Tinker building... I wonder if we demanded that the town make sure that each and every apartment in town was up to code if landlords would then put money into apartments, make nicer living conditions for the people, attract less crack customers and therefore make people want to go to main street? Just saying. We could totally gentrify downtown with some good decisions and paying a little bit of money.
