Put some stools on the other side of that bar, ESPN on those big screen TVs, and a few slot machines in the little room next door, and you could pay for that new council room in a week. Can you make a screwdriver, Gloria?

But you spend our money on The Capitol, on Ball Fields , on New Chamber , and in your own words OURSELVES ( coming from you that mean's YOURSELF )You should be ashamed OF YOURSELF you take away peoples homes to build a ballpark that will bring in absolutely no income , you spent soooo much on the capital, if you did your job you could see that that money will never ever be recouped !!!!!!!!! You spend alot on the big graphic's to cover up part of the buildings what has that done for us ?? You lost all that was to be here in Wheeling to the Highlands wow that was a good 1. YOU SIR ALONG WITH THE CITY MANAGER AND CITY SOLICITOR should all quit. Terrible leadership

Spending a $100.00 outside of the building and planting some flowers would have been a better investment than the $168,000.00 spent on this extravagant childishness.

Will you do the same for the rest of the city? What are you really doing for business in Wheeling...besides being a vulture...snagging every dime you can for every reason.

The city of Wheeling targets residents and high school students...parking meters along residential streets???? F-N buffoons.
