I want all city contracts

This is unbelieveable a company that is forced upon the residents as the Landscaping Company in our city, voted by our Council Members unanimously to take over Code Enforcement, a Company who has been handed the Rat Abatement Program, never even contributed one penny for any advertising in the city calendar. Does anyone besides myself smell a rat. Speaking of rats our rat abatement program had $ 100,000.00 set aside for this program and we have been paying monthly to Landscape Services for their so-called services that hasn't even scratched the surface of eraticating the rats we have more now than we had before they started doing their game thing. Thats all this amounts too is spend the money thats in the account then when its all gone they will approach council and let them know that the funds are exhausted and we need to replenish the account with another $ 100,000.00, lets wake up residents just because we had an abundance of money in our General Account after our audit, that don't mean that we have to spend it all with one company because the principals rub elbows with our elected and appointed officials and at this point I'm not at liberty to disclose the rest of my story. Another issue I haven't heard anymore about how their search for the new City Manager is going, because I've been told they are not really searching...

And if Landscape Services had bought an ad you'd just be complaining it was done as a "kickback."

Why would LSI spend a single dime on advertising? If they want more business they just phone it in to CM and its a done deal. Come on Mikey,you are just another puppet owned and operated by the midget.

The bigger question is, are there advertisements for OTHER landscape companies in the calendar? If not, then there's something even stinkier.

The landscaper bids on snow removal @ about $15. to 25.00 per home per 6in. of snow. The city adds on fee's and fines @$100.00 plus.

I think the fees for the landscaper are fare the city is the one scamming the people!

If City Hall will take advantage of nature’s gift and adopt GREEN Cats as a part of their new, Green approach to pest control, the feral cat and TNR colonies will be sanctioned as the City’s eco-friendly rodent control measure.
The era of “Save Our Planet” and Going Green has given us a unique opportunity to focus on such successful programs as Working Cats and the enormously positive public relations it generates for feral cats.
(Working Cats is VFTA’s successful program that saves feral cats by employing them in local businesses to get rid of rats and mice. Currently the Los Angeles Flower Market, the Orchid Market, Crossroad School, the Self Realization Ashram, and four divisions of the LAPD all have working feral cats. Disneyland also proudly lays claim to employing 200 feral cats.)
Going Green is politically popular, and this has encouraged City Hall to pursue new ideas and introduce Green policies in many more areas.. GREEN Cats is a noble concept, and a way to get our feral paw in the door!
If animal rescue communities and animal-loving citizens team up and work together, we can galvanize the general public and the media, thus bringing City Hall’s politically fashionable Go Green mind-set insync with GREEN Cats. This could potentially become the sustainable solution regarding our city ferals, and be a winning model for other cities!
The Tail-Wrap Feline Mind Meld
Once City Hall and other Landmark Businesses recognize the benefit and positive impact the feral cat provides for the health of the city, they undoubtedly will embrace and adopt GREEN Cats as their very own way of going Green.
We may not worship the cat in temples like the ancient Egyptians once did, but we should always respect and acknowledge the important role the feral cat plays as chief rat catcher of the World!
In ancient times, the cat was highly valued for the activity of defending mankind against rodent over-population and rodent-borne diseases like the plague.
In Classical Cats: The Rise and Fall of the Sacred Cat, Donald W. Engels argues that if the millions of cats had not been slaughtered alongside the heretics they were associated with during the inquisition, these same cats may well have stopped the spread of the plague.
There are many positive examples of cities exhibiting high regard for their feral cat colonies. Like "The Parliamentary Cats" from Ottawa, Canada (pictures below).
Local artists made shelters for the cats as miniature replicas of the Parliament buildings next to them --“The Parliamentary Cats” colony is a favorite tourist stop.
Rome, Italy has over 2000 well-managed TNR feral colonies.
Rome's city council has recently granted their endorsement of the feral cat's existence in the city by officially citing the cats as a part of their ancient heritage.
"There is a deep-rooted affection for these cats that have an ancient bond with the city."
In 2001, the city council chose to protect the cats by naming them a part of the city's bio-heritage and celebrated them as their preventative rodent patrol.
The Romans treasure the feral cats as their “supremo ratto sterminatore!”
GREEN Cats' aim is to rally the Public to endorse natural rodent control, necessitating City Hall to embrace TNR colonies in order to facilitate the feral cat as the community’s green exterminator.
And (at last!) venerate our feral cat residents!
Appreciated by the Public!
Endorsed by the City!
Maintained as TNR colonies!
Employed by City Hall and
the business community!
Valued for services rendered!

What happened to the (OWLS) that SCS was going to have protecting our city from rodents. The last I heard of that was when she got fired and was seen walking home with a few of her rats, counting her money the city gave her along with her paid up medical insurance for life. The only one that was really upset was some Landscaping Company that was going before the Planning Commission to get their prints approved for building Owl Condo's to house the birds, that kind of fell thru and the project, to my knowledge was cancelled. My,my we have very short memories.

You might add the hockey sticks were the end result of the tax money that your 95 year old neighbor paid to the city for taxes. LOL
