I am surprised at how Marengo has become such a ghost town. In years past it was a bustling little town and streets filled with people. Seems there is no upkeep happening, no advancement or growth. What exactly is the town coucil doing to help? Are they not aware of state grants that could be utilized to improve the infastructure? Reach out to new businesses to fill those empty buildings and bring in revenue. I would suggest citizens to really research your candidates for town council next election. Knowledge of government is key for the recovery of Marengo.
