Mr City Manager! This is not to insult you in anyway shape or form. But will you pls make sure that those guys you have working outside city hall that are checking our water and gas meter to really check them, not just walk the streets and not even stop to to check our meters. I for one have notice that it's been a while since anyone have stop to check our gas and water meter cause i open it cause i have notice my water and gas bills have increase so i check them out and it was impossible to read it, and beside it was cover with dirt and ants, so it was obvious this employees have not taken the time to really read this meters .

Taking a picture of your meter is a great idea, but you can also monitor it yourself buy writing down the numbers that appear on your meter, date it and do it again on the same date the following month. Present this to the water department supervisor if you see any discrepancies. If your meter is moving and no one is using the water inside your house, you might have a leak. I had that experience, it was a old pipe that we needed to be replaced, not fun.

Why are you posting this on topix? If you really have a problem with the city employee, take it to city hall and complain to their supervisor, if he does not do anything about it, go above him, everyone has someone to answer to. Continue up the ladder until the problem is solve. If all fail and your at the top, there is always the Newspaper. Topix has become a gossip forum for people who just degrade others,complain about the community or finger point with no proof on their accusations.
I do not think Mr. Mario Martinez is sitting at home in front of a computer reading topix.

Ur probably right, Mr Martinez has better things to do. But the last time someone went to City Hall to complain all they did was made fun after the person left. so maybe this is y they came to topix.

And dont even get started on the good for nothing animal control department. Stray dogs all over my neighborhood. You call to report the nuisances and no one is ever in that office. What's it gonna take? For someone to get bit? There's quite a few children riding bikes and playing basketball in out neighborhood that should be allowed to play without the danger of getting attacked by unsupervised dogs.

It just make someone wonder whats really going on inside city hall. Carlos can be sitting in there all day with nothing to do while dead dogs and cats are all over the place. so why is he not doing his job and no one is telling him to do it? Unless he knows something we don't.

Someone metioned something about going to the top and questioning why nothing is being done. Who would we be able to go to? Everyone here cuddles under the same blanket. Unless we got to some outside source, our complaints and questions would be futile.

We all hear that the Mayor and city manager will soon be stepping down..... well that is never going to happen with all the money that is coming in to city hall. but we can all dream to have them replace soon and just maybe things will be different for us the citizens.

Get your incumbent city council voted out, fire the city manager and department heads, hire people to take over that have a proven track record who are educated. It's starts with city council first though. Good luck people.
