Metroplex is for select projects , that meets Ray Gillen's requirements. Not necessarily the needs of the community. He has always been evasive with projects and numbers. Reading this article I really don't see a large improvement that warrants or supports the Metroplex project.

And in reality walking away doesn't always happen for officers or the citizens. It would be great if everything were that simple, somethings escalate. However the point is to respect and keep in mind to work for each memember of the community with respect and taxpayors pay high taxes - work together!

the remark "your little dispute that you can't handle yourself with a tenant" is rude and uncalled for - tax payors deserves better respect than that. Now if it were to have gotten out of hand you would have said you should have called the police. What I see there is a no win! Try changing the attitudes and remember you choose a career to serve the public. ! Just saying !!!

Its strange how some businesses and landlords are held accountable but others get repreives from drainage systems, alarms etc. Code should be able to test - notify fire department and or company maintaining alarm service of test and the are set off manually, that's how its tested. Sprinklers are horribly exspensive, but are a great asset, perhaps the city or some kind of funding should be provided?

I can't agree more with tonijean613. We can not control people, all we can do is the best we can to maintain our investments and the safety of others.

Code enforcement may have overlooked the requirement for sprinklers, which they do overlook quite a few things that are required (drainage systems). I own a 3 unit, several years ago it was according to city that I put in the alarm system, which I did. Even though it was grandfathered, due to it being a 3 story building they had made it a requirement. Maybe I was just a choosen one, which seems to go on with code. Procedures in code enforcement really do need to be strongly investigated and a councilman agrees with me.

Congratulations !!! Addictions are a huge silent problem, wish you all the luck with the book and your life. Sorry it took prison to get clean, a similar book and excellent read is "Cocked and Loaded" by Richard Broom.

Congrats Tyler !! so glad you have turned your life around, addictions are very difficult and often misunderstood. Addiction awareness and support is needed, thank you for doing your part. Often relocating is needed and it has worked.

Teenages need and should be held accountable for their actions. Sorry they do know better or should and if they don't its time to learn. Sorry but the teenager was wrong.

Mayor doesn't seem to have control much less knowledge of whats going on ? Is that for convenience or whatever!? There are a lot of things that should be investigated in that city!
