Lets look and see what Marshville can offer a new business.
Could it be a town manager that is anti-business?
Could it be a town manager that said christmas lights cost too much?
Could it be ridiculous water and sewer fees?
Or possibly the biggest tax increase of the century?
Who would come to a town with such management?
Sorry, but you asked.
No apologies needed. I asked. But unless there is some kind of change in this town, it will never amount to anything. Everyone will still have to go to Monroe for things they need that the local stores don't have and we will still have to eat from the same restaurants that everyone is getting tired of. I don't know what kind of manager Locust has, but maybe someone should check into it. They seem to be really booming with business. I know it is a different county but they have went from a town with nothing to a town that has more to offer its citizens.

Let me help in that last comment. The biggest problem with this town is that the town manager doesnt care about businesses, she is too concerned with showing everyone that she is the boss, most would relate her to someone from East Berlin in the 1940s. This town council would rather have a "manager" that controls every move rather than have a town "administrator" who would have more time to recruit business to town and less time to supervise the towns every move. They have very capable employees and they dont utilize these people because she has the need to control everything. From what I have been told she requires every question to go through her before it can be answered. We cant run a town or business like this for much longer. If they decide to keep a manager then they should consider a business recruiter or economic developer as well. As told in the newspaper she is here until March 31, think she will do any good by keeping her here. Kick her butt out the door and get a new one that is business friendly, citizen friendly, and not with a Hitler mentality.
