    A statement from the 6th Floor of Government Center is advising city residents that Fall River is a top city to live and play. Advisers are hoping that we will ignore the crimes, drugs and trash inundaiting our lives. You may be able to pay a $3000 monthly rent payment and this might also make you a prime target for criminals. Get serious people our society is crumbling around us due to those in “charge” of our corrupted systems.
