If some of the employees would get off of their ass entitled asses they would need about half the labor force that they have. I saw two of them last week out on a site, went by at 11, they appeared asleep-back by at 1....still asleep

If you read the article, you would know that the funds are needed to upgrade the city's wastewater treatment facility as well as to pay for the solution to the CSO problem. The city's wastewater infrastructure is as old as you and Effie are. Everything costs more now. Everyone will benefit from this investment.

Labor and facilities are two different issues. Getting rid of lazy employees will do nothing to solve the problem of aging infrastructure. Have you any idea how old the headworks of the wastewater treatment plant is?

Upgrading the facilities could reduce the amount of semi-skilled labor required.

Guess youíre not understanding what Iím saying, the savings from the termination of lazy employees will have a cost savings to replace aging equipment, also what was not commonly know is that a certain city manager of the facility sold new scrubber equipment to the scrap yard for its brass years ago and was covered up.

The replacement of more productive Individuals, 4 lazy ones verses replacing with two productive people.

I'm not going to argue workers, that's a management issue. I'm not going to discuss previous managers, that's a political issue. All I suggest is that upgrading the facilities is a sound investment and some of it is legally mandated.
