Boardman officials argue against phasing out of state reimbursements to the township

Indianola Rd. between South Ave & Southern Blvd is still the worst road in this part of the county. Youngstown has patched their potholes better.
Incorporating may be the way to go but the township residents would then have to pull a full share of the weight and would lose some of the free rides they now get from the County. The "City" of Boardman would then be able to impose an income tax. (And they'll use the police and fire depts. to pass the law just like they did in Youngstown)
As it stands all of the densely populated townships in our valley are a drain on the economy - everybody is paying to keep them afloat. But the residents of Boardman, Austintown, Liberty, etc. get to save a few dollars in taxes.
If we were really serious about government being more efficient and effective we need to be talking about consolidation - and not just 911 services or combining building or health departments. We need a county-wide police and fire department. The best school districts in the country are county-wide school districts in Maryland, Virginia and Florida. If the street and road departments in the county could get together and share their purchasing power we could save millions and the condition of our roads would improve. All-in-all we would be safer, better educated and more successful in the global economy.

Tests will be done at former Wick Avenue dealerships

Or, some may say the area deteriorated as the dealerships left. Urban sprawl is bad for everybody but we keep on doing it.

‘If we can save one life, isn’t that a success?'

Thank you, Roger, for your ever presence on this venue - I guess you don't work either!...It's been said, "Every Saint has a past and every sinner has a future."
Alcoholism and drug addiction are diseases according to the American Medical Association. Judge Durkin's program has saved many lives here in our valley as have other "Drug Courts" throughout the country. If the participants fail tests or don't show up for appointments they go to jail. Drug Court graduates are productive members of society and all of our lives would be affected without them.
