don't forget to blame city hall and vote them all out except for Alex Larue. They could put a stop to Terry Cruse and Madonna's corruption of city government if they wanted to. However their hands are dirty as well.

Remember this when election time comes around. I think of a few others in our county government that need to go to.

Larue County and Hodgenville government has gotten highly corrupted over the last several years.

Tough talk to be on the internet, sounds like a threat actually. I'm willing to bet Terry would be able to do something about this....Just make sure you are not letting that bulldog mouth over ride that puppy dog a** if you know what I mean. As far as the deal in the paper goes, its complete garbage. Anyone notice its only one person's side of the story? Well I will give you the truth considering I was there. The woman was being completely out of order. She was asked repeatedly to leave, which in her own words said, I'm not leaveing you will have to make me. Next the "two" police officers that escorted her out...Try Steve only, Marcus was at city hall in civilian close and had absolutely nothing to do with the situation. Both Terry and Madonna were very civil during the whole ordeal considering her actions. The paper was wrong for publishing her lies. Terry and Madonna have their faults, but they do their job whether YOU like it or not. If no one complains on you then you5 arn't doing your job plain and simple.
sounds like ur sucking em both off since ur takin up for the bastards

Well concerned, I'd have to label you the dumbass. There is nothing corrupt about rounding water bills. If members of the city council don't like it, then they (Alex) should amend the city ordinance that does it.

There's also nothing corrupt about requiring a landlord to stand good for the water bill for property he owns. Again, if Alex, excuse me, the city council, doesn't like that part of the city ordinance that was passed many years before Cruse became Mayor, they should change it.

Lastly dumbass, excuse me, concerned citizen, having records seized may turn out to be people believing too much of the BS they read on Topix. Facts will come out and the Cruse haters may be disappointed with the results.

it is illegal to require the person to pay another persons utilities
they entered in a contract with the city not the landlord this is not a city ordinance this is a city hall malfeasance issue only way a person can be held for anothers debts is to cosign this did not happen i am sure before long the city will understand corruption.
rounding off water bills to the nearest 100 th gallon does not create unused overages instead of nearest 1000th gallon but your corrupt ass already knows this

I've read many of the posts on here and find many amusing. As for the city and it being illegal to require the property to stand good for the utility, I've seen it done both ways.

While in the military I lived in 6 different states and each time I would try to pick up a few run down residences, fix them up and rent them out. When transferred I'd sell them and do it again in the new location. I counted up (in my head) and have owned property is 14 different cities. Each did it differently in terms of how the water service was done.

Most required the tenant to place a security deposit (in some cases a rather large one) and it stood good for any overdue bill. In at least 3 of the cities, I, as the owner, had to stand for the bill if the security deposit didn't cover the cost. They could place a lien on the property if I failed to clear the bill. When I would sign up for water service there was a clause in the water contract with the city that said I, as the owner of the property, would ultimately be responsible for and outstanding liability for water used at the site.

One of the cities would notify not only the renter that the water bill was past due but the me as the owner as well. That worked quite well as I could stay on the renter to make sure the bill was paid. If not, I could issue an eviction notice and use his security deposit to catch up on the water bill.

Each city is different and while I don't think its illegal to require the property to stand for the utility, as an owner I certainly liked it the other way.

unfortunately nothing above has ever happened there is no clause, no contract , and no notice. What happens when a vengeful tenant leaves the water on knowing the city will come after the landlord and runs up a 3000- 4000 dollar water bill because he is being evicted.If you have ever filled a swimming pool with a water hose its easy to run 300 dollars out in 2 days imagine someone leaving a faucet on for 20 days. if landlords signed such a contract or this ordinance would be published in paper it would be different but that will never happen. so good try of deflecting this is a practice that has been used for garbage pickup only because it does not matter the volume of garbage the bill is the same unlike water or electric or gas. this is malfeasance and corruption in its most despicable form

Concerned, not sure what you mean "good try of deflecting". I'm not trying to deflect anything and don't really care about the argument and disagreements you and others have with the Mayor of Hodgenville. I live in the county, not the city, so this isn't an issue for me. My intent was to state that cities from place to place are different. Whether you agree with how they do things is your right, no "deflection" menat or intended.

Cruse is crooked and always has been. He left the Larue Co Sheriff's department in disgrace, went to Lebanon Junction police department, where he was fired for getting two DUI's. He needs to go.
