While they continue to fix the smelly water, why do we have the dark mold that is in the toilets every year and is not fixed.?

Because, every know and then, you must clean your toilet--hence no mold.

Same story every year. Why doesn't Akron fix their drinking water problem each year before it becomes a yellow colored stinker?

They spent 800 Thousand dollars. To Move a house a few blocks...

But they cant get Akrons water fixed around.

How many millions on the Goodyear and Firestone deals for them to stay... But they cant take care of the most basic of needs for the people.

Great leadership there..... Who Keeps voting these clowns in?

I would check to make sure every dead voter isn't rising from the grave on voting days just to cast thier vote for Donny boy.

I can't believe it's taken this long to (AGAIN) take public notice of Akron's terrible water.

I remember posting here a couple months ago about the algal taste and smell of the city's water.

YUK! it sucks!

I live in Cuyahoga Falls (a former Akronite) & the water is fine here !!! Now my mother in-law lives in Tallmadge paying $120.00 for Akron water & sewer.. To have smelly water that would gag you every time you wash your hands or try to drink this crap totally sucks.. The smelly water issue has gone on for over 50 years now.. You would think something could be figured out by now !!! I highly recommend that Akron voters do what we did in Cuyahoga Falls with the former mayor (Don Robart), fired him & we are also doing an investigation on all the issues stemming back to 2003. By the way, we are not done yet with the issues in the Falls.. Again I highly recommend Akron do the same.. I'm certain should be able find a mayor that could Akron back on track again !!!
