First why are we putting a square brick box on every corner. SERIOUSLY ,,I would bet the public would rather have all that money spent put to our water-sewer system so we wouldn't have to pay that extra amount that they put on r water bill (I believe its called CSO CHARGE).

Second, how often do we have high speed chases in Ashland? Why don't the city get a few 4 cylinders vehicles for the officers to drive around in and respond to calls. Why do we need anything bigger, especially in Ashland?

Let's start with these two, have many more to come

How about we have a few clubs downtown. Public clubs with bands so people can get out and have a good time. Have a little bit of night life down town. And how about code inforcement starts doing their job. Some of these houses look like they belong in Westwood.

put most police on bikes,,maybe even put a little motor on them !the powers that be dont want to arrest the criminals or prosecute them why do we need high speed ,gas guzzling vehicles ,at least they,d have a sensible argument , they dont have the speed to catch them!and bikes would eleminate the need for the hours used for exercise paid by tax payers !!!by the way have you looked at the square brick boxes on the corners?uneven, grass growing ,dangerous !who approved the poor job and why!!! as for code enforcement,leave people alone and put that effort to cleaning up their own weeds !

The city is not putting in the little square boxes on every corner. The Commonwealth of Kentucky is doing the work along KY 168 (Blackburn)

I would eliminate the city managers high paid position and give more power back to the mayor and the commissioners we voted for. The city is also missing out on a ton of free money by not having a full time grant writer. They could also check into plenty of other federal money available. The city could have recently just saved about 100,000 on their 47th st boat dock by having it federally funded but thats stuff never makes the paper.

Agree with the city manager comments, disagree with grants. It is still our tax dollars for them to waste.

Not trying to make this a personal matter, just trying to find ways to fix Ashland because lots of people r leaving and all you hear is how kids hate it here and they can't wait to move away. This should not b like this
