Regarding Daytons high taxes, if you own property in Dayton, check your tax bill (city & county) you will see the school system get more tax money than the city. Unfortunatly the school system is broken.
The kids hanging on the streets should be home doing homework.

Agreed, it causes the community to have a black eye. You got 23-30 year old's. GROWN ASS MEN hanging out on the street corners, come on now guys...un-employment isn't that bad is it??? Everyday see a pack of 5 kids on bikes and they're no older than 8 years old. Cigarettes in their mouths and every other word is "F#ck". Where is the damn parenting at? And the last rant is the crack whores that are like 8 months pregnant walking down the main drag asking for random ammounts of change when her boyfriend/baby daddy is 15 feet in front of her. yeah...okay lady here's 68 cents that you asked for. Like what the hell, do you desperately need a polar pop that bad? Drop the needle bitch, you're 10cc's away from death.

I agree that the "Avenue" in Dayton needs cleaned up. I also see where they are trying to make things look better. Getting businesses into some of the unused buildings would be a great improvement. But dissing on the town will not fix anything. If you want things fixed instead of refusing to take your business to town why don't you take it there and offer your opinion on ways to fix things to City Counsel. Then you could say that you helped Dayton improve.

I think Andy aka Rankle and Redmond aka Barney should patrol the street at night with their one bullet and clean up the town.. lol

The city is being infected by older teenage pushers Selling heroin to the children who have no idea of the consequences. Sure there are a lot who know and still use but its not lime when we were kids, pot was a bug deal and it didn't hook you and turn you into the zombies we see walking down the avenue day and night.

That's sad it isn't considered "loitering". The people that work in AA Wok seem very nice and hard working. It's sad they are trying to have a nice business and crap stands right outside of it. That's why nothing will be remain nice in Dayton. The teenagers and drunks, ruin it all. It's embarrassing that when I bring family/friends around, that there are people that do not know how to use a crosswalk and wear nothing but wife beaters... Instead of NKY building trolleys and condos, they need to be focusing on the kids and enforcing laws. It's funny how I see the same people in/out of jail all the time walking the streets. What ever happened to 3 strikes and you're out. Does that law not apply within Dayton, KY?
so wearing a wife beater is a bad thing? really i dont even live in dayton anymore but maybe you all should lay off the kids hanging around. hey maybe offer them a job.i think you would be amazed by them taking you up on it. and what about the dunks that go to every bar in town and believe me the dunks are everywhere and most are the so called up standing people. i lived lived ther for 4 years and witnessed it my self the getting dunk and acting like the children they insist on putting down.

. There is no 3 strike law in Dayton...or in Kentucky, or in most of the United States. As far as the drunks going to every bar in town, what is there,,,2 bars? Its simple and it begins with parents!

In my opinion, the focus should be on doing things that will actually benefit the ppl who've lived in these towns all of their lives. Don't get me wrong, fixing places up & new businesses opening in a town can be a great thing..but it doesn't always do a lot for the people who've been there all their lives.

What good is having condos go up, new shops & restaurants when there's really nothing for the kids in the town to do BUT - to hang out or "loiter" & possibly cause trouble. I'd say most of the ppl who move in the condos & go to those new shops and restaurants aren't even from the town, or haven't lived here all their lives.

It's not just Dayton this is true for either, same goes for Newport too..Take all the new places in Newport for instances, like the levee..the majority of businesses there seem to be restaurants. With the exception of AMC theater & maybe a couple shops, there's nothing there for the kids in the town really. Heck, to be honest, the same goes for a lot of the adults, who've been born & raised here. I'd say most of the ppl who go there are from Ohio, other towns or states. Even the new Kroger's is like that, take a look at the car plates in the parking lot..most of the time a good majority of them are Ohio plates. In the mean-time what about the kids in town, what is there for them to do? Sure, they can go see a movie at the AMC, after that though..then what? If they hang around to socialize with friends they risk getting run off for "loitering".

I'm not against progress, I just think the people who've lived in these towns all their lives, esp. the kids - should be thought of first. They shouldn't be treated like outcasts or "trash" in their own hometowns..esp by ppl who aren't really from here. Maybe if they were thought of first and had things come in for them to enjoy you wouldn't see them "loitering" all the time.

The Main Street guy is not friendly, you never see him and has nothing going on in this city. He fits in with the Mayor and city administrator, doing nothing but holding back the city and causing issues!

I was raised in Dayton many years ago. I no longer live there but drive through the town here and there. I see some very interesting people hanging on the corners that would frighten most people. If you want to attract people to Dayton, you might want to make it safe and attracting! I hear they have a Main Street coordinator, not sure what he has going on, but it seems like not much. I would really like to see this river city get its act together and get with what the other cities are doing! I know the flood wall project is trying to take off, but you have to work with what you have now! The river from will be a bonus!

Dayton has a wonderful YMCA that is headed by a very outgoing and caring young lady. It's a great place for young adults to socialize in a learning environment and keep them out of trouble.

The Main Street Manager has always been very receptive to my requests. In fact, I can't think of one request that he hasn't gone out of his way to help with and is quite accessible.
