Let me be the first to break in this new Thread.
We have another water main leak in the same spot just west of Jenkins auto. Is this not the same place we have dug up numerous times. Would the town be better off using a contractor to repair these leaks and the roadway.? Would it not be cheaper in the long run.

Only until the City gets additional monies to complete the replacement of its main water lines, which hopefully will be when the SCBG's are awarded this coming March.

So, after the main water line is replaced..the city will repair every street and sidewalk in Salem ..right? If not..Then stop with the new programs and work on getting that taken care of..If you can't clean up the junk yards in the city at least fix the streets and sidewalks !!

Next question,why do they work on the same problem time after time.
Do we need to contract out the work? The pot hole is getting deeper and will damage peoples cars.
Get the job done CM. Manage the city like your paid to do.

24 month's has passed it's an illegal surcharge. Now it's a unauthorized tax on us.
Read From the State's records:
On February 8, 2006, the WDA filed a response to the City of
Salem's responses to the Staff's questions and indicated that, based upon
the information that it had available to it, the WDA believes that a
$2.00 per 1,000 gallon surcharge would eliminate the deficiency of the
City of Salem in fourteen ( 1 4 ) to twenty-four ( 2 4 ) months, depending upon
usage levels.

Yeah,they can call each other on their taxpayer supplied cell phones.
How about downloading a ring tone on us too. Maybe "This ole town ain't what it used to be".

Sounds like Salem CM will not be able to force clean up of garage on East end of Town. Commission says it has to be an un-inhabited structure off the foundation or roof damage. They certainly have a good roof on the dump. Also they say no fines for bad paint.

Also junk yards are not included in the new law. So if you have 10 junk cars sitting around no way to remedy that situation.

Will this law stand up in court. Looks like a lot of ambiguous wording . Once precedents are set it waters down the law. In other words if you make exception for one then you must make exception for others correct?

Precedent is not an issue. Selective enforcement is not a defense. The junk yard problem does not fall under the new ordinances. The County has had a salvage yard ordinance that it does fall under that has been in effect for many years. the overall controlling law on salvage yards is Chapter 17, Article 23 of the WV Code.

So there is no way to stop people from piling up junk cars and tires and scrap car parts in town ?? This isn't some knid of health hazard ? What about the families that live beside this ??

City has requested a legal opinion on whether it can levy it's B&O tax on SIU. Don't know if they have received it yet.
