What other ideas?

The council should come up with other ideas to make the city financially solvent? Easier said than done. Options are limited. You can’t snap your fingers and have new businesses and residents appear to provide a sustainable tax base. One option other than Home Rule has been explored, but it requires a significant raise in property taxes. Go to the city website (www.shamokincity.org). Read the final Three Year Exit Plan (Jan. 29, 2020) and the GoShamokin Revitalization Plan. Search the exit plan for “Home Rule” and see what it says.
