Yep and the city council should be embarrassed right along with the overpaid City Managers.

These fools bypassed the voters - can't put this to a vote. Once they were told it could not pass the way it was they retooled the law and passed it anyway.

Now they are told to wait until July 1 - guess the next thing we will hear is a bunch of whining from them about how the city can't operate and we need to either cut services or increase fees.

Never anything about cutting the top 1% of all wage city employees wages to offset - funny are they not a bunch of progressives that support that kind of thinking (oh wait until it affects them).
