No, there wasn't one this time, because the city has found a reliable party who does a great job at a fair price. Contrary to what the wannabe mayor is putting out there, it is not mandatory to open the job to bidding every time the contract is up, nor is it "unfair." As elementary as it may sound, not every nimrod with a mower is qualified or reliable enough to award the job to, no matter how low they claim they bid.

I personally have through FIVE different lawn mowers in the last several years, looking for one that is reliable and competent. It's not as easy as it sounds. If you get a good one, you better hang on to them!

The mowers the city has now (Muir) are only reliable as you can state they pick up the check for payment. The truth is they have been caught claiming payment and not doing all the mowing or triming as claimed. They have routinly damaged head stones at the cemetary and then claimed city workers did the damage digging graves. This has actually been proven faulse as the marks line up with the mower heights and wheels but the Mayor and bob (his father-in-law) will not listen to the complaints. Since he makes the rules, that is how it will be. If you doubt this ask Mr Zettler, as he's not happy how this is done either.

What is this gibberish even supposed to mean??
You''re obviously a disappointed person who hoped to get the contract, and now you're taking potshots at the people who did. Pure jealousy. From the looks of your post, it is doubtful that you could put a coherent bid together! Maybe you're one of the people I had to replace from doing my lawn.

Look I love Jim and Lisa, but this is just another example of what is wrong with sesser. If it's good and fair open it up.

Why does Sesser pay anyone to mow? Shouldn't that be the job of the city workers?

Why should they open it up again when they have reliable people doing the job for a fair price?

No bull.. So are you that stupid that you can't understand a simple sentence? Lets go over the sentence bit by bit for your simple mind.
The mowers (meaning the people that do the mowing) the city has now (that would mean the City of Sesser)(Muir) < this is the name of the person, are only reliable as you can state,(when someone makes a statement and you reiterate < do I have to explaine this word to you too? you say they stated somthing or to state (say). Now making the statement of being reliable, they are always reliable on picking up the check for alot of the mowing they do not do.. Now do you understand you simplminded fool? What a moron, must be a Ned ( I don't think but I will vote as he tells me) supporter.

LOL, Dude. It was gibberish. If you're going to call someone simpleminded, at least learn how to spell it. While you're at it, add these words to your spelling list : "something," "explain," and "routinely." I have a fourth grader available if you need tutoring.

Don't despair. Only a couple of more months until mowing season, so you can rake in more big bucks. But don't come back to my yard. I require a diploma, not a GED.

Nonsense. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
