The mayor and all city employees should be working to bring Williamsports property values up. Higher assessments means more tax dollars, more money for police and firemen, this is a no brainer. Officer Tim Miller lives in a 200,000$ home in Hughesville area. He has no monetary stake in property value in the city. If his home was in Williamsport and his homes value fell because of this class warfare labeling his ordinance is creating, do u think He would be pushing this??it??Maybe we should change the law that city employees need to live in the city? Did the rise in our crime occur after we changed this law?? Pride means a lot in the success of a company. As it does in the success of a city.I am proud to be a Williamsport Landlord.

"Obviously, we aren't allowed to say Her-o-in on here." - SilverFeather


There are several (apparently "evil") words that dare not be referenced, here. I'm guessing there are overly-"sensitize"/older readers, here, who fear bursting-into-flames when viewing such words. It must be in the Bible, somewhere.

Anyhow, you'll be free to use that ol' timey designation H!!

Welcome, aboard!!

MimLogue. Are the city bus drivers still required to live within city limits? For years they kept changing the rules. As far as I'm concerned, ALL city employees should live within city limits! No exceptions. If the Mayor can live within city limits, no one should be exempt!

The sad thing about his entire topic is all of the "other" people who've died from ****** over doses. No one cared until the child of a police chief died. Only now is the ****** problem "out of control." That is the "toughest" thing to swallow.

Our mayor should only be thinking of bringing up Williamsports property values,As a rise in values will raise assessments will raise tax revenue, will buy more police, this ordiance tenant registration and even talk of it lowers the citizens tenants to second class citizens, it is class warfare and brings down property values.Even talking about it hurts williamsport. officer Tim miller is bringing our values down. What does he care being from Picture rocks ??

I am wondering if the rule change to allow police to live 30 miles outside of the city years ago coincides with the rise in crime?? Some officers who have no stake ,monetary or children here, may not show as much care for our city as those of us who have a monetary stake in bringing up property values??
