What is the deal of this ''Renter Permit''?....Hard to do upkeep on a piece of rental property when the renters won't pay the rent. Why wasn't this implemented 10 or so years ago, when it was obvious people were leaving and welfare was moving in to fill the houses? Now this sewer project !!.. Wonder what other ways they can find to squeeze more money out of this town? Dunbar has been going downhill for years, makes you wonder what is the real problem.

Have lived in dunbar approx 45yrs and can not understand what is wrong with these city leaders. Seems like they are all out for their own best interests and not the city as a whole. I know of several projects that have been turned down or ignored by city govt. that could have created the income to operate the city without having to steal from the the people(most on fixed incomes).
-rental property is already double property taxed with a portion coming to the city of dunbar.
-B&O tax paid by the investors brings the city income.
-shawnee park will lose more money this year than it would cost to get city pool fixed.
-Large majority of the commercail property in dunbar sits empty, while south chas. added over 100 new business last yr.
-Kids are treated like crap. Young families who might purchase some of these properties the landlords are buying won't purchase here until the city starts taking care of the children.
-Probably could write a book.
Dunbar could be one of the best in the valley.
