Greater Youngstown Italian Festival

So, if I have business to do at the Chase Bank building or the First National Bank Building at 4:30 on Friday - I have to pay to get there? There are other businesses on central square besides the banks. The fees should not start until 5:00 pm when downtown business close.

Italian Fest is getting too greedy.

Most Youngstown businesses shoveled snow from downtown sidewalks

Why did they only walk down West Federal? The snow still has not been removed from in front of The Legal Arts building. The owner of that building owns several buildings downtown and is awful about snow removal.

Walk all around downtown, if you can get over the mounds left by the street plows, and notify ALL building owners-not just those on Federal.

Avoid Market Street downtown through Wednesday

Why isn't anyone reporting that the northbound lanes are also closed?

State audit of Mahoning engineer's office sparks political tempest

Why do the local governments, county and city, keep wasting taxpayer dollars on these audits and studies? They never like the results, probably because they do point out what they are doing wrong, and very rarely implement the suggestions.

OE sues Boardman couple over pool under power lines

This is why OE is concerned about the power lines and the pool:

My questions:

Which was there first? The power lines or the pool?

If the power lines where there first, why was the permit even issued for the pool?

WATTS going on

When is YSU going to start investing money in replacing the worn out STEM college buildings? Namely, Ward Beecher Hall. They keep talking about advancements in STEM but have the professors working in antiquated facilities.

Youngstown's trying to be helpful, but ...

You asked for it:

It took me about 25 minutes of random searching. Finally found it under the heading About Youngstown - Youngstown 2010.

Looks like 231 pages of fun reading.

Parking proposal ‘is not dead’

The city seems to be doing everything it can to get new business downtown. What is it doing to keep established business downtown. Agency on Aging and Butler Wick are two of the more recent departures. I have heard there are some of Frangos tenants that are considering leaving downtown also.

The city income tax and lack of "quality" parking are two of the reasons heard most often for business leaving.

Parking proposal ‘is not dead’

I would like to see where the $1.3 million was spent.

I stopped taking the elevators a few years ago when the inspection certificates were invalid. The steps on the southwest corner are now buckling.

Water backs up into the basement every time it rains.

The city has done way too much for Lou Frangos. He has to start being a responsible landlord on all of his properties.
