ok...big story in todays Andy Taylor rag..........water bills getting ready to take a hike..........they claim they cany make ends meet anymore......arent looking to hire a city administrator, taking money from other depts to keep the plant running.......ok DALE FRIGGIN MCBRIDE...wake up!!!!!!!! here are some simple cost cutting measures that should help..........take your pencil out from behind your ear and find a piece of paper...
1. cut the police force down to a total of 4.....Caney has a population of 2,000 what the hell do we need with 6 fulltime officers?
2. Put the dog catcher on a pay by pick up system...costs will go down, and a damn sure promise you the animal population will go down as well if he has to hustle for his money.

3. Cut the city crew down by 3..........this will actually leave 1 person working, and eliminate the other 2 standing and watching....

4. Purchase water from another town and sell to residents........you will still make some money, and we will save money because our water bills are the highest aroundandthe shit aint fit to drink.....

lose 2 cops-----$ 40,000.00
dogcatcher------$6,000.00
city crew-------$40,000.00
here is $86,000.00

what ya think Dale is it time to give up yet? you will be out election time anyway...

I would imagine they have laws in place to prevent you from having your own well..........i would say the best thing that could happen is every household in Caney boycott and not pay their water bill a couple of times..........what they gonna do shut us all off???? that might send a message out there.....the building??? who knows....we will never know the true cost........they got their wish..a new building, 4 wheel drive trucks,more cops.......new water plant...u name it..they want it they got it...

You do know if anyone Boycotts the city will be after your ass right? Fines and being pulled over for no reason. Hell they might even make shit up to pin on you. But it does need to change. I am all for it, but your going to need a lot of people to get it done. Has anyone called the goverment about this problem? This is tetering on the edge of an emergency. Oh and anyone else look at the numbers on the water bill? For what they say it tested, all of the numbers are the same in both columns on the ranges vs what they tested.

You're crazy. The big thing in Andy Taylor's rag this week is the quarter-page ad toward the back. If you'll buy a subscription, Andy will give you a Caney T-shirt. Now THAT'S a deal to make you forget all your troubles!

The city has been mismanaged for too long for there to be any real hope. The recent search for a new grocery store started years too late due to nobody in Caney wishing for anything new to come to town. As a result, the lack of new goods and services coming to town also resulted in new people coming to town. Those that wanted their dear old town to remain the same are now dying off and will not be replaced.
At this point, controlling the budget and smart spending is only going to prolong the suffering. Let the town die now.

That should have read resulting in NO new people coming to town.

Hmmmm, Lets see, the same City Council people keep getting voted in and the same Mayor. You keep voting them in and expect different results? We need to start with getting rid of the "good ole boy system". Dale McBride will bankrupt this city if he is aloud to continue to run it, without any accountability!! I agree with Why The Hell Not, the city is VERY overstaffed for a community our size.

If the town is going broke, why does Ronnie drive his police car for personal use all the time? Why does Tony drive the dog catcher truck for personal use? Why does Steve, who is retired drive the DARE care for personal use? Maybe to the golf course? Who is paying for their gas, insurance, etc? We, the tax people are paying for it. It doesn't matter if you complain to the mayor because he is just as bad as the rest of them. Caney voters need to clean house now, before Rickville, I mean Caney is totally broke.

There is one councilman who has complained about all of these things and many more problems and all he got was ignored and yelled at by other councilman and the mayor.People in Caney should attend the meetings, see what is going on. Stand up in Public Forum and state your mind. Ask why these things are going on.Nothing will change until the people in Caney change it.We do have a few decent police officers, but remember they are constrained by the rules of their boss. Some officers don't ever do any work, they just draw a paycheck.

What about the city workers driving the city trucks for personal use. I seen the city truck parked at the house on 4th street in the evenings. What a bunch of crap! Somebody needs to do something, but who?

Exactly how do we handle this???? if we complain at a council meeting we will be singled out by the police department i promise you that.......if we band together and complain the same will happen..........you know its too bad that we couldnt get every single water customer to NOT PAY THEIR WATER BILL FOR A MONTH...would that send a message?????? probably..........is it too late to ask for a recall of McBride???

When you guys keep voting over and over again for Joe, April and others connected to them by the arse the same crap will happen. Rick has run this town for many years. I would love to see this place in 10 years after all those who "own" Caney are dead or retired. That guy Darrell Roe was a jerk but he and that council tried to do something anyway and all it did was motiviate the inbreds to come together and vote to keep their power club in place.

Maybe you should run for office and correct all the wrongs others have done? Start with the current group of head in the sand embiciles.
