Hey concerned & backdoor, i never ran anywhere. As for the riots at RR high seems like it was always 3-4 on one in the halls. Jungle mentality is what it is. I guess sitting at the computor is all there is to do this time of year. Don't hate because i was able to get out and your still stuck.
Simple minds may not understand but i'm me and your you and thank God for that!!! I see you still didn't address the real issue and thats what are you doing to improve anything in Rouge. If your not part of the solution then your part of the problem. Your attitudes are what has all ways held this town back. Old racsists attitudes living in the past.

Concerned, did you enter the westside or eastside( by the fire station)? As for my old crib in the projects on Goodell its still there and still has the same great view of the marsh and the mill.
You see i have deep roots there and come back every few years to visit. Many great friends are still there and i don't forget them.
I hope the city does recover but saddly its unlikely. Too many obsticals to overcome. As i stated before come out from behind your keyboard and get involved. Pointing fingers and complaining just keeps the cycle going. Run for something or go to council meetings if your really "concerned".

I have a question. If Ecorse already got rid of all DPW and Water dept. employees and Rouge just laid off all but 3, when they do consolidate services, who exactly will be doing the work? Will they bring back the employees or will they simply farm it all out to the dozens of expensive contrators already bleeding them dry?

In regards to saving money for consolidation of services.

Merge the DPW and Garbage Services. This would save money and they would not run into a legal issue of jurisdicational boundary.

Add a sales/business tax of 3/10ths of a percent on "party stores" and "bars" and designate it for the Police, Fire and emergency services (trust me they can afford it). Have the city council vote it in at a regular business meeting. Most of the owners don't care about Ecorse, they will when they are taxed. Or increase the business license license fees to double.

Have rules established for advertising in the city, in regards to the "ghetto look" (Beer & Wine) signs. This will change the perception of Ecorse and R&R.

This will work. Also Support your local Police Officers.

No disrespect intended, but your statement sounds like a victim statement. Stop the blaming the problems on external factors, take accountability and step up to the plate, remember "Can't never did nothing".

With Respect,
