This is about more than that idiot Alan Z, it is about a town going down the sewer because of misguided management. Alan has lost control of his senses and is full of himself, his wife and his father in law. Sad, very sad situation. And David City pays for this level of insanity through a budget designed by the deranged Mayor who thinks he is solving the problems of .........what?

Recall him, he's nuts.

Big Jimmy Mac was a succubus to the city's budget - eliminating his position took a lot of lard out of the budget for the future - Mac wanted a couple more years? I shudder at the idea of what toys he would buy for the street dept if that had happened... the last couple of snow seasons Mac would have the boys out throwing up sparks on the streets to remove dust with the snow blades - Mac was of the old school that thought if you had the money to spend that you spent it - whether you needed to or not. That is part of the reason, by and large, that our budget went to crap (and speaks to the larger problem in our country). At least Zav is getting out the knives and cutting out the fat. Mac spent 40+ years and got way too comfortable - He knew the ropes way too well and, lucky for him,he never got into trouble (taking care of his race car[s] on the city's dime among other things)- Hey, speaking of 'the ropes' maybe there is a future in professional wrestling for Mac... Finally, now Mac can go out to the city dump, take a long nap, and it won't cost the city a penny.

Oh Wah!!!!!
So the mayor fired someone who is well known for his afternoon nap at the old dump. As well as his corrupt gift accepting when bidding street work. Terry M is correct on one count, this town must be full of welfare recipients, and most of them are on this forum spewing their crap. Take a kids candy away and they seem to get very mad.
Most on this forum couldn't spell budget let alone make and follow one. After all, its always easier to bitch about cuts when your spending someone else's money.
GO Allen!!! Make my hometown fiscally responsible again.
As a Prior City Council Membrer I stopped out at the old dump one day about 12.20 and talked to Mr.McDonald who I have a lot of Respect for and always have He told me he had stopped at the ity office to pick up his mail over his lunch hour not getting paid to do so but went out to check on the dump looking at his mail

Any one knowing how City and County bidding projects work know that the City Council advertises for bids and approves all bids so if any one is taking bribes or gifts its the City Council or Mayor

Some people really dont know anything about anything Any time the snow was cleaned it needed to be done. And for budgets he paid more attention to the budget than any one never going over the budgets the council did approve

Yes, a typical response, make it personal and deflect what really happened. Just tell us that you don't like Jim and that you're a great believer in our rotund dictator. Save the financial crisis by getting rid of a guy your father in law despised. Big deal for David City. Yeah, right. Without Jim we are going to get rich!!

Guess surprises never end in our little city. Yes Chief Sunday, plus several other policemen, Bill Buntgen, Barb Hiatt, Police Dept. Jim McDonald, Water dept. manager, and many more left jobs because of insecurity! Yes we will have money now as the budget is greatly improved. Our Library, is closed Fridays, hours cut in half, and that is used by many school kids that do not have internet at home for school work. Keep taken boys, it won't hurt a little till your job is gone. Then you will feel what it is like to be approaching workers and tell them to lay there keys down. Lets clean house while we still have a broom!! All Mayors are alike! DICTATORS!!!!!!

Please don't list Mr. McDonald with those other names, he is very different from the rest. The only similarity is that he's gone also.
The Library situation. Is at the foot of Mayor Zavodny and he should be ashamed of himself for doing that to the kids and old people who use the Library.
Every time I drive down 11th Street and see the $500,000 that was spent unnecessarily, I am very mad at Zavodny for being so stupid and gullible. That Betzen isn't very smart but he pulled the wool over the eyes of the Mayor so he could keep a high paying job with little responsibility. Keep Betzen by spending $500,000 and close the Library. Shame on you Mayor, shame on you.

I dont believe the Mayor closed the library, He just cut the budget. Someone else decided that they should close instead of making tough budgetary decisions. Sounds like when our old police department decided that if we cut their budget they couldnt afford to unlock anyones cars anymore. Scare tactics. How about the Library management think outside the box and arrange some volunteers to work a few more hours each a week, Problem solved. Government institutions always get too fat and oversized unless held in check by someone. I wonder how much the library budget has grown in the last 20 years.

Il bet that the Library budget has not grown as much as the Water/Sewer Dept budget has. Take a look over 20 years and let us know.

Tell us all about the $500,000 spend in a moment of foolishness by the Mayor on an outdated, too expensive to generate electricity powerplant. Half a million dollars down the drain, without benefit of one extra cent of income to offset the expense....totally STUPID.
