With all the drugs and other crime going on around town, the cops can't be everywhere all the time. Get with neighborhood watch,or just get a gun and protect your own property like I do. Just make sure you kill the little bastuuuurds, or you will get sued(make sure they have a weapon).
i have this nagging feeling that i know who it could be, but i cant prove it.i dont believe anyone around here is interested in neighborhood watch. hopewell just seems to be going down hill.

people hanging together watching out for one another. that's the way neighborhood watch is suppost to work. but go ahead, sit in front of the tv while your next door neighbor's house is broken into. your the problem not the answer.

excuse me, you dont know me and i do watch my neighbors house and they watch ours. but everyone on this st is not going to do that. i dont have time to sit in front of a tv . i take care of a disabled husband..many people on this st dont want to be bothered, nevertheless watch your house . you have no clue and yet you run your mouth.

I have a family member that volunteers with the HPD. He is always walking the neighborhood, escorting funeral services through the town, he even has fingerprinted Hopewell Children for safety.

Hopewell has its problems,yes. But once we get rid of the aholes on city council, the city manager,and CA we may have a chance.Getting rid of the GOBs and the other slum lords will help. The rental property with drug dealers, rif-raf, and trash has got to go. The apathetic people of this town have to either get off their azzes or get the F out of town. Hell, even Petersburg looks better then Hopewell right now.

i dont think hopewell will ever change, as too many drugs among other things. the police dont seem to be doing their jobs. someone been messing with my house every morning between 3 and 5:30am and there is banging on the house , hose has holes in it, and water in front of house , when someone turned the hose on. bags ripped in trash cans. was reported to police , anybody caught etc nah.being going on now for over a month. when ever my house can get sold, i will be gone from here.

I feel for you, jenn. But the cops can't be everywhere. We have scumbag druggies here and punks out the azz. The mayor is spending money like Obama and the GOBs let her do it. Pelham gets away with crimes, the judges let her. Same crap all over. You see soeone messing with your stuff, SHOOT THEM!

What I'd like to know is if Hopewell is having budget problems, etc...Then why in the hell does Hopewell have 4 city building inspectors? What the heck justifies "4" inspectors? There is no active building projects going on... No real housing being built, If any... I'd think 1 would be sufficient, heck ok, maybe even 2?? but "4" on the payroll? All some of them do is ride around in their car, nit picking, sending hateful letters, often false claims.... just trying to justify their jobs...
I say FIRE AT LEAST 2 OF THESE IDIOTS AND SAVE THE CITY SOME $$$.

dee, let me ask you ONE Question. Who is raising those little monsters that you dislike so much? Parents who don't give a rats azz for anything other then drugs, booze, or what ever their welfare check can buy. This is not a race thing, because the white trash is as bad if not worse then the blacks, or Latinos. They let the little basssssturdsss join gangs. Most are single parent households with no father anywhere in sight. This isn't just Hopewell, it's everywhere. And you can thank the liberals "cradle to grave" BS. Don't complain if you don't have an answer, and don't run either, you can't go far enough. Let's hear some ideas how to fix it, OK? Let's work together to save our city,state, country, and world. OK?

We need to help one another, not help ourselves.

Actually, it has been more then a couple of years. We have had the "Gang of 4" owned by the GOBs for many years( the gang has changed a little). The GOBs back the candidates for election and re-election to do the bidding of the GOBs. That bidding is to protect the low rent rental properties here. If Hopewell does poorly, the rental property will prosper. WHO DOES THAT BENEFIT? Look around town at who stands to gain the most from keeping Hopewell a slum. These old pukes need to go. Don't they have enough money(they can't spend all they have)? Before you vote for someone again, check to see WHO is giving money for their election. If it's the GOBs, don't vote for them.
Tax Assessment are CRAZY

Hopewell, VA

This city is assessing taxes on real estate at more than 100% of what the property is even worth!
No other county I know of does that...Chesterfield being one of the highest rates assess at 10% BELOW market value.
My old repo home is being assessed at $106,000. I went in with a Current Appraisal showing a value of only $50,000. at best for house and land. So I got my assessment lowered to 96,000.??WTF?
Even if my place was to sell commercial/business I couldn't begin to get that much.
What if you walked into food lion and spent $50 on food, but FL charged you taxes on $106. worth of food You complain, but they say... we don't care about you, we want more money so pay it anyway.
A lot of people need to come together and take this CROOKERY to the State level for help
It's one thing to want to lower your taxes, but it's another when you walk in with PROOF of value and still get screwed.

Who did you vote for on city council? If it was one of the "Gang of 4", you deserve what you got. Hey, you wouldn't want the city manager to have to take a pay cut? These clowns have got to go.
