Because this town has no money, it is quite obvious that OC will do anything for a buck. (sad).
Stmbt ~ population 12,000 or so ~3 recreation dispenseries are approved with 2 running and 1 about to go retail.. Oak Creek ~ population 850 or so and 3 recreation dispenseries approved. Pretty damn obvious to me that that something is not right with this picture. 1 is plenty for a town this small. What if someone wanted to open 2 more liquor stores to compete with Spiros. I highly doubt the city would approve even 1 liquor store and for the size of this town that would be the right thing to do.. Marijuana is not and never will be the solution to building a better town. Repairing a towns financial issues through positive growth and marketing while fixing major repairs and revamping the area with paved roads, repaired sidewalks, etc. will draw more people here who arent just looking for a cheep place to live but are moving here because its a beautiful town to live in. Oak Creek continuings to destroy any chance it has by continuing to do the things that keeps a town from prospering.. Building code should stay the same. We dont need to tralier park Oak Creek any more then it is.
Probably the same reason ski pass prices are tripple the cost here then many other places. Screw it to those who live far away from no where..
Its always been that way. Any Shell, Chevron and Conoco stations are almost always more expensive. The larger the corp the more expensive the gas. I would assume the higher demand is the cause. Cum and Go's are real good at keeping fair prices but even then, one can be 10-30 cents more a few miles apart from each other. Look at the space station down town and Bobs Conoco. Prices are ways right up there with Shell at southside. Downtown rent could be some of the cause but not sure on that.
Dont be suckered into the tall tale of "dont get gas there, Its less expensive because they have bad gas". I cant tell you how many time I have heard that. It doesnt work that way. Gas is gas, and it all comes from pretty much the same source. If gas is less expensive somewhere else, go there and get it.
I also bought diesel at 3.49 two yrs ago in town, so not the lowest for diesel in 5 yrs.
Any Shell and Conoco stations are always that way. The larger the corp the more expensive the gas. I would assume the higher demand is the cause.
Think about it JJ. Vape pens are cheep. Probably cheeper to just buy one then rent one especialy for multiple days. Volcanos retail between $400~$500 and dont smell any more then a vape pen. Plus the fact that flower vape pens pretty much suck and waist what you just purchased unless you smoke wax or oil out of them. The volcano is expensive for a reason. Its the best and works very well. The only bummer about a volcano is that its for flower not wax or oil. I dont see these as renting very well (kinda like renting a used bong or pipe. They still need the bag and mouth piece. Only time will tell, good luck!!
Hunh... Good luck.. Stmbt has aways had a no go with food trucks in town. Just talk to the ice cream truck lady Buffalo Gal and all the issues she had with the city just to run around town selling ice cream to kids out of her ice cream truck. Most of us grew up to one of these, yet Stmb says it hurts the down town business's financial pocket. Please.... this is just an excuse for the city to gestapo another entrepreneur struggling to survive in a town that continues to become more exclusive. I sure dont want to see tons of these around town, but a few in the right locations would be just fine. I hope you find some private property to operate your buisness and I hope it lies right next to city property just so you can stick it to them.
Woo... hoo...Congrats Moreen.. Those macaroons are the bomb.. After cooking 800 of them, I bet you are ready for a bottle of Chateau St Jean.. I am working tonight, so come on by.
What about city owned public uses such watering decker park, or the ice rink??
Its a bummer that a dusty , muddy town cant even keep a 2 bay car wash operational, but then again, maintnance is a procastinating word in Oak Creek further perpetuating the problems that exist. If that lot is going to keep deteriating then I am all for any type of substainable recycling there. (how ever it works and as long as I dont have top pay$$ and its PROPERLY MAINTAINED)... I am also starting to wonder if recycling truly offsets the cost of all the fossil fuels and expenses used to do so from dropp off to its final product. (I never thought I would say this but maybe having it properly insinerated while filtering out the polutants is something that could be much more substainable).. I have been watching to many recycling doc thoughout the yrs. It gets very confusing as to "what is the most substainable way to recycle"
