this could be a great thing , we need to get the vacant and non caring landlords on board . Untill that happens our neighborhoods are doomed . everytime a cheap rental comes up for sale , it is scooped up by these landlords that turn then into pathstone properties . In fact you have a landlord on your commitee that does this very thing . one of the other landlords in question is good friends with our city manager .
I don't see change coming anytime soon . I wouldn't dare mention who they are . That would be name calling even if its a true statement and pointing out these people are not tolerated in this blog or for the matter of fact this city .
Taking back our city would have to include some teeth into the currant laws regaurding landlords and the percentage of pathstone properties compared to what it used to be 10 years ago needs to addressed .
The other thing that needs to be addressed is the money drain that occurs with city school system . Our top five adminstartion account for over a half million dollars . Non of wich live in batavia . So where does you tax money go to ? Why isn't there a residence requirement for our top Admin.
Good enough to work here but not good enough to live here mentality has to go .
We need those good paying jobs to go to people that are invested or will invest in our city .
