Little more time will improve city capital projects plan

Sometimes the best thing to do is wait.

Such is the case with the ambitious capital projects plan advanced by the Campana administration for the City of Williamsport.

City Council has opted to take a little more time to review several capital improvement projects and decide how much more debt the city is willing to take on to pay for them.

The plan advanced by Mayor Gabriel J. Campana is full of intriguing ideas, but they have to be paid for responsibly by a city that can only afford to take on so much debt.

A little more time to make the plan better and more financially pragmatic is well worth it.
