The word is out that Councilwoman Rice is going to go after the water department for these billing deals. She's a miracle for this place! I don't know how she does it, but she's not giving up on any of the issues of the town. She has the blessing of the voters!!! Support her efforts!!

I don't see us locating our business to Mt. Sterling.

Among many other half baked accusations and insinuations, I've seen people complaining because the town's administrator personally donated money to pay for water connection, and seen the kvetching because people who happened to work for the town volunteered personal time to assist in assisting a new taxpaying job-creating business in moving.

Based on what they have said and posted, it's clear to us that there's a faction that would be nothing but trouble for any new businesses.

Considering that this faction apparently has the support of at least one council member, it would be foolish to open a shop and hire people while having to deal with complainers and obstructionists who would obstruct, fight and disparage us at every effort to become a civic-minded contributing business.

We've lived in the area going on 35 years and most of the people are friendly and civil. However, a noisy bunch of complainers with support in the town council who don't even bother to make sure their accusations are based in fact degrade the town's image and make it a laughingstock. That is not an environment to risk one's money and time investing in a business.

It's a sad state of affairs for an otherwise great area, but from a business standpoint, we won't buy trouble by expanding there.

I think your full of it trying to make a point in defense of a crappy town. No body wants to pit a business where there is no school, no population , and no employee pool. As far as you "expanding" your imaginary buisness. You would be a fool to expand here for those reasons and no other. Have a good day JJ.

You were never going to locate in Mt. Sterling, you do not have a business or the money to do so, just another one of the downtown people(Joe?) that wants to play big deal. You get alot of them in small towns because that is the only place they can pretend to be big shots---nice try but it won't work, people are fed up with under handed, unethical business practices that are supposed to be working for the people but instead work for their own interests. Your ploy did not work.

Thanks to the responders for reinforcing our decision. We aim for profit and a good business climate, not a bunch of petty griping that pervades that village.

Anybody considering starting a business in Mount Sterling should read this topic and then think long and hard before sinking any money into that place.

I see the Neff building is for sale, and the stores and apartments are off th4e table. Perhaps We're not the only ones who changed our minds because of the town's podunk-minded complainers and snipers.

Without businesses to pay income and property taxes, you can pay for your own services and drive to Grove City or Washington for your goods and services. Have fun with that.

No businesses have been successful in Sterling in decades because people go out of town for their needs and are not loyal to the town they live in or their neighbors who try to start a business. Besides that they have to work with a Mayor and town council to say nothing of town administrator that do not know what they are doing with different rules for different people. It has been a long time since they had any business minded people with common sense in office to run the town, maybe Heather Rice will change that but it remains to be seen.

<quoted text> I would like to clear the air here joe Johnson did not waive the deposit of the water he actually paid for it out of his own pocket and yes I belive he would do the same for any business in town as for moving equipment a couple guys did help move out a piece of equipment that was here but it was at 7am so I believe it was before their shift im sorry if this upsets people in town but I really just thought joe Johnson and his crew was just trying to help me get back on my feet not trying to screw the town out of anything. I support the town and I have had great support from the town and I hope it continues! I like it here in town and hope to stay a very long time! I believe in paying it forward so if any of the other business in town needs a helping hand come to the thirsty goat ill help all I can ! thank you all
guess who pays his salary. does he make that much money he can afford his bills plus yours !!!!!!!!!!

We have a Chamber of Commence in Mt Sterling now, let's see what they can do for getting businesses in town. The mayor, council or administrator can't run what they have to do let alone develop growth in our community. I agree with your comment about Heather Rice, so far I am impressed, but then again we can't expect her to save the town when there are 5 others on council twiddling their thumbs.

Has the council or Brooks blinked yet on the water billing problem or are they hoping it just gets swept under the rug--haven't seen anything in the paper about it.

It would only be up to the council members that are on the water committee. That would be Lowell Anderson, Dianne Spradlin and Dave Timmons.(I see nothing getting done about the billing or the quality of the water with these so called leaders)

With these 3 on that committee I will not hold my breath or hold out much hope in getting this settled without court action-----really, DAVE TIMMONS?
