Commissioner Mike Mulcare wanted to spend at least $20 million to build a Farmer's Market building. Guess we didn't need to spend that $20 million after all.

I would like to see a dog park instead. No one has one anywhere close. Farmers market building, why?

I think it's pretty obvious why a Farmers Market building is needed. It's a convenience for those of us who don't want to have to drive all the way to Dekalb for fresh, organic meats and foods. But, it's no surprise that Douglasville doesn't have an actual, year-round farmer's market given that its so back woods and refuses to modernize.
