The problems are very apparent in our city at this time.

We have little to nothing to offer our young people to stay in this community. To change this issue would be to entice new industry here, to offer a tax deferment would make it easier for new businesses to set up shop.

That said it would not cover the cost of living increases, but would provide a strong foundation to stay.
