People need to start going to city council meetings and asking questions! I think the state auditor should look into it's finances. The back dating of legal documents by the old city attorney and admin, the "UNAUDITED" section of the city financial report for 2009, the "personal expenses" of the city manager that were over budget by over $60,000 in 2009. The fiber optic loan they took out, the loans from Berwald roofing, the numerous properties Scott Duddeck owns. The city not bidding out contracts and giving them to family members.... what a waste of tax dollars.
I'd also like to hear what the city has to say at the next meeting about "looking into" officer Crittenden's wife's comments. Encourage everyone you know to attend the meetings and ask questions! Also send a complaint to the state auditor. On the state auditors website website under report a concern.
What about not taping meetings and censoring them?

Talked to a guy who moved out of NSP and asked him why they moved.
He said the cost of living in NSP is about $200 per month higher than Oakdale. He moved his family out and bought a new car with the savings.
Even if you loose money on the house the interest rates are so low that you can make a clean break and get into an area with less Section 8 housing, less houses being rented and foremost less crime associated with the government funded rifraf.

I am sorry you are so into shame. Christ L has given years of service and hours and hours of his time to help people. Yes Christine should have been included and please know that people are praying for her. I am sure that he is also, even if he did not remember right at that moment.
