Well, if you take in consideration the city employee manpower city equipment use for days and days. The event went into the red. So, was this a Fire Dept. event or a City event? If it was a Fire Dept. event is the Fire Dept. going to pay the city for the days of work by city employees and equipment??

What is that zoned for? I am sure they were ran off because the ex Mayor was also selling fireworks and he did want them there. That is how they use to roll over here.

you can go up to city hall and look what it is zoned for no back to the point mud-fest
1 city employs for fire department event
2 city equipment for fire dept fund raiser ind im sure the city paid for the gas and diesel and what not
3 city money to advertize
4 water for a mud pit while we are under water restrictions that came from an non-metered fire hydrant which mean the cost gets passed on to us

but good job trying to distract from the points

Mudfest? What a waste of time and money. need I mention the water wasted? It's only my opinion but they should have postponed the redneck gathering until the restrictions were lifted. Oh what the hell was I thinking? That would have been the right thing to do. We all know the shitty of Seven Points doesn't operate on "the right thing".

After seaching recent comments of neighboring cities, I did not see any concerning their decisions to provide their communities with public events. Our city is trying to bring us together and provide our residents and visitors with such events, Mudfest, and fireworks show/concert. Kick em when their up, kick em when their down, And this is why we will continue to be the only city everyone is laughing about, shame on us! I attended Mudfest and can say that it was a step in the right direction. Cities all over the USA hold events for their communities and yes it does cost money, guess we could ask Mark Cuban to foot the bill, lol. So now what? we continue to pull in oppisite directions and bicker? Guess there is no hometown pride in our city. But I am not going to cry about money spent on events to bring us together.

The point I'm tring to make is Joe is making all the decisions without council approval or at least in in public meetings. Joe can not use city General Fund money to pay for Fire Department events o in reverse. When will he make the funds coming in and going ourt reports public for the citizens to see??

The city has a budget to work from and the fire department has a budget to work from, I get that. But in a whole I believe the event to be a COMMUNITY event. Are they not allowed to come together for such events? We as a small town, in rural America have to expect that they will, as well they should. Yes the details of said events should be explained to the citizens. I would like for our city to become more active for our community and for the people who actually reside here to embrace such events. Maybe if we stopped looking to the PAST leadership and try to move forward we could hit the bumps that come along and work together to improve on how we can have more community functions without the separation of the citizens. I would also like to add that we live in East Texas, we all laugh and joke about rednecks, country folk, and so on, but to read some of the statements on this forum is down right saddening. People are so judgemental and mean with the name calling. You do not have to like everyone or every opinion, but respecting your NEIGHBORS is how I was raised.

You, show your uninformed about the cit limits to our city. Cedar Isle is in the City of Seven Points. However, the area across from Cedar Isle in not. This area is in Henderson County. As far as I know the city never made anyone move from this area for anything. Just drive by at most anytime and you will see people selling anything.
