Then to whom's expense should their raise come from? Every company in the world gives raises to their employees. They only have so many ways to produce that raise and the most one used is raising the cost of the product they produce. How do you think the company YOU work for comes up with the money to give you a raise?

How much are they making an hour? Do you even know? Or are you just concerned with not letting them advance in their life? Sounds rather selfish to me.

They need to suck it up like the rest of the world (except obummer, he can continue to live like super royalty) when the rest of us a day by day and OUR white house his closed to the public. Most the folks who work for the city and water works probably got their jobs because they knew someone or were related to them or both. They should be happy they have a job and insurance and suck it up.

in regards to your comment not all city employees got a 3% raise there was a 1-2-3 for some not 3%
across the board and the reason police,fire,public works and the recreation center along with the city hall the city of lewisburg has not raised rates in 21 years the water department has broke records in rate increases well thanks for stating your opinion

Thanks for the information. We re washing quilts and blankets now, before it turns cold. It may be a good idea to be a step ahead of any increase in our water bill.

Allen is voting for the raise. His question to me was "do I not think that they need a raise of 2%". I called and spoke to him. He doesn't have any answers to anything. I'm sorry I wasted a vote on him. I will be at the meeting. Where is it at.

Good chance he has an answer but it isn't what you wanted to hear so most likely he did a well rehearsed fancy tap dance right by you.

Your right. It wasn't what I wanted to hear but I ask a few questions as to why the rate increase. I have no problem with a increase if it is cost justified. He couldnt give me a cost justification except that 2% was for the city employees to get a raise. I then ask him, why should We have to pay out of my pocket for their raises. He didn't like that statement. Then I ask how many people do you know that has gotten raises in the past 5 yrs and have they considered cutting expenses if they would like to have a raise. By this time he was very aggravated and all he could say is that he was retired. We have considered moving from Lewisburg. Where does it stop. Marshall county is highest unemployment rate in the state. Best section 8 housing in the state, highest wheel tax and the highest free and reduced lunch in the state. Marshal county is in the top 1 or 2 in the state in every category. Where does the spending stop..

Oh so in other words, you're just about sour grapes and not cheering on anyone else to move ahead if you can't. What an a/sswipe you are. Maybe if you got off you lazy a/$$ and did something, you could get a raise too.
rate increase for whom

Lewisburg, TN

You forgot to tell them that the Water Dept. got a 19% water and 27% sewer rate increase less than three years ago. They also owe $19.4 million dollars. The city owes nothing and has not had to increase taxes in over two decades. T.C. is a yes man for the water board that he serves on in my opinion.
good for you

everyone this is not about turning on each other
its about accountability,the water board as of this date can not define its acts or its reasons
why they cant balance there budget everyone else does they are the only city utilitie that loses money ,why is that they havnt offered k.carr or p.biggers resignation or the resignation of its board members.any other company they it would have been filing bankruptcy but do to them having an endless pit for revenue because they know at the end of the day the city of lewisburg will have to pick up there tab thank you

We too are good people and we are considering taking our money and moving elsewhere. I dont care what we get for our home and to whom we sell to. Most the local elected officials are democrats so you know where this place is heading. Hang on, we may have the best section 8 in the entire country. Now that is something to be proud of, now isn't it?

I wish we could get Obama care but we work and make to much money so we have to work a little harder to pay for your healthcare.
