With 1,200 homes to demolish in a relatively small city, just about everyone lives near a dump. What a wasteland....what incompetence.
Even at 1200 the ratio is about right for any city of its size. Of course you cant see past your Garden of Eden, wherever that may be. If we could get the owners who abandoned these properties to fix them themsselves we could build a sewer retention pond instead of raising Celtic's rates.
You know better than that ..... 2 completely separate taxing entities. It's like saying that maybe we could hire some more police officers if we just didn't buy so many damn library books or didn't build a school or 11 .... They work completely independent of each other and you know it.
We need to build a retention pond and pay off a huge lawsuit and fine because it has been ignored until now by every Mayor back to the original incident under McDermott Sr.
You would have thought that Daddy could have at least left a note taped to the door to his son ..... "Tommy ... fix retention pond that I didn't get to ..... Love, Dad"
