I believe this is a V&M ploy to expand their baghouse and the project will never happen. Girard should sit still and watch Mayor Jay come begging for the land with lots more tax benefits for Girard as the carrot.

Civil groups can't get together because the Greed ! The same is to be said with this situation. Girard wants to protect it's intrest and the same for Youngstown. The Only intresting thing is there's no hope let alone JOBS. This project won't get off the ground. It's just wasted ink and paper !

This is an absolute no-brainer. Of course, change the name/boundaries of this weed patch and bring on the jobs along with the boost to the economy and local income tax base that come with it. Any mayor standing in its way needs to be changed with dereliction of duty, misfeasance and malfeasance.

DUH! I have an answer, if you cut taxes and create incentives that ease the economic burden of companies such as V&M Steel... This would create more funds for the company to use productively as it chooses... just a thought. We need to let V&M decide weather the expansion is necessary or not and let V&M decide how to pay the city of Girard for the expansion.
