Six months ago we challenged the city of Williston to take a little pride in its own properties before mandating its residents do the same.
Over 60 years of weather and neglect marred the faces of two prominent city properties – city hall and its annex.
Chipped, flaking paint; mildewed facades and the absence of landscaping created eyesores in our midst.
Those of us who live here saw the deterioration day in and day out. We saw it so often, we soon became complacent about it and in time, immune to it.
