With a never ending feud Between East Cleveland a City Council and its mayor Gary Norton the Story of East Cleveland heralds a fiscal sinkhole the size of the boundaries beyond University Circle inc. Extending to Lakeview cemetery and its threatening to Swallow the once thriving suburb whole. According to the beleaguered East Cleveland mayor Norton the Devil is in the details. Norton agreed to sit Down with the Call amp Post to talk specifically about the City a current financial dilemma accusations of mismanagement and facing a decision to perhaps file bankruptcy or merge with the City of Cleveland. Norton says that throughout a 10-year period East Cleveland has lost one third of its population with now roughly 17,000 residents. Pointing to census data of that 17,000 people Only 5,000 have jobs. A a you be got 5,000 people who work essentially paying into the City a Revenue sources that make up part of the City a Revenue through income tax to support 17,000,�?� said Norton. A but if you look at it historically East Cleveland speak population in the �?~70s and �?~80s was 40,000. So we now have 5,000 people today paying to operate a place where 40,000 used to live that math will never More than any one individual the East Cleveland mayor has been the focus of blame As to much of his City a prob lems and in particular Money woes. Throw in those dam red Light cameras tire Axle busting potholes and All kinds of accusations of theft in office and Norton is the easy Choice to Point fingers toward. To that he retorted a if you look at this its a problem that goes beyond individuals. No individual no group can claim responsibility for the drastic reduction of the past several years of East Cleveland a Revenue. No individual group can claim responsibility for the decrease in East Cleveland a population the loss of jobs the vacant and abandoned housing As a result of the foreclosure crisis. No individual no group is responsible. So when we go Back to the Basic formula for funding a City in the state of Ohio it works in 99.9 percent of the cases. But what we have is essentially a structural deficiency. That formula no longer works because of the composition of our City and we have to Deal with that. A a it a not dealt with by blaming a person or a group for mismanaging a certain portion of the budget or mismanaging All of the budget. Its not about a particular Purchase its not about a set of purchases. Its about the structural foundations that create the economic and financial climate of the Norton insists that whether the problems Are the Well known delinquencies like owing the company that collects its trash not paving streets or not having reliable emergency service vehicles that work it All comes Down to the gon existent finances needed to operate a City. A we can blame a mayor or a City Council member but All of those issues Are merely symptoms of the big Root problem which is the financing to operate a City just Isnit there anymore a the East Cleveland mayor said. A and if we re going to continue to Deal with symptoms and if we treat each thing individually or Lump the symptoms together it never allows us to get to the Root cause. In order to address a structural deficiency you need a structural in today a social economic climate its a Good bet that such a a structural solutions would include one of the following bankruptcy merger or an immense bailout of an unknown and thus far elusive source. On All available options to save the City from its dire financial woes Norton conceded a a we re at the Point where we have to explore our options and explore them Means have some information gathered have an intelligent and Well structured conversation As a Community. Then make a decision As a Community which set of options we choose. We could continue to operate the Way that we be operated and make some cuts but they would be deep and substantial cuts More substantial than anything that we be Cut so far and we have made substantial painful cuts to services already. A at some Point As a mayor i have an obligation to provide the Best service level possible Given the available resources and to recommend those things that would improve service Overall or keep it stable for the Long. So in the Short term we Are in a situation where we manage As Best As possible with the available resources which Are slim and shrinking. For instance some years ago East Cleveland a budget was 16 in some cases 20 million dollars annually and there was about that level of Revenue to support that budget.
