No progress on any city code.

Majored in deal making and butt kissing.

Need we say more?

I wonder if he's started rewriting that loophole filled nightclub ordinance yet.

Seems simple to me. A distance requirement from residential and classifying any establishment where dancing occurs as a nightclub will surely prevent any new nightclubs. Add to that the requirement for sales from food to get a liquour license. Someone was intent that there be no nightclubs (I'm sure it wasn't the leadership). I think the problem is implementation and enforcement. That item should have never even gotten to the public hearing floor. The next time that trick is pulled somebody needs to file a public hearing appeal of his decision to process the item. It only requires that you are an aggrieved party which could mean any citizen, land owner, business owner, or councilperson. Nearly everyone has standing to file an appeal under the zoning code and to challenge the planner's decision - that is the biggest loophole in the ordinance. We should use it to our advantage.

Absolutely agree with you. There is no "due process" involved here, it's a no brainer. No, no, no! It breaks every zoning law on the books, that's all that is needed. I'm sick of spending our time and money to fight these idiots that think they can circumvent our laws. We can thank Halpern for that. I guess people see what they get away with on a regular basis and think they can get away with it too.

They will never be able to enforce any code cause they poop in their pants and settle every lawsuit. In fact, I hear Pamie Sue spends most of her time leaking information to the opposing legal council. Note the numerous blast emails that she has sent out to the general public that include lawyers suing the city. Now she has Joey to hand deliver those items. Can you see why there is no way they can deny anything? Check back on her own lawsuit against the city where she used a high profile gay law firm. Wonder who helped her find them? Could be a pal sitting nearby? She lost any way.

There is much more, but I think we've heard enough already. It just never ends at city hall, employees losing 3 million dollars, employees not doing their jobs for years and years costing 100's of thousands of dollars, department heads that can barely read and write and can't do a budget. The beat goes on! And they wonder why we are operating with a budget deficit.

They do poop their pants at the mention of a lawsuit, why do you think we are stuck with all these pawn, title pawn, check cashing stores, wholesale and massage parlors? They especially cringe when Halpern speaks, even though he has to crawl in a high chair to be eye level.

Obviously not a failed polygraph test that checks for very basic truthfullness questions.

Not even recommending a 200' cell tower by the city pool does the trick. Some people think he actually pointed out the "disco" loophole to the Palace people.

He needs to move on. Maybe if we're lucky he will take Stewie, Dave and Jimmy with him. They all love him so much I'm sure he will be missed.

Has that loophole in our ordinances been taken care of yet Joe and council? Or are you just sitting on your thumbs waiting for the next sleazeballs that try to come in and use it to their benefit?

I'm pretty sure they're all still sitting on their thumbs. They're probably waiting to hear from Jimmy and the gang before they can do anything. I'm sure Halpern is against changing it, they don't want to risk anything that might interfere with the wholesalers having enough entertainment. I think they may have gotten tired of having thier "feet" massaged by now and maybe some good ole drugs and violence is what they crave.

Might be time to ask on the record the results of the voice stress test (polygraph). You can always demand a resignation.

The guy never should have been hired to begin with. I wonder how much money we spent for his training and certification? Wasn't the fact that the former planner was not "certified" used as a tactic to try and fire him numerous times? Did the city offer to pay for his training? Probably not, he was not Halpern's bitch. The relationship between Cooley and Halpern is a conflict of interest. This should never have gotten this far.
