The road comm says all it's money so they can run snowplows on the 3 interstates..

Kisonias published my letter in yesterday's MN.  I suggest you read it.  Cannot wait for a lame answer from Randy Pierce.

My guess is you will have a long wait.

Care to post the highlights here?  For the reading pleasure of those of us that don't have a need for paper to line bird cages and litter boxes?

I dont get the paper anymore because the carrier either didn't like going a few miles out of the way for just one paper or someone on my street would steal it.  I can't see the article you mention when I look online.  The MEN doesn't put much online unless you pay for it

It fascinates me that the MEN does that.

Seems to me like much better papers make their money online by advertising as you click on more and more links.

The fact that the News wants you to pay to even look to me is an admission that they don't have many links to click on in the first place.

Probably not.  Look at the town they are in.  Going down the tubes.  Maybe the MN is following suit.

Its been a long and slow decline, but I believe the deterioration of Monroe is picking up steam. 

It doesn't seem like it can support the level of businesses it did in the past.

Kind of sad that some think a National Park is the solution - but there you have it.

It is marginally better than a defunct and rotting paper mill.  Marginally.

It will go into passing gear when DTE slam dunks them,  Ain't nothing left.  Is Detroit Stoker still around or did they fold too.

Maybe we should start a page documenting all the manufacturing businesses and companies that used to be around Monroe but is now long gone.

Ford.
Paper Mills.  This was Multiple Operations that covered BLOCKS of this City.  I think the only building still there is the now warehouse across from the Y that is rotting away mostly.
Monroe Auto Equipment (MFG) - Just a smoke stack left.
La Z Boy (MFG) - Turned into SR Housing.
Stoker a shell of its former past.
Monroe Castings....  Not sure if that was the name - at Front and Roessler.  The former home of the Firemans Dog.

I am sure I am missing many - but Monroe is no longer the town I grew up in.

Once you lose your industry (and employment), you become a bedroom community and your tax base goes south.  Even Dundee has industry, actually a lot of it on Plank road and more behind the high school.  People consider Dundee a bedroom community but it really isn't.

Once the industry leaves and the community has to rely on homeowners taxes for operating expenses, taxes go up because politicians NEVER operate on less, always MORE

example in Toledo, another crap hole worse than Monroe.  They had nearly a millions left in one of the budget funds and just had to spent it because it was there.  Some wanted to put it toward streets which are really bad but the majority prevailed and they decided to upgrade the parks and spend most of it for new signs.   I think the punks and thugs already know where the parks are.

Toledo has had a long succession of crap mayors and corrupt city council's. and this new Pollack is no different.  He's an idiot just like the last one was. Carty Stinkfinger could do better.  Toledo City Council is nothing more that a bunch of money grubbing good old boys.  Glad I don't live there.
