Roses to the approval by City Council of a 12-inch waterline extension on the north side of Salem. Efforts by local businessman John Kufleitner have been ongoing since November and it's been long enough. Presumably the TIF will be put in place allowing the development within the city of a new high-tech Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership by Kufleitner across the street from its current location on North Ellsworth Avenue in Perry Township. Kufleitner actively pursued this through the proper channels. Roses for his diligence and for the prospects of new jobs the development will create. That is what this is all supposed to be about - getting people to invest in Salem. Roses to the mayor and city council, especially members Berlin and Nestic, for making this come together. The only thorn to all of this was a perception from some that the city - because of the slowness of this project getting approved - was reluctant to support economic development. That is a vibe we do not want out there. This news combined with the MAC Trailer jobs announcement makes for a very good week for the city.
