Capital needs pile up

Problems could arise for the city if capital projects are postponed for too long, according to Martinsville City Manager Leon Towarnicki.
For example, Towarnicki said, heavily driven city vehicles such as police cars must be replaced often. If they wear out before they are replaced, they have to be parked, and police officers and other city workers might not be able to respond to emergencies and requests for services as quickly, he said.
