Meanwhile, instead of generating the full b&o as allowed by state law, we still have the Lee Ave bridge in disrepair as well as other major infrastructure issues unresolved; way to do your job Weirton council!

Spread the burden out,not place it on one group or another--really? That is in direct contradiction to what the city has done to it's retirees when they increased the premium for health care, doubled the deductible, and also made them pay a co-insurance. Meanwhile, the employees pay nothing towards their health insurance--the city also pays their deductibles for them. It is not fair to burden a retiree who is on a fixed income with these increased costs while those working pay nothing. The city needs to get qualified, business-minded individuals to operate this city rather than the current group of people who do nothing but make decisions for what is best for themselves and their cronies, rather than for the people who have to live here. The lights have been dimming in this town for a long time--nothing has improved much, even though the delusional mayor thinks it has, which is a main source of concern. Turn out the lights and call it a day.

Did the city not just recently attack the port authority which has been working on a revenue generating model, fighting to have its authority dissolved? And when the port authority offered revenue sharing with the city, the city decline and refused to participate? The reason no companies are moving in, in the middle of an oil boom is because the city officials continually attack them. Now you want to penalize your citizens with less services, higher fees, and efforts to ensure no jobs come to this reason after turning down revenue? What are you folks smoking?
