council just pissed away a lot of our OUR money with their past and present bad actions and bad decisions, AGAIN.

their hospital management and settlement confirms their stupidity, AGAIN.

when are they going to $top taking law$uit magnet joe'$ ignorant and bad advice on thing$ and get $ome $econd opinion$?

they should ask for his resignation, immediately. his legal advice and oversight is too often wrong and very expensive.

I was wondering if anyone would even notice.... really, either no one gives a $hit, or everyone is helpless. May as well pay up.

council should be forced to count it out and stack it up.

might make them work a little and actually think about it and give a crap when they screw up with our money.

are they capable of actually doing it?

counting and stacking up
- three thousand hundred dollar bills

or

how about
- thirty thousand ten dollar bills

or

even tougher
- three hundred thousand dollar bills

you are all pissin' in the wind. you are stuck with Joe and the boys, so get over it and move on. It will only get worse as new industry comes in, and enough revenue is generated to make up for the mistakes.

you are a person at needs. Why want you do something good? Like helping others in need! Help the children or help the needy! Really bright! Gone to court and lose 1.8 million! Do your home work! Don't put the blame on the Mayor or your council ... Ask your Old Mayor? He's the one with the answer. Do your research before you start crying. Eighteen Hundred Thousand Ten Dollar Bill!!! WOW!!! Think about paying that!!! Waiting on your reply?
well

the gamble was $1.3 million payout they asked for IF the judge saw it entirely their way.

IF the city was in the wrong - who approved the legality of the mgmt company termination by the city? our city attorney?

Joe is as good as city attorney as he was at honesty in the child support scandal he and his daddy and a few more were involved in.

We are in a mess, and will stay that way until we have both new city attorney and council. What I don't like is that we PAY them to lose our money.
I will not vote for you

silly post and claim by you since you can't even spell won't and you're.

if the people will again elect the current bunch of non-thinking, non-listening blow-hards, stupid fools, and dimwitted decision makers -they'll elect anyone.

council hired a mgmt company to run the city owned hospital and then fired them for some reason.
when their decision was challenged in federal court the council says oops and pays them 300k.

looks like bad original legal advice from our lawsuit magnet city attny when they were fired.

hard to deny piss poor council decisions and leadership, again.

i have very little faith we will get good true value on the $7.5 million pool project and wise use of the permanent 1/2 cent parks and rec tax from the current council.

based on past council actions and decisions we'll get skinned alive by the architects, builders, lawyers, bond folks, and various others involved.

re the 300k settlement. is the city so broke that we have to spread it out over 30 payments. would think we should have that much in reserves somewhere.

where is tis $300,000 going to come from? everyday spending and upkeep, streets, sidewalks, worker raises, new parks and rec money, hospital, economic development money?
