State budget cuts hit small-town Ohio

Residents here were all for balancing Ohio's budget. They didn't expect that to mean their town would cease to exist.

This small village of low-slung houses and squeaky swing sets in western Ohio's farm country has already laid off its part-time police officer and decided not to replace its maintenance worker, who recently retired. To save cash, Mayor William Rolston will propose Monday that the town turn off the street lights, and that Uniopolis disincorporate after more than a century in existence.

"We've decided that with the budget cuts, we just can't do it anymore," said Rolston, the mayor of 19 years, speaking from the town's one-room municipal building, its wallpaper covered with heart-shaped American flags. "About the only thing that can save it now is an act of God."


Damn. That's quite a recovery you got there.

That's the plan of the world powers and it appears to be working. Break the states to bring down the country while everyone sits and watches in a hypnotic disbelief.

I live in Lima Ohio about 10 minutes from this "town"....could probably walk there. We're a city a population of about 40,000.

I don't see why they just don't get help from us.

As an Ohioan, this is really sad. I'm sure this is happening all over the country too.

Feeding one cop and his pension is expensive even if he's part time. Just wait until he twists his knee in a training exercise and is disabled for life.
