What are you smoking. when they see the projects & the lowlifes that have taken over the town they will buy somewhere else just like most people who work here. Go to the court house & look at what it is appraised at then cut that price in half & you might find some fool to buy it. I do not care how much renovation you have done. Your house is worth nothing here. If it is paid for cut your loses & run.

U ppl down osceola an the ppl in it so much its pitiful, if its dat bad y haven't u moved. But to b honest its the opd an the ppl that's in the office that's killin the town, they dun trained the rookies to mess with ppl, can't even take a ride without gettin stopped for nothing. Wat is the point of putting super d's in osceola we have enuf drug stores, hell the ones we gat how bout u donate sum money an make them betta. Wats going on with makin the super walmart, how bout betta clothing an shoe stores, building betta homes that's reasonible for the community bcuz harshmen killin, how bout lowering the light bills bcuz the powerplant don't get none of its power energy from osceola, we need sum betta business bcuz quality garage ain't full of nothing but a lot of shady trees an the owner swear he dnt know shyt about nothing jes sum rip offs, str8 messed up my kar unplugging shyt an clipping wires dat dnt need to be cut. Wat about improving the hospital the e.r. is ripoffs I went fa a bad headcold they did nuthing but gave me a high ass bill an drew a lot of blood like they really doin sumn, I shuldve went an gat sum thermaflu. An for my ending thought osceola is not fina be an all white town its mostly black so stop an everybody know that you all want all tha business to be going toward the interstate way an everything ova tha tracks y'all want to be made fields.

Osceola will never get any better if people continually run it down..Who would want to buy anything here if all it gets is negative publicity...

Osceola will never get any better as long as the projects & hud dominate the housing market. Remember the project are full of criminals that leach off the leaches that leach off the taxpayer. Osceola is broke as the result of poor business decisions made by our civic leaders. Our light bills are going through the roof because of the power plant deal. It is a big mess that they will not talk about. The City is shaking down employees to get them to pay their electric bills they can not afford based on the salaries they make. They are going to start garnishing wages to get them to pay. You must remember most city employees are uneducated & make roughly $10 an hour. Not even a living wage. Only the department head make the green working for the City & that is a fact.

Did the city ever get any money out of Ameris? That bunch of lowlifes left a huge bill when they left town. Politics.

That is a good question & I do not know the answer. The city probably does not want us to know. The county taking over the hospital in Osceola is another black hole. I'm sure the next step will be to raise property tax again to keep it open even though the facility could not do anything for you if you have a serious medical condition. They will just send you to Memphis or Jonesboro. The hospital in Osceola is nothing more than a place to recover from treatment from another hospital. A big waste of money. They have no modern testing equipment & the place is filthy. People just show up @ the emergency room for frivolous aliments or to have a bandage changed. My dog's vet hospital is cleaner than that place. The doctors there could not diagnose a cold.

The facts are the facts. You can not sugar coat it. We have a City hall that is in disarray and electric bills that are off the chart. The town is infested with criminals, welfare types, and housing projects. Lets be honest; would you want to raise your kids in this environment & send them to school in Osceola? I know I would not. No informed parent would.

There is nothing to buy here. Only ghetto food & welfare products.

I'm not talking about the OPD Officers & FD. I'm talking about the smuck on a truck & offic workers. Yes OPD officers & FD are on an entirely different retirement deal(LIFA) & are paid so so but not the smuck on garbage truck. The city's retirement plan stinks for all others. Yea the clowns at the OPD & FD have new trucks & cars but I bet they do not own them outright. Most spend more than they can afford. With the limited hours they work they have another job or businesses on the side. Remember the FD works 24 on & 48 hours off a good deal. I agree with you on that point. The FD is the best paying easy job in the city. The OPD officers work 7 out of a 14 day period. A sweet deal as well
