Dear Fernley City Council Members:

Fernley City Council Meeting of 1/20/2010

Hi all, yes, I am not a resident of Fernley, but I still care. I truly do not desire to be a whiner, but enough is enough. In the past I have sent you numerous positive letters for the better of the community, but today, I am mortified to say the least.

Today I listened to Wednesday’s city council recording on FernleyNews.com and was shocked to hear the topic regarding the astronomical salary increases that some of your employees have recently received in light of the fact that it appears that you seem to be the only city in the nation that is NOT experiencing financial woes. If you intended to send out a powerful message to all your employees and to all the residents and business owners of Fernley that you are definitely open for business and spending money up the whazooo, well then, Bravo for a job well-done! What happened to the nestegg? Even the City of Fernley should have one.

If this is not an ethics violation, then surely it is a blatant intent to commit fraud and a violation of your policies you created last March. It is a grave disappointment to the residents of Fernley not to mention a mental disappointment plus the financial damage your city manager has caused the other employees. The way I see it – he was testing his authority and you let it go. Yes, I know you are reviewing it – but it is more than that.

Right now, I am convinced that your corporation concentrates more on salary increases rather than taking care of the residents who pay your salary, AND the business of budget monitoring in these very difficult times. Here it is Friday, and already the news is…..”Who do you have to sleep with to get a raise around here?” That is the big question that you have created within your own corporation, with your employees and with the general public.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
