After going on 4yrs without a raise city council finally puts a 1% cost of living raise in the budget. A joke and slap in the face but better than nothing. Now they are wanting to take away the raise to give the airport $20,000 to plant grass. This is ridiculous!

What ever happened to the house that Dr Patterson donated to the city to be sold and the proceeds given to the police and fire department a few years ago? No one ever saw a dime of that.

Not saying they are any better then you, hell everybody needs a raise but I can assure you my husband has never done drugs in his life and he damn sure has not slept with the "only" woman that works there(I'm not certain you should call her that, there's better names for her!) And not sure why you would call them stupid. Yea I would say some guys there are but my husband is not in any of those categories you named....

You're an idiot and sound like a bitter ex employee. If its a bad economic time then why is it a good idea to spend $20k on grass for the airport. It's not about being special the city employees are supposed to receive a cost of living raise and now will likely not receive it.

Just by reading your recent post, you really seem like you lack A LOT of intelligence. I don't understand your comments, So please save yourself the trouble and stop talking. You are obviously the "trash".

I can see another election for more taxes looming!! Airport or pool or something all the time.. What I witnessed last summer with all the wasting money on flowers and watering and two guys in a new pickup could have saved lots..it's bad management folks... It's the democratic way... Spend spend spend... Ole taxpayer will brunt the load.. We just had to have the new bypass around north city down through school zone how great that's gonna be.. Millions spending.. If you drive downtown you can't go 3 blocks without seeing a police car.. Try it.. I know we need protection ... But it seems overkill..there's room for tighter belts in tighter times.. The taxpayer has to do it..

Where was Mark Lane, the city engineer and the Miller Newell Engineering when the decision was made on the dirt to be used at the airport. The city had two workers and water truck run most of the summer watering grass at the airport. It is bad management and incompetence by the city that the taxpayers are having to support. Morris did not have an agenda to curb waste, he asked the city department heads what they wanted, more money was what they wanted to continue waste. Have you noticed the piles of brush and trash in town, that is because they need new trucks. Spending money like a drunk sailor is no way to run a city.

They are trying to continue the myth "a city where thousands live like millions wish they could" . They are far more concerned with appearances and catering to the special interest than they are running the city for the people and it has caught up with them but they expect to continue on like they always have and just let the citizen either pay more taxes or do without basic services if that's what t takes to fund their projects. As long as it looks good on the outside, they do not care if it is financially sound or responcible. No one is holding them accountable.

The city isn't going to stop spending. Citizens will gripe if trash pick-up goes to one day a week or if a new tax is up for vote. If the council/mayor wanted to know about waste, t(he)y should ask the employees. Every department head just wants more money because some other department might get something that they didn't. They spend every penny of their budgets because if they don't, they "won't get as much next year". The cops get to drive (and wreck)city vehicles when they're off duty while the city pays the gas, maintenance, and insurance. Department heads work 15 hours a week and get paid for 40.
