"PAINESVILLE'S NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS"
Have you made any you care to share with the rest of us?
I can't help but wonder what the coming year will bring to our community?
At this time of year its always a good time to not only enjoy the Christmas Season but to reflect on past Christmas'es. As a child,with your children, in the service away from home. Please share your story with us. Merry Christmas
No this is not a movie. Two very prominent ladies in our community have decided how to demolish Lake East Hospital. City Manager of Painesville along with the Lake Hospital CEO are going to use Ohio Issue 2 funds along with matching funds from the LHS. Clean Ohio Program [check it out on the web] will be asked for over 2 million dollars from their Brownfield Revitalization Program. [I'm assuming this is the only fund they could use.] Plus over 2 million dollars from Lake Hospital System. Bet your HMO didn't see this one coming. What a waste of Taxpayers money, along with Health Care Funds. If the County wants to pass off this problem to the city of Painesville we should not play a part in it. If Painesville cannot get the grant money will we have to pay our share out of the General Fund? Where else could the money come from?
A free brewski to the first correct answer to; What are Medina,Jerusalem,and Painesville all working together on? It has nothing to do with religion, but it is good news for us.
Painesville City Council Meeting 12/15/08 at 7:30 at city hall.
Someone has already mentioned that they heard about the "layoff" at Avery- Dennison
The heck with what the city's doing about the slowdown, a good friend asked what are some of the things we can do to make all of us recession-proof and please share them with us.
A recent comment on "Recession What Recession" grabbed my attention. even payed me a compliment.
Lake Hospital System: Snub an affront... Front page Fridays News-Herald. Maybe I'm wrong but I always thought affront meant insult, could be wrong but I don't think so.
Seems in the last post "Recession What Recession?" Andy seems to have picked up a few critics. First off I must disclose that I consider Andy and his wife Marge, to be two of my best friends, these are good people.
Went to Mondays council meeting, great presentation about the water system in Painesville. The Department Head explained with new equipment the department saved the city over $75,000 in electricity to run the water plant. The Dow dropped over 600 points today does the city have any plans when the cash stops coming in at the present rate? I also learned overtime is very high in the safety departments? Do we need more people? We have another plan for downtown Painesville this ones for cityscapes? A $75,000 grant plus $18,000 from the city, on top of the $85,000 spent on City Architecture already and $25,000 to the D.A.R.T. program, we do alot of planning around here. Have real concern about E.M.S. Fire, and Police response time to "Cobblestone Apartments" off of Heisley Rd. if Painesville Fire has to respond it 10 minutes to get there. Mr. Werner brought up Mentor Ave. becoming 3 lanes instead of 4. I thought we were trying to get people downtown, why not make it wider so we have a real four lane road? Watch on channel 12.
