Im glad to see Mr. Berry is running for mayor. I would be way more happy if he wins that he gets in there and start taking names and start holding people accountable for the job the are supose to do. The city needs to stop over charging EVERYONE for the water bills. Its rediculous. My water meter has not been read in years. I have gone as far as writing my meter readings down everyday at the same time.jeeping a spread sheet. Ive put up cameras. Guess what. They guesstamate your water bill. Yet they hire someone to read meters but he dont. Mr. Berry if you win or Mr. McCrate if you win this needs to stop. I hired a lawyer 11 months ago that is why i have a spread sheet of daily water meter readings. I will win a law suit when it comes time to file suit. I have went around town speaking to resisdence. And the response is the same. Everyone is being ripped off. Thats fact!! People get charged for swimming pools and dont even have one. Mainly because a previous renter/owner had one. People including myself have complained many of times at city hall yet nothing is being done. I have a tip for you. Go to your water meter and cover it with some mud see if they come read it. They wont. Its sad it has to come to a law suit but what else do you do. When your complaints dont get results. Do the math if they over charge everyone 5 to 10 bucks a month we have how many homes, buisness's, apartments, ect in this town. Yeah the city probably making 7 grand month off of us by over charging water bills. 80 grand a year.. Total BS.

i too had had some. ssue this year but both times i went to city hall and complained someone from the city came and got a meter reading that day. matter of fact they read my meter today some guy in that white flat bed truck. About and hour ago. Dont know if he read anyone elses but i know he did mine. The person I talked to was Michelle at city hall. Dont understand why you complained and they did not do another meter reading. I do beieve there is an issue with the.city reading meters but they are trying i think.

Are you sure it's your meter? There's several places that have their meter on different streets.

The entire water, and sewer people need to be booted. The YES man that is head of it, does not know what he is doing. Just thinks he is a pretty boy.

I hope Vince Berry gets it. He helped when we had the flood, when nobody else would. I just hope he stands up to the Department heads, and don't buddy up with them. The department heads are a bunch of losers when it comes to their job, such as the water department.

well looks like there are some issues that need fixn. Vince, if you win do not end up like a chumplike the rest of the mayors. Listen to us in the public. Dont worry just because someone is pokr or someone is rich we all live in this town and you need to have a bias opinion. Even with the complaints. But if it walks like a duck talks like a duck its probably a duck. Keep an open mind. You got my vote.

If you look on his face book page, Vince Berry for Mayor, he has a plan to deal with the water meters. Think vince would be a great mayor. He has been an alderman and is always there to help the city when they need help. He is also a working stiff like us and isn't afraid of speaking his mind.

That is exactly what we need. Vince, I hope you don't let us down Buddy. Some of the other heads of departments need firing. Get new blood in this town, and lets get it moving forward, instead of backward, like it has done in the past 30 years. People just want to be mayor, because they think it is prestigious, but don't do a darn thing. Come on people, lets get Vince the MAN in.... and move forward.

You know that guy that was head of the street department was overbearing, and thought he could do anybody the way he wanted to, but thank God, he was booted, and left town. Some of the ones on there now need to be booted, and kicked out of town. Lets don't get out hopes up though, because some of the big commissioners will work to keep him from being elected, to get their YES man in the seat of mayor.

Oh yes Vince does have a plan to combat certin things, departments, and issues with in the city like the water bills. He can not do it alone he will need our support. And he will have my vote and support along with many many many others. He was a great alderman and will make a great Mayor if elected.

R U, you are going to have to be a little more specific. I have seen them both at Billy's and Klipels. But if you are speaking about Vince, I have seen him in other places. I have seen him volunteer as Koury League commish last year. I have seen him devote his time to write grants for the city free of charge. I have seen him sand bagging houses and levees during the flood. I have seen him and the rest of the CERT folks volunteer after tornadoes, floods, wind storms, ice storms and hurricanes. I have seen him devote his time as an Alderman AND he still has time to hold a full time job and be a "barfly". Pretty good time management abilities.
