I have live in the city most of my life. This is the most corrupt city in the nation. They extort money from the residents , by selective harassment of city codes that they change to suite their needs whenever they want to.
The city had money to fix the sewage systems and spent it to keep their friends an family working who they gave jobs to.So they raised the sewage rate to cover their ass.It went from $10.00 to $55.00 + treatment fees.
The Federal Government needs to look into this.
The city has laid off 8 firemen just so that they can keep their friends working in city hall.They say that is was done to protect the people and their property.
The city is ripe for major crime because their is only one police officer on duty at each end of the city which is 13 miles long. All a criminal has to do is get some of his buddies together and cause a disturbance at one end of the city and rob a bank at the other end of the city and they can get away.
Also the city do not want jobs with in the city.
The major employment for the people is public assistance.
The city has maybe 15,000 people living their.
The city is dead and the best thing that can happen to the city is for another flood to come and take what is left off the face of the earth.
To sum it all up johnstown is not a place to move to or live in.
