There are people starving in Freedom, Bridgewater, Aliquippa and South Heights, all blighted areas and your answer is to make them turn in building permits and then pay $70,000 for a band. Can this get any more wackier???

Pay a band $70,000 ??????? Fucking unbelievable!!!
There is no amount of money that will make people come to Beaver County!
If anyone comes to Beaver County it is because of a funeral or a wedding. They only come because the have to. Smarten up and get rid of that Tourism Dept.

If the Tourism Department wants visitors to Beaver County, i have a suggestion
Have the County start Arresting the corrupt Politicians an personnel in the Court House , there will be people from all walks of life an no doubt place most folks have never heard of visiting Beaver County to watch the trails, spending their money , staying in the local hotels , eating at local restaurants, the possibilities are endless, why hell’s fire ever the Police can get in on the flow of money by writing bogus tickets.

Now for the Brady’s Run shooting Range, absolutely the Police Department should be charged, they do most of the shooting there, maintenance cost money, why should the private members be the only one’s to pay, many years ago when i was a member there, i was asked to leave because the police were coming in to shoot for training, when i pay for something i expect to receive what i payed for , I haven’t been back since, thankfully i live in the country an have a nice shooting range behind my house .

That is exactly why I left that range. Every fucking time I wanted to use the indoor range, I was told NOPE!, the police are coming to use it and you cannot! Then every time I used the outdoor range, I had to pay a range fee! WTF does your dues pay for? Someone to pad their pockets?! Fuck that place and fuck Beaver County as a whole! And while you’re at “Tourism Dept.”, clean up Brady’s Run park! You could start with throwing the white trash out of there and then start cleaning the shithole bathrooms EVERYDAY! That place is a fucking DUMP! Hey “Tiny Tony”, start doing your fucking job and start patrolling that dump like your dept. is supposed to! $70,000.00? Fucking democrats! Like a box of rocks. Only dumber! And that goes for you too “Danny Boy”. There is not one damn thing in this whole county to bring “Tourists” into it and spend money. You fucking people are delusional.

So- where is this building boom taking place in Aliquippa and South Heights that can be taxed in order to pay for that $70,000 band and super- deluxe tourism ads? Or do you mean permits for demolishing the many homes that are falling down?
Some of that $70,000 would be a huge benefit to the food banks, and children’s meal programs… Homeless shelters… Drug rehab. Etc…
