Look at the morons on the council then look at they got the cart before they got the. horse to pull it!! We need industry industry industry jobs jobs and many more jobs!! This would keep local businesses in business instead of out . I say industry and jobs first is the HORSE TEAM to pull the heavy cart. Festival city and Bull Sh*t comes later!! Not the idiots on the councils thoughts. they are azz backwards from what the people need to help them eat live and survive but its evident they dont give a rats asz about the people only thing they care about is lining their own pockets and not a damn thing the people need to exist.

You hit the nail right on the head. big man!! Need. changes in leadership fo sho like all new faces. for the. welfare of the peiple not projects thats. Tremendous in costs over what it normally would be. done by out of state people that doesnt contribute a damn thing to the local struggling tax payers supporting this place year after year. New faces not in it to line their pockets but the peiple that believed in them enough to vote them in people that will continue to do for the people once they are in office!!

And where are you going to find these people? The complainers usually want someone else to do the work. They won't do anything themselves.

Another post from the same Topix stalker who only a few months ago would defend this town as if it could do no wrong and the people in it were perfect. A town official pisses him off and suddenly he sees the light. Pathetic.

Actually a lot of you have made valuable points. Entertainment venues that are expensive to go to are catering to the ones here with good jobs and money to play with. I agree that before we spend tax dollars for economic development on entertainment we should secure some industries in this area with jobs for more than a few people. All we are getting here in way of businesses besides therma flite is retail and food service jobs. Others like shut down work at Lion Oil and El Dorado Chemical are temp jobs and a lot of those workers from out of town. One reason we are having trouble attracting new businesses and industry is no good housing or recreation available to families of workers. We need family oriented recreation that does not involve belonging to a club or group. Maybe more jobs that ay above min wage because it will never get better till e can make enough money to live and have a reason to stay here for recreation instead of going elsewhere.

Right but the idiots running this city. cant see it that way they run things to benefit themselves not the residents struggling from day to day in efforts to exist here as we all know!! Look at the paper of the pages and pages of delinquent taxes this would never be in a place with jobs and industry.The rich are sitting up there like a hawk on prey waiting to grab these properties on back taxes behind closed doors grabbing property for pennies on the actual dollar values.. Look at the crime rate and jail population the unemployment the small businesseses dropping out like flies because people simply dont have money to spend. With things being like they are why do officials spend our tax dollars for out of state workers rather than hiring the local contractors and pouring our tax dollars back into the community??? Out of state and town contractors remember the craftsmens perdeim travel and living expenses has to be added into the costs .. No way they can underbid the locals with the other added expenses. it does not take a genius to figure that out either. If the local contractors was even higher than out of state it would still be a win for it would help the locals that support this place exist and put the revenues in locals pockets supporting these projects. Somebody somewhere or some people in office has to be benefitting not us for real!! Its a simple no brainer. Being able to live have a job and exist before rich people expensive festival activity any day whatever they try to say!! People have money to exist and money to spend everything else will fall in place from there this city will grow not sink like the Titanic!! Solution replace mayor and every single old face on that ECC Then this place will take a complete turnaround!! Its a hopeless case and will continue to sink until then. Its nit hard to see

Im not lazy you low life bastard and U dont have the balls to say this to my face or any of the other many unemployed residents here . Facts is its not right for the citiens here to go out of town out of state to earn a living and bring back to this sorry ass poor managed city to pay real estate and pp taxes when it could be the other way around they reside here they work here that would be very possible if the focus of tax dollars was to fill the industrial park with industry and build a new one give industry incentives to motivate large employers to come here instead of tax them and rip them off until they leave town pilgrims pride was a perfect example that cut over 600 jobs and hurt lots of needy familys not to count the growers and trucking companies hauling the stuff . officials need to focus on priorities for the residents first festivals and bull shit later .. Yoyare one self centered ignorant inconsiderate heartless bastard is all I can say.

Any sizable business looking at El Dorado as a new location will see way more negatives than positives. Land is too expensive, transportation is limited, the education system is bad, and the available workforce is small and unskilled.
If a business needs to recruit skilled workers from outside the area, many prospective employees don't want to move their families to El Dorado.
The El Dorado Promise is seen by many as a drawing card, but its value is lessened if it forces your kids to go to a mediocre school.
The place to start is to improve the quality of the education system and ensure that new graduates are well-qualified to move forward in life. In my opinion, the main reason this doesn't happen is because there are too many people who think "what we have is good", or good enough.

I would be more than happy to slap you in the face with the truth, you lazy assclown. Just name when and where you'd like your eyes to be opened to reality, and I'll be happy to oblige. I don't know where the hell you get your incorrect information about local workforce availability, but you're definitely showing your ignorance. I am inconsiderate to lazy, entitled, self-centered losers that cry like a littlebitch because someone doesn't come knocking on their door with a job offer. If you don't get out and look, you don't deserve one. Now, if only the government would stop giving your fatass food stamps and welfare, you'd be a little more motivated. Now, get up and change your life in 2014!
