Latest letters from Citrus Heights Sentinel readers include criticism of the city’s 20-year plan for Sunrise Mall and comments about how federal COVID-19 funds should be spent.
COVID-19 money should go to support police
[RE: Could relief funds help restore Citrus Heights police cuts, repave roads?, May 23rd] I don’t have too much confidence in the major majority, 3/5 of our chosen leaders, who sit on our city council, while they vote to tax and spend as they see fit. Just look at our so-called leader’s in Washington D.C., many of whom couldn’t even balance their own checkbooks!
I can only hope and pray that they (Citrus Heights City Council) use our government stimulus money on worthwhile causes, like our men and women in BLUE, who put their lives on the line to assist us, every single day!!
God bless them and our military!

Sunrise Mall plan is a ‘pie in the sky’ idea
[RE: City update highlights growth, redevelopment opportunity in Citrus Heights; May 13th] Surprised the city’s Nichole Baxter and Meghan Huber are not floating higher on the hot air — pie in the sky 20-year redevelopment plans for our failed Sunrise Mall… They’ve never mentioned one single person with a buck in their pocket who has any interest to pay for the first few shovels and nails. Maybe we should do another street corner boot drive with their high heels, or ask “Sleepy Joe” and “Commyla” for another billion from the treasury deficit.
Any idea who’s up first to fund the hypothetical mall action? And, when does the mall movie theater re-open… and the rear parking pavement has turned into ground sand with plenty of broken glass for the rear apartment kids’ bare feet. 20-plus years for full redevelopment; half of these readers will be pushing up daisies… but I’ll try to be optimistic right with you.
