WF water meter reader

OMG,can't believe it,I actually seen a water meter reader take the lid off of a meter, wipe off the top of meter and look at the reading,instead of guessing at the numbers as he walked or drove by.
Looked like a new guy as I hadn't ever seen him before and didn't recognize him.
That guy deserves a raise and maybe he can give dp and vs a lesson in meter reading

Do you people not have anything better to do besides shit talk hardworking people? If you people put as much effort into finding a job and getting off welfare as you do trash talking everyone else around you, this town would actually be thriving again. And all three of them work their asses off.

Surely you jest ! If working ones ass off means reading the newspaper at the back of a lot for 45 minutes,or laying ones hungover head on the steering wheel to nap or standing half the day to watch the big backhoe at the street dept work is working your ass off,I am in the wrong line of work.
I do agree with the post above,that said bring Ed back.He actually did work for the people that paid him.Still doing a great job as commish.

REALLY...if you believe this is what city workers do for a living, you are sadly mistaken. I'll tell ya what, wake up early tomorrow morning, grab your long underwear and strap on your boots and spend the day with the guys at the water, street, sewer departments. They are at the shed and ready to go at 7am, every day, ready to make sure you have water for your coffee, baths (assuming you bathe), laundry, toilets (again, assuming you have indoor plumbing), streets to drive on, ect. So, REALLY, don't judge a man before you walk a mile in his shoes. You obviously have no clue and your line of work would be that of a coward, being that you didn't share your name. City Hall is at the corner of Jefferson and Poplar if you have a problem/complaint and have the guts to walk in and talk shit about a man who busts his ass for the citizens of West Frankfort. People like you are pathetic and a big reason WF gets a bad rap.

Or, REALLY, if you'd like to leave your number, I'm sure these men would be happy to have you go along with them when they are awken at 2am on any given night to fix a water break, clean the streets of snow, unclog your sewer (AGAIN, assuming you have indoor facilities.) Drop your contact information off at City Hall (when you drag your butt out of bed) and leave it with one of the fine ladies in the office. They will be sure to pass it on to the superintendents of each department to get in touch with you. After spending some time away from your couch and bon bons and busting your ass, you may then submit a formal apology for slandering honest, hard working men who do all they can to keep WF up and running. Again, this is assuming you have the guts to show your face.

Don't drag the st dept into it.They ARE are great bunch and really do the job they are paid to do since R S took charge,the poster was talking about the water meter readers,and if the meter readers are busting their ass so be it,they get well compensated for it

Ok, so you say you did not fire the shot in 09 , what about dec. 2011 under ( water dept.) You trashed jim then!!! Next time you see your neighbor face to face you can explain that one. If you really know so much you would know that the super does what the commish wants. The street guys have been doing what their commish has wanted for a long time before roger ever went to the street dept. The reason roger is in charge is tara wants someone who will kiss her backside. Can't really blame her for that. The street guys are out doing what they always have. clean ditches, patch potholes, rock alleys ,etc. Nothing new. If they had more than 5 men and some decent equip. They could get more done.

. Jealous? Not hardly wouldn't have it. This was about someones posts, now you have made it about roger. So let me get this straight, you think because a person has worked for the city for years they (DESERVE A POSITION). What about qualifications or their work experience? Jim has over 25 years in the street dept. The next guy has 24 the next has 12. Roger has less than 2. Rogers experience has been in the garbage dept.I would have considered work experience and qualifications over length of time in another dept.

Why does it take a dump truck and a pickup to drive two limbs to wherever they go.

Looks stupid. Maybe so it will take longer so we don't lay you off.

No matter what the reason who is in charge of the spending on that.

Gas isnt free.
