I'd say from observance that Toledo and Monroe are on pretty equal footing far as being crooked.

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

Dumbdee has done a far better job at attracting large quality employers than Monroe has.

That isn't really debatable given the data.

Beyond a doubt.  Monroe is resting in the past and sinking like an old boat with a leaky hull.

But the idea that you have to give tax abatement's offsets any "New" development

Monroe City is  land locked  by self decisions long ago determined the limits of their growth.   With everyone wanting an Industrial park  -   you've seen the sprawl of development in patches around the county with little coordination as each fifedom wants to control it all... 

Kind of like other duplication of services except taxpayers don't really get a say

The City of Monroe has all sorts of Industrial zoned property - including direct access to a port - that hasn't been developed.

Tons of land.

Being landlocked has nothing to do with their ongoing failures.
