Have you ever seen Barberton's Courthouse? Maybe they should consider following in the Fall's steps. All buildings get and need replaced at some point (schools). Would you rather have tax payers footing the bill?
BTW, evryone always kwows to behave in CF municipality. Kudos to the CF Judges!

Hm...Bob? Have you ever checked into the disparities between the "fines" levied by various "mayor's courts" in the area for the same offense???

If you think the court costs are bad here now just wait and see what they will be when the court moves to Stow.

Why "Injustice", sanctions should make you remember to not screw up again. Northern Summit County is beautiful and a very safe place to live thanks to the folks at the court house

Years ago I almost rear ended a Chevy Blazer who changed lanes in front of me, and stopped to make a left turn. I had to go around him quickly and avoid a car from hitting my backside. I was pulled over for speeding; in the Falls. Why the officer didn't see the Blazer almost cause an accident, I'll never know.
I quit shopping in the Falls for a long time to make up for that speeding ticket. They get very little business from me now.
Maybe all their speed traps and excessive ticket writing, discouraged other shoppers, and we made the State Road Shopping Center take a dive. Just a thought:)

BTW, Mr. Dyer, your use of quotations was so inappropriate. None of the judges have "taken" any money from me. But, then again I haven't received any tickets in years. You would rather that the judges apply for grants (taxpayer) like every other courthouse?

Ummm... Yes because I don't care if Hoover or the criminals in his court have cushy accomodations or are over crowded.

I'm tired of the mantra "don't get a ticket and they wont take your money". Ticket getters are also tax payers. In fact if not for us "criminals" many government bureaucrats would be out of a job. Ticket getters are economic stimulators. Hoover should personally thank me each time I park illegally. It's my inconsideration that has built his courthouse.

I lived in the Falls in the 70s, and back then it was known on CB Radio as "ticket city." I remember the people there generally as being on the frugal side which makes this even more infuriating.

That must have been a long time ago. And I would venture to say there are some facts missing from your story.
