i pray you are right they sure are not worried about the people or the town. all they want to do is fight each other and pad their wallets.

It appears that the changes that Saltville needs should start with a new town council. This one appears to be only interested in personal vendettas and not what is best for the town.

The town council does not like the current chief of police for what ever reason. It appears that they will do anything to get him out of office, including but not limited to, trying to ruin his name, and hounding his new wife in the work place. They monitor every minute she is in or out of work, (i have it on good authority that she is under a doctors care) and nose in to her home life as well so I hear. I am subject to hearing things through the grapevine just like everyone else, but when the same story is told by so many there has to be some truth. There is another worker there who misses as much or more work with no doctors excuse and that person is never questioned. The business of the town and it's other citizens are on the back burner while they focus all their time and efforts in this personal attack on one person and a few dogs. Speak with your vote if you truly want your council to work for you and what you want to see happen with the future of your town. I am not a stirrer of the stink so I think this will be my last comment for a while.

"think about it" I agree with you 100%. I understand that there is 1 town council member, in particular, that does not like Mr. Surber and you are correct, "they" are doing whatever they can to ruin him and his wife. I sincerely hope this is not your last post, but I understand if it is.

Just read the June council minutes. Explain by Vince would request a raise for the police invest. when the new budget had not even been passed? Would that not have been discussed in the work shops? So, if passed what line item would it be taken from? Reading those minutes makes you understand that no one is really looking ahead.

Are they wanting to raise water and sewer rates along with real estate taxes? This is not Abingdon or Bristol where there are jobs. The citizens will pay for the water company coming in. Oh wait the town has already supposidly ponied up $600k of the citizens money.

To whomever judged the last post as nuts go back and read the budget for 2013-14. In it there's two lines for the water company being paid over 308k. Now double that. My math says over 616k. And they said they're broke. Hell they're breaking us.

Hard to belive that the Town management cannot
run the water treatment for less than $ 616,000 !

Guess it is much simpler to wrtite two checks to
Veola rather than actually planning and managing
the details of water treatment and billing.

and Veola has the right to sell OUR water to
anyone for profit - will Saltville get any
royalties on these sales ?

Water is an evermore incresingly valuable resource.
Veola knows this !
The only benfit I see here is that Mike and Steve
now have less to manage and less headaches.

Let's outsource all town operations !

Then Mike and Steve will have nothing to do but
sit around Town Hall and collect those fat salaries
and benefits.

Why are they not using the new trucks recently purchased by the town? They are still parked beside the town hall.
