Should city police and streets and parks personnel been cut to help the City of Williamsport balance its 2013 budget?

  1. Yes, the administration and City Council had no other choice.
  2. No, I would have been willing to pay even more in taxes to maintain the current manpower levels.
  3. I would have preferred council keep the tax increase at one mill but come up with other ideas for cutting expenses than the layoffs.

Most area companies are on wage freezes (or worse). Cost of living increases are great when times are good. The bigger question is how can the city be in such turmoil? Hotel permits have been issued like they are going out of style. It is frustrating to see a city that has experienced over building a century ago not learn from its past. I really hope there are plans in place as to what will happen to the dozen hotels once they become vacant as well.
