If MEN would like to know why their readership and sales (both copy and advertising) are in the toilet it's because of bland writing, non-informative articles(parking boot), and a shrinking news format.

Who wants to advertise or read a paper that is in idle mode. If you are not in drive get out of the way.  My prediction is 5-6 years tops before they fold.  By then most of the older generation can't see and the younger generation will be fully electronically connected.

In all fairness though......wouldn't that be the responsibility of the Chief or Department Head to first off report the problem, then 2 provide a corrective action plan, then 3 that person report out implementation and effectiveness on a regular basis.  BUT.....the City Manager should be kicking someineptass about right now!

I'm guessing that citizens are not contacting their elected officials about any of the issues... 

Thus the politicians (elected officials) only know what the City Manager wants them to know...

Monroe will do something about the problem when someone od's in the City offices building.

It takes an in your face event to get anything done. I think they feel that the drug problem has not reached an epidemic status yet.

McDonalds od...eh.., shooting up in a donut shop.... small potato's, od on a sidewalk...just move it off to the side,  OD at the City offices...OH carp it's happening here we need to do something(ringing their hands).

Then that is sad and perhaps surrounding township citizens should be voicing their opposition to the CITY for allowing their filth and issues filter into the townships.

Drugs are all over..jails are full.  How do locals stop people From buying/selling drugs.  The government could by eliminating them at the source but they won't do that.  1

We could start by a pardon of all marijuana offenses...

except that and alcohol crimes are the ones that "Pay" for the system 

No money in Heroin prosecution or law enforcement efforts (at least I thought I heard Luke Davis saying that...)

Is 'the boot' still around?

I've never seen it applied to any vehicle and there haven't been any more articles in the MonroeNews about it either!
