If Boardman was a city and had a 1/2% SALES TAX, with all the retail, car dealers, resturants and employee base we should be tax exempt and have all sevices possible and good police & fireman, free parks and good roads. LETS GET MOVING FOLKS.

I'm looking at the vote above and apparently very few people want to be part of Youngstown in any way, shape, or form. Kind of flies in the face of some who say that the townships would vote yes for JEDDS because of the water savings and the number of suburbanites who work in the city. Youngstown should quit trying to pick the pockets of suburbanites and figure out how to solve its own financial problems. First off try cutting unnecessary employees and forcing the unions to accept cuts. Then drop the income tax to normal levels and possibly, just possibly, businesses might locate here. Of course addressing the crime issue would help too.

Maybe a better economic stimulus package would have been to grant our individual shares to local government for it looks like, one way or another, it will end up there anyway. As Apollo wrote, the most cost effective route is for Youngstown to deal with their financial issues and leave the townships alone and the township, in conjunction with some more convincing belt-tightening(such as consolidating department heads into one position), needs to sell the residents on the idea that a levy will cost them less in the long-term. Compared to Boardman, Youngstown has three times the number of safety service personnel with only twice the population. Then why do we hear the horror stories about response times and homicides? Everyone talks of becoming a city but when the start up costs and realities of the work involved just to get it on the ballot manifest themselves, the idea will wamble.
