Ironton leaders’ decision making is puzzling

I am very concerned with the direction the city is headed in. It appears financial problems will result in serious reduction in services in virtually all areas as more and more employees are laid off to balance the budget without increasing fees.

Neither the mayor nor the city council has been able to solve this problem or present any alternative solutions for the consideration of the citizenry.

Perhaps some of you have some ideas.

When replacement of Ironton High School became such a hot issue a few years ago, several town meetings were held which were instrumental in illuminating all sides of the various issues and resulted in the excellent situation we have today.

The mayor and city council could present their case and answer citizens’ questions about alternatives, giving the pros and cons of each.

It worked before, why not try again?
