Sell it, but before you do, take that $4.2 million group of future leaders who are studying what is wrong with Ytown and what needs to be fixed, and let them tour this place. They can see first hand what is wrong. This is what the lack of leadership, the lack of foresight ,does to a city. It straps them with unmanagable mortgages and taxes. Our current and former leaders thought you could build structures and not have any plan how to pay for those structures. Learn from this you young future leaders. Things must be paid for if they are built, and that payment plan must be thought out before it is built. In your years of future leadership, refrain from anymore white elephants. Tread softly and lightly on our wallets. That money is hard to come by, and most of it belongs to us, so no more crazy projects like the Covelli Centre. If you future leaders learn that lesson then maybe, just maybe, this Covelli Centre project isn't a total debacle. If you build it they will come, yes, but when they leave you still must pay.
51% say keep it. I predict 50.9% don't live in Youngstown and therefore don't pay a penny toward the $12,000,0000 debt.
The results show the utter ignorance and basic remedial nature of just about half the valley residents.
How can you keep something that you cannot afford? Obviously, as mentioned above, you do not pay taxes and most of your expenese are covered by taxpayers. Life is easy when everything is free.
Those of us who work and pay taxes realize that when expenses are 4 times revenue, things will not succeed.
Ignorance is bliss and so many are happy.
Sell it or let the residents of Youngstown pay for it on their property taxes.
To all the haters of Coveli, Ya it may have been over budgeted but how are local politics any diferent than the National, when we have had nothing but over-spenders for the last 12 years that all of you complainers probably supported as well. Just leave it alone
