City Council Meeting

Bluefield, WV

#1 Feb 27, 2013
An employee that resigned a month ago wants his job back and a raise it could possibly mean a rate increase because they are having a difficult time paying bills already. If raises cant be given to everybody why just one person to whom in my opinion is paid far to much aleady the meeting is thusday night at 7pm i dont think we should have arate increase just to pay an already way over paid individual come out and voice your opinion

I think we should unhook from the water and sewer lines and flush everything in the creek like we used to...it was so much simpler then!

I agree with the previous comment, also some of the employs seem like they have nothing to do. If not why have them. It's waisted money that can used for employees that do there job or maintenance on the water and sewer plants.

They will probably get that employee who resigned a raise. And your rates will raise. Got to the meeting on Thursday night at 7 o clock. I will bet, but I don't know for sure that Don Morgan, Womack, Whisanant, and possibly Fleshman will not go for it. They are the only ones one the council that has any sense.Remember this the next election people.

Go to the council meetings people. You idiots get on topix and complain all the time about everything. Put your a## in the seats at the coucil chamber instead of on a seat in front of the computer complaining on topix. Tell the mayor and council you are mad as he## about water or sewer rates and an employee who resigns and wants to be rehired with a pay increase is totally stupid. You don't show up at council meetings?? You are not the solution but part of our problem. Call the mayor and council. Make your voice heaRD. aRE YOU LIKE SHEEP? Say you aren't gonna take it any more. Until then, you deserve everything you get. SHEEP!

found out from a town employee that manning and roach supported that big raise for that employee 2. u 2lost my vote. westside teachers a community service project for students. comb the hills and find out what rock mayor roach is hiding under because he is never at city hall. that is why the whole place is going to sh%t.

whatever.u must be related to those idiots. hey u ask the employees there at city hall yurself. they knew the next day what came down.i was not there. but it should be public record. call n ask each guy on the council how they voted. call um up georgio. the mayor broke the tie i heard and voted for the raise.anybody reading this can call him and ask him yurself. dont go by what i say. check the facts yurself. ask manning what side he was on n if he voted then see who is full of sh3t. town employees r there evryday and they see all. ask um how often they see roach. askum yurself. but dont say im full of it. check the facts people yurself.

checked the facts and found that any rate increase must have the approval of the public service commission which wouldn't allow a rate increase to pay someone a higher salary. guess you be wrong.
