I was driving that back street that takes you into hough park the other day hit one of the million potholes and busted a tire. Mannington should have money coming out of their ears with that police protection fee on your water bill and all. what the heck is this for anyway if I pay this fee manningtons finest (worst) should be out there throwing my garbage. and another thing about the police there way to many drawing paychecks for doing nothing even seenn an ex mannington cop in that lockuup paper who knows what the rest of them do behind closed doors. get rid of some of those worhtless cops might have the money to fix the roads. can you spell embezzelment dont know if I did or not. also is the mayor willing to pay for my tire and bent rim?

Sounds like you were driving to fast for the road conditio s. Its your fault you got a flat tire. Instead of bitching on here why dont you go to a couple town meetings so they can look at you and laugh. If you dont like the way things are ran in this town then you can move.

Y wouldn't people bitch about it? This town is ate up with pot holes! I agree with u! You can't have anything nice cause the roads are so bad. The people that say we shouldn't complain probably drive $500 vehicles.

this whole town is crooked in every aspect of its management. I was talking about hough st. alicejane. sound familiar. If I thought it would make a difference I would go to a council meeting. just one person cant hardly do anything needs to be a majority.

Mannington is one screwed up town.The cops dont do their jobs and the city spends money on all the wrong things. I was walking my dog the other night between 12 and 1 am and I seen several kids running around and I know they was under the age of 18. I thought there was a curfew in mannington (guess not). the police need to investigate issues that concern the citizens instead seeing whos going to get the m ost duis in one night. are children are the main priority to me. And the pothole situation is the worst that ive ever seen in a small town. all you got to do is get a load of black top and get those lazy town workers to patch them. the back road out to hough park is totaly unexceptable,If I was the mayor I would be ashamed of this town. If he dont shape I dought he gets reelected. He does nothing for this town. we might as well not have a town council all they do is set around and figure ways to hike up youre water bill. That police protection fee is the biggest line of bull ive ever heard of.

Back in the old days having to pay for ploice protection was called extortion or "rough arming".

I see why they are not filling in potholes now. The whole town is broke cause of the mayor and police chiefs actions. they should be ashamed of themselves. All the cops are leaving except for 2 then they should waive that stupid police protection fee on our water bills that fee is so absurd ive never heard anything like that before,Except on movies when the mob make people pay protection money. That money every month adds up, Thats just taking food from my kids mouths.

This town does suck they need a whole new town council they need to start from sscratch. Just picking people off the street in random would be good enough.

You can bet come fair time they will have this town in top shape. And they will go into overdrive harassing us citizens to have everything outside our home looking great. God forbid that out of town people coming in town for the fair see how Mannington really is the rest of the year. I also agree that we would be better off just picking ramdom people off the street to run our city government, heck they couldn't do any worse.

why don't you file a claim in small claims court. do a little research, as there is case law pertaining to this type of situation. The city would have no defense and you would easily win.

I agree with you on some of the pot holes but as for the hole in the turn towards hough park.. if people would slow down they could miss this hole and not get a flat. I live in hough park and have seen all the people fly through there. We have young kids who play everywhere in the neighborhood and people need to respect it. and as for the cops... well i almost got hit by a drunk guy in the 711 parking lot. We saw the cop sitting at the bank so we called 911. He never moved and then the driver drove right in front of the cop going at least 50mph in a 25 and he never pulled him over because the drunk driver was one of the "rich" people in town. To top that off we went over to the rite aid parking lot to talk to a friend and the cop came over there and told us no loitering... like come on really? We werent even being loud, yet we got in more trouble than the drunk?
