was his to sell or lease and the City could not and would not dictate to him whom he sold the property to.
Again, I am amazed at the people who ask me for the City to not allow any more banks, nail salons, or fast-food, fried-chicken places as if as the City had control over that.
If a business finds Kerrville a promising place for their operation and they abide by our laws, zoning, and building regulations, they can start that business here.
