Letter to the Editor: Too many buildings are empty

To the editor:

I think it is time that our city officials put a moratorium on new building construction within the city.

One only needs to look around and establish more than 50 buildings sitting empty that once housed a small or large store setting.

Alexandria is beginning to look like Fergus Falls. There is a lot of potential tax money sitting idle in Alexandria.

The city and chamber officials should form a committee and bring back businesses into these vacant buildings, not allowing new structures and have them sitting empty in the future.
