Bigger Problem: Deer or Deserted Stores...Cast Your Vote in our Poll
Cast your vote now (or add your own concern) for what problems you want to see addressed in 2012
With a brand new year comes brand new talk about what’s the most important issue facing Avon Lake. In 2011, the city saw its financial position solidify when a new line was announced for Ford Motor Co. and income tax receipts increased significantly over 2010. On the downside, several smaller businesses shut their doors in 2011, including Donatos, Clifton Web, the Floor Gallery, Stop 45, (after moving across the street and expanding) and closing soon—Blockbuster.
Still, economic development remains a hot topic is Avon Lake, but not the only important issue. Plenty of people have expressed concern with the amount of deer and accidents involved with their overpopulation.
Street and property flooding took center stage in 2011, no doubt aggravated by a record rainfall. Still, residents want to know what's being done to avoid a flood of water in 2012.
