Seriously. We're going to put $35,000 into a 20 year old brinks truck. Just another vehicle that will sit around at the police lot. Then I read they throw out a lawn mower that would've been used almost daily. Nice budgeting of our money. You should be thrown out.

Cuts cuts cuts. I think it shoud all be cut. Forget a new mower, forget some used truck that needs money and work.
Direct the police dept to patrol more in the high crime neighborhoods.
Consolidate and cut staff. Gravy train is over.
Cut mayor salary, cut dept head salary and eliminate health insurance for the common council.

The decision to postpone purchase of a new mower makes sense given the current conditions. I think the counselors would gone along with the proposal if the administration had show savings in payroll but that was not the intent, it seems. The mayor reasoned that the new mower would save time so staff could be assigned to other (non-specified) tasks.

Go look at the hunk of junk. Whomever the mechanic is that gets stuck working on it will be busy for a year. Let's put $40,000 into a 20 year old junk box.

The council has been useless. They are only intrested in getting face time. They only make a rummble once in a while in order to make it look good. The truth is they are behind the scenes kissing Joe Joe ass. Just like the councilor, and Joey working behind the curtain to spend CDBG money to buy out their friends slum house they can't rent. Just happens that person is the same one who lied and worked their ass off to get Fusco and that councilor in office. Payback must be nice to use the system to try and pull the wool over people's eyes. So the rest of the council are still a bunch of bubble heads. They should have forced the issue of laying off all the knot heads Fusco hired since he has been in office. They all need to be replaced.

Lawn mowers? Really?
If this fiscal cliff situation isn't resolved things will be disastrous and the freaks in this city are discussing a freaking lawn mower?

Rome is not even a real city.A city has a population of 50,000 or more.This is once upon a timeville.We dont need more than half of all this crap we are paying for.And the base GLDC is a circus of personal misused funds being run by a bunch of little people from the land of oz.Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain,hi frank.

I sure hope JK Ciccotti runs against that fat piece of sponge cake Sparace. Sure JK has had his issues,at least they are on the table. Sparace is a slimey,sneaky wanna be. East Romans I hope you are paying attention. JK got a couple hundred votes as a write in last year,I sure hope he's on the ballot this year. Sparaces father in law Dan Guggi sure did a lot of bad mouthing of JK last year. Maybe people who live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones. Didn't Mrs. Guggi get arrested for pilphering funds from the Rome Housing Auth? Be careful Dan.

Guggi is mad that Fusco found that he is lazy fatass. Guggi was up Browns ass too. Until Brown realized the same thing. LAZY as hell.
