I have to laugh at the golf course comments. Local private interests tried to persuade the City Manager (Mr. Martin) into letting them buy it, then "rent" it to the City so that it could remain a Country Club with limited access to the public. The City Manager did not bend to their requests, and at the time angered some pretty powerful people by doing so. He took one for the general public on that one, so to paint him as doing their bidding is pretty laughable.

Guess the article in the paper this week concerning his contract being renewed for 3 years, with a pay increase, shows you don't have a clue as to what you're talking about.

I know there were issues that calls were not returned but if you called the city manager to let him know about the problem, it cleared up immediately and you got a call back. I did not see anything impressive happening during the time the Chief was here. He gave me the attitude though that he really didn't have to bother to answer my questions so..........Also, this is not the first time that the position has been vacant for awhile. I do believe that this is a position that requires someone carefully chosen and that what is needed in a Chief needs to be well defined and in line with the direction that the community needs to take to move forward.

Buying the golf course was nothing less than a bail out for Dean Mann. It has lost money for over twenty years under all managers. It will continue to bleed money that the city needs to pay policemen, firemen and other workers. They get the big zero in their paychecks and Dean Mann gets a bail out. The backroom sweetheart deals that have been rumored for years are not myth, they are real. The taxpayers bailed out a man who got into the golf course mess and saw it bleed money. He then turned to the city and his butt buddy Dave to save him. The taxpayers got the bill. This ain't myth or rumor. The facts speak for themselves. Thanks Dave, thanks Dean and thank you commissioners for the total sellout.
Boy you guys are stupid. Mann did not have anything to do with it, and he does not even play golf.
