Plan now like Maytag’s gone

To the Editor:

What will happen to Newton if Maytag shuts its doors? Will the town die? No.

I don’t think Maytag will shut down and even if that were to happen, there is no reason for the town to destruct. There is a lot of wealth in Newton and not all that wealth is bound up in Maytag.

The city planners need to start now to figure ways to keep that wealth here. The racetrack is a good start, but only a start.

If you can find a way to help the Jesus park without using taxpayer money, you should do it. And you need to find a solution for people getting parking tickets on the square.

The message is simple. Start thinking now like Maytag is already gone.
