Look at these two stories on Van's site:

Why is LCUB hiring people if they are facing layoffs?
Are they going to layoff the non-relatives of board-members? Is that why they need to bust the union?

LCUB will be here but it will be a better LCUB. There is always a day of reckoning.

If LCUB is busted I guess thats why our utility bills have gone up. Got to make it somewhere.

Looks like lcub has been carrying the rest of the city government and this is a big no no.! What else would you expect if city council is also the board of directors for lcub. guess they just didnt know what the consequences would be in the end. We should be seeing lenoir city gov. as we have known it ending and a new way of doing business beginning soon. we can only hope!

I think you're right about the day of reckoning. The city officials have seen LCUB as their own cash-hen for a long time. Now it's coming back to bite them. The city's year long budget is tiny compared to LCUB. They sell utility service all over north Loudon County and in east Roane and west Knox counties. That is the money source that people who run for city offices want to get their hands into.

The problems at LCUB didn't just happen over night. It's been that way from the beginning. Everybody wants to work there because of the benefits & pay; most are angry because they don't have the inside help it takes to get hired. I am happy for anyone who has a job like that, but at the same time I'm angry because city council/board of directors has let the benefits get out of hand. Other people at other less paying jobs outside of a government job deserve good benefits, too. As a taxpayer/ratepayer it gripes me to have to pay for their extravagance. Previous administrations have continued and compounded the pay & benefits that the union now demands & we have to pay for-& that we can no longer afford. I (we) cannot afford the planned water rate increase that is required to pay the loan for water expansions in the past. However; what is the alternative? Aikens & other city officials went to the state Comptroller for answers/guidance & came back apparently empty handed. You just cannot fix in 1 day what has been growing for years. I personally don't see what efforts they have done to find answers as "union busting", but as trying to find common, less financially painful ground for all concerned. I just hope they find it quickly.

Why does the LCUB have their meeting at 4:30 that looks like if people that works it would be hard for them to attend the meetings,or is that the intent behind it. That time should benefit everybody,How does other people feel?

If LCUB would drug test everyone then they wouldn't have to worry about budget cuts. Also the way it works to sell to LCUB. You know greese my palm.
