March 16, 2013

The city is making progress but there is much to overcome and do. That was the theme Friday as Dunkirk Mayor Anthony J....

A neat way to balance the budget...RAISE TAXES. Who is working on getting jobs to Dunkirk? When do they meet? What's there goal or target companies. C'mon Mr. Mayor we need hope. The Ink-o-Baiter does not seem to do much except make for a fine report on a project for Fredonia State....New York State open for business??? Where? Where indeed?

If you're looking for a savior, AJ ain't it. A strong industrial base and private sector jobs in general has been lacking in Dunkirk for many years, and it's getting worse. The area's economic decline is the culmination of several decades of poor decisions made by elected leaders at every level.

Public sector jobs generally pay well and provide good bennies, but these costs are no longer affordable to those employed by an insufficient number of private sector jobs, especially when they're paid less, and in many cases, much less.

My advice has long been to move while you still can.

Greg you do realize that this article does not list everything that he talked about right?

Rumblefish, there was only one question so you didn't miss much.

Progress? Certainly not in the city. The definition of progress is to keep it simple is moving forward. The closing of carriage house is that progress? An audit that shows the city misused funds . Is that progress? There are many more but fixing the problems is not progress. You are getting to a point where you should already be. Anything after that might be considered progress. Dolce considers the Police Department contract progress? How much overtime has been paid since the signing of said contract. What progress at Cott? Is the city running the company? All smoke and mirrors typical political talk. Dunkirk is not experiencing progress. No new companies are setting up shop. Taxes have not decreased. I suggest Mr. Dolce you look up the definition of progress in the dictionary then make your speech to how many 30 people. Cut wages, cut overtime, cut back on spending, attract new business so that people can work and eat. That Mr. Dolce is progress.

Mr. Dolce fail to address the real problem. Where are we going to get the money for the next round of pay raises? Oh, I know, let's increase taxes ad water rates!!!!!! The truth is that the city is near death and no one seems to care.

does anyone else find it curious that when it came time for the question and answer session the on line broadcast abruptly ended we watched it on ustream and lipstick on a pig could well cover it

He put the lipstick on the pig but it is still a pig. Carriage House, Cott and NRG he has absolutely no influence with these companies. The decisions have been made as to their future and it is only a matter of phasing them all out entirely or minimizing them to insignificance. Funds I, II & III....sounds like robbing Peter to pay Paul. The bulb is still dimming on Dunkirk.

No mention of the water treatment plant or the Lake front wall that's collapsing into the harbor? If that wall goes then part of the water treatment plant could go with it.
