Should the Economic Development directorâs position be full time? At least two Carroll County Commissioners believe so. During the Dec. 27 meeting, Commissioners Tom Wheaton and Larry Garner both expressed their desire to increase the position from half time to full time.
If the county commissioners grant this part time to a full time spot, they better be prepared for the deputies to open up the FOP Union Contract. Two and a half years at a contract freese with no raises.(See below)
APPROVED a memorandum of understanding with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) regarding the extension of the union contract for the Carroll County Sheriffs Department for the period of Jan. 1, 2011, through Dec. 31, 2011.

Lets see some real economic development first!
Lets see some tax and land incentives to lure industry to the area.
Lets actively woo businesses from the higher taxing east coast bloc states.
Lets develop some modern infastructure thats can support industry, ie modern roads with more than a crawling speed limit, bypass schools and towns etc.
Who wouldnt take the Malvern/ Waynesburg bypass enroute to Canton?
Or we can just invent another gov job to sit around and gab in coffee shops....
Want an easy one?? Go get Smith and Wesson, Dan Wesson arms, or any east coast firearms manufacture.
Selling points: 1. By moving here you are supporting your customer base, not communities, states and politicians who seek to destroy you. Why fund (taxes) your own demise?
2. Lower tax rates.
3. Non union labor force.
4. Lower labor costs due to economic standards of the area.
5.Lower crime/less security/less loss
6.Offer land and tax incentives.
Just a thought..
