Having a diploma doesn't have anything to do with vision, principles and leadership. Number 34 supposedly has a PhD and he is a joke.
It warms the cockles of my heart to hear a DOT employee sing the praises of road projects. spLOST, e-spLOST, t-spLOST; what a scam.
It is a shame that everyone seems to have forgotten that the ratepayers already paid for this and many more increases but the City Commission stole our money for other purposes.
J.D. why don't you ask some Commissioners why the MEAG refund isn't used to cover this increase?
No mention of the MEAG refund that could be used to offset these increases. The ratepayers should have nearly $100 million to cover these increases but the City Commission voted to take the money from the ratepayers and use it to cover their own fiscal irresponsibility.
Coleman certainly wouldn't nominate anyone he thought might be aggressive. I think we could use a little "general public" participation.
You better do the re-read.
And we're still waiting on the DA to reveal the results of his investigation into Cutliff Grove. How long can it take?
DCED has got to go. Two projects lose nearly $900K taxpayer dollars and there is NO consequence for any of the parties involved except the taxpayers. Heads should roll but instead the folks at DCED are probably on overtime writing checks to cover their mistakes.
University Gardens $500K plus Cutliff Grove $374K plus God only knows what else and NO ONE is responsible? Someone's head should roll for this debacle. How about starting with Ms. Cutts and her whole department.
spLOST is a clever way to avoid going to the property owners and demanding more taxes. The "it's only a penny" tactic is easy to sell compared to a millage increase. Don't get duped. The answer is financial responsibility not more money. If these clowns had twice the budget it wouldn't be enough.
