Well, I think all 3 comments have merit. Yes the council should be reduced to 3 not 5. With only 4500 residents you only need 3 at large council members who can oversee things, not 9 IDiOTS currently on board.
Heights has it right also. This guy was another lump taking up air and didn't do anything when he rarely showed up for work.$7250 was actually a joke of a settlement but he won essentially.
Just goes to show you what incompetent MORONS that are running this town. They did the same with putting another LUMP in charge and paying this guy with a 100K compensation and benefits package to do absolutely nothing.
All he does is surf the net, eat and worry about gambling and golfing. He couldn't pass a physical or an agility test. I'm waiting for something big to happen and odds are it will while this LUMP is in charge and then the shit will hit the fan when everything is investigated and the news media shows how incompetent the council is all the way down to the Manager and police chief and how their hiring practices are done. It'll show he has absolutely no education, training or intelligence and no managerial knowledge or experience.
He doesn't believe in training or making his officer work. They sit in the station a good majority of their shifts watching TV and eating.
They have a good teacher for that .
What probably would be best is abolish the town and merge it completely. Although that is highly unlikely but an investigation would get things started with all these idiots and maybe just maybe the DA would take a good hard look at how purchasing is done also.
