Editor's note: Below is a letter from Davenport's own Bill Ashton of Ashton Engineering, detailing his concerns, relative to flooding, with the Isle of Capri's (IOC's) proposal for building a casino hotel on downtown Davenport's riverfront.
My friend, Mayor Charlie Brooke, frequently says: People who are against a project are usually uninformed, and if they would learn the facts they would change their minds. Unfortunately for the citizens of Davenport, in this case it is the city council, city staff, and DavenportOne that do not have all the facts.
