Have lived in Dunbar 45yrs. Also own business in Dunbar. Family goes back approx 100yrs in Dunbar, with many being community volunteers. Love this town, but hate to see what is going on in city Govt.
1. Stealing from the children. Charging bingo approx $59,000 rent.
2. Evicting car club from building.
Saying state law requires city to get full mkt. value for properties. Funny Dunbar is leasing Shawnee for $1 per year. Same law should be in effect if it is state law.
3. Raising garbage fee.
If Dunbar wasn't so anti-business, some of the empty comm. buildings could get occuppied. There are a bunch.
4. Fix the pool. City says too much to fix pool. One of the nicest pools in the valley. Too much crime in past several years @ shawnee for me to take my kids there.
5. Forced Mexican restaurant on roxalana to close. Dunbar would not allow alcohol. What a joke. Would not bother residents and sits next to metro drug unit bld.
Anti-children and anti-business.
6. City treats their business very poorly and does not help promote business in Dunbar. Approx 80% percent of city budget comes from B&O tax.
7.Dunbar creates laws for the citizens to follow, but is not willing to abide by their own laws. Never hold another to a higher standard than you would hold yourself.

Your are so right look at Dunbar 10 years ago and now... It's dwindled., no business and no money... Dunbar will turn into one large ghetto/project.. All that is there are a few elderly people who won't move cause they are naive and a bunch of hoodrats who do drugs and live of of HUD in their slums
same ole, same ole

Roger Wolfe is looking better and better to the town, is he not? The way he was treated was a shame, and the things he was accused of were all lies. Dunbar prospered while he was mayor, now look at it....ghetto city.. Such a shame
