people should care, because what it is, its legalized greasing the palms for a reward for something that was beneficial. how else would a $1000 contribution to a candiate with no opponent be explained other then a pay off for job well done. or a $1000 to monica who has not a snow ball chance [...]
things on the consent agenda are things that get approved with no discussion. so evidently they must of discussed it in private away from the meeting in front of the tax paying public, other wise how do they know that it will be okayed and approved with no discussion at the council meeting. hmmmmmmmmmm so [...]
the subject matter is raises, not the base amount of what people earn, of course the professionals will have a far greater base pay then the workers that do the work. but once they get the base pay settled, the % of the raises should not be that big of difference. And to pay the [...]
I think all the city employees should be given the same % raise. the union workers who fix the streets and carries my garbage deserve the same kind of wage increases, as their work is just as good and important as the city manager.
Roberta, from reading all the post, you are bascially the only cheerleader on here in favor of the tax. there a couple of subsitutes, but your the only one on, that greatly loves the tax, that deserves a letter for your jacket on the issue.
Oh, is that maybe like getting money from the federal government for a dam power plant not working and never was intended to work again and using the money to build a parking ramp. They twist money around to suit their wishes all the time. you just watch how fast the 1st ave intersection with [...]
The best way to pay for street repairs is to use the big profit from the city owned hotel. It is too bad if the sales tax passes, the tax money will be budgeted for street repair so the money that has been used for streets will be transfered for the city councils follies in [...]
well when you add target, kohl and kmart into the equation the income level does go up. but as i say, either you havent been in a walmart on the day or day after the money arrives each month or you dont see the forest because of the trees. I do know some of the [...]
You are correct and quieting the tracks on first ave intersection with the tracks is street repair but yet really isnt repairing any street or pot hole. extending a road not built is not repairing a street either. it is a new road no matter how you look at it, because it was never there [...]
Roberta, you ful of it, because you havent been in wally world after the state and feds checks have arrived and if you have been you havent been in any part of the store away from the food area, because if you had you would know wally world puts what you say in the dont [...]
The tea cups just did that and then complained that the president wouldn’t compromise or negotiate with them on the issue. When they take a pledge and stand firm on it. There is no way anyone even God his self could do any negotiating with them. So pledges do hog tie their hands.
gary, for months the tea cups kept saying how they wanted to shut the government down and they did. then afterwards they see it was not liked by the people so they say it wasnt their fault, when they had changed the house rules to make it so it not only shut down but couldnt [...]
Bill that is baloney, branstad being in the car makes him in control of the car, the same as if a ship at sea hits another ship, whether the captain is steering the ship or not, he is in charge and responsible.
Gary, on the national level, money going to food stamps, unemployment and elderly is not foolish spending the tax dollars. but giving subsidies to the oil companies is spending money foolishly. That is how the national level differs from the local levels. the local level they just spend money on the greater downtown area and [...]
randall, sorry i will have to decline your invite as we may agree on the city wasting money, but beyond the city level, there is no way you and me would be comfortable in the same building let alone in the same room.
Grifter Bob is like the house republicans, never know when they have lost too times. How many times has he ran for governor or other state office and has not been elected. no different then the republican house voting 42 times as of tomorrow to defeat obamacare, taken it to the supreme court and lost [...]
