I guess it is more ethical to just raise taxes..... Either everyone benefits or everyone pays. Looks like everyone is going to be paying. I will be voting against any proposed tax increases.

Cohen seems like the type of person who complains and has an issue with everything. Now he'll be complaining the town has no money. Then when we get taxed he'll complain about that. The type of person who's never happy unless he's voicing opposition or negativity. Reminds me of a lot of people who comment on these articles.

I see that Jimbo / Cruiser are at it again. Everyone knows you're just one person talking to yourself. Look at the times of the posts everyone; what are the chances at 12:22 and 12:24 AM that these two would both be online at exactly the same time? Hint: It's a female and her first name starts with a (D)ianna. And in case no one has noticed, there is no discussion on council that I've seen reported about any tax increases needed in EP. So what's with the scare tactics? Always a sign of weakness. Just a way to try to bully people into thinking like you. Typical political ploy. When you have no other ammo, raise the specter of higher taxes to keep everyone in line, direct attention away from the real issues.

This town has no money. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what a town with no money does to get money. Especially a town that can't even profit from a concession stand lol. Taxes will soon be raised just wait and see.

It was a pleasure to speak against the fracking last night. We as citizens proved our displeasure with it. I have my own screen name Cruiser and don't say again I am someone else. We were at the meeting last night speaking, we heard no one speak for fracking.

Arguing, delving for information, holding council accountable for out town, searching for the facts, all needs to take place. This is a big deal for EP, not something to be taken lightly. The impacts can be prosperous, or can end up being the ruin of the village in the end. The people have a say, and they made that perfectly clear last night. No ONE spoke in favor of this unitization, but many showed outrage over the possibility of this taking place. Time for EP to take a step back and look at this closer, and all the consequences. It's not just about the money, it's about the towns people winning...not councilmen. As stated on this forum a qhile back...The voters voted these council people into office. So, therefore, the people have a right to say their piece and be heard, and have their word count.

Cruiser: Just keep raising that false tax issue to keep everyone off-topic and scared. Last I heard the town was in the black, the 2014 budget is balanced, the streets are getting paved, the town is looking better and better every week thanks to manager Monteleone. I was also at the meeting last night and it was great to see citizens there taking part, and a real debate about the issues. Everyone there left with more information from both sides. That's more productive than the ridiculous personal spatting that takes place here.

How about we forget about raising taxes and the oil and gas. What is really going to help this village rake in some money is to legalize marijuana. The coffee stop can become the pot stop. We could pave our roads with gold

Leave it to the people of East Palestine to let a golden opportunity slip right through their hands. I better not hear a single one of you in the future complaining the surrounding towns who go for this are in such better shape then E.P.

Citizens of EP....do not sign anything until you personally talk with the oil companies, and have the facts. This is your property values at stake. Good bet you are not getting all the facts from Mr. Councilman Extraordinaire. What do you really know about him? He just walks into EP, and runs it? Listen to what he says. He thinks EP Citizens are stupid hillbillies. Wake up.

I guess that's what ep needs to do keep taking steps backward instead of moving forward. Every other town in the area will benefit from oil/gas and ep will just become the new leetonia of the area. Looks like jason/hadenough pops her head up again to give another uneducated thought. We are doomed

Taco bell is going to start serving breakfast in March! Maybe if this town had some oil and gas money we could have a taco bell. I guess I will have to drive to columbiana to get my waffle taco.

Think I'm just going to move to columbiana. Ep is always trying to keep up with columbiana but after this latest blunder ep will never recover while columbiana continues to thrive. Only problem is that no one will buy my house because nobody wants to live in ep. Property value in this town is garbage and will continue to be garbage.

Blunder is the best word. This will forever be known as 'E.P.'s Blunder'
