Loain-city in decline. Posted On: 7/6/2011 7:24:50 AM
I lived in Lorain for over 40 years of my life. It used to be a nice
place to grow up and then raise a family.
I return every year to visit family and meet up with old friends. When I visit there, I have to stay in a motel outside of this city of 70,000
because there are no hotels or motels in Lorain. A few years ago,on one
of my visits I went to the city maintained? cemetery and found very tall
grass and overturned and misplaced gravestones throughout.
The roads in town are atrocious and at times treacherous. What does
this city do with all of the taxes collected? They have property taxes,
state income taxes,and city income taxes. I realize this city has lost
most of its industry base,but,what has the city gov't done to attract
I currently reside in Florida,where all we have is a property tax,
which is comparable to that of Lorain. You could not pay me enough
to return to live in Lorain.
