Just wondering what the city back hoe was doing in Lloyd Garret's parking lot spreading gravel on his private property about a week ago. Will the city come do the same for me? Also, with diesel at $4 a gallon, isn't this mismanagement of funds? It is your tax dollars at work folks, what do you think? Maybe Mr. McDaniel doing favors for Mr. Garret is what allowed Curtis to have his big campaign sign on Garret's corner, in front of his business?

Can't believe you got no reply! Things never change. Can't believe we elected another "good ole boy".

I heard about this, and it was my understanding Mr. Garret paid for the work to be done, which fixed a public road from flooding. I don't know if this is legal or not, but the road in Idabel are all in bad shaped with not enough money to fix the pot holes through out the town.

A publicly owned (city of Idabel) is not to be rented out for an individual nor used on a priately owned piece of property as the machinery is supposed to be used on public projects only. A QUESTION, was that work done on the city right of way or on private property? Appears to be misuse of city of Idabel equipment which was misapproiated. The person that ordered this work done shold be investigated and then fired. How many other pieces of private property have the same problem but can not get the work done at the expense of the city? Besides, the city is not a rental store. Was the job done on the cheaper than a contractor so as to save the owner some money as a favor.
