On the agenda for the next city council meeting.....spend $20,000 plus dollars on a study to see if Fire consolidation is feasible. I have a noble idea....put it towards the water bond and save someone from losing their job!! Wishing this city was run by working folks. Those retiree's from the Cove are ruining this city!

Could you name some past working folks who served as mayor or councilmen in St. Marys that you would put forth as quintessential exemplars of your "working man" theory of superior legislative performance?

when you are too ignorant, lazy and stupid to make a decision you order up a study.

consolidation could save hundreds of thousands of dollars if installed correctly. the size of the ivestment we're talking about seems like a worthwhile expense. besides whose job do you save with 20 grand? a firefigher for four or five months (when you factor in benefits)?

Such a simple project. If there is not enough talent in house to do this study then maybe we are getting to the root of all the other problems.
Remember when one of the "leaders" decided to pay a friend/neighbor to do an exercise class for the seniors? Smells the same.

It needs to be understood that St. Marys has a procedure that they follow and stick to it. You don't appoint or hire the best. You find some reject that may have the ability but will just sit back and accept the premise that they are puppets for inept coucil memebers and officals. They are get along go along suck ups. It works for the Council but not for us.

What the hell is an international association doing running my town? I did not vote for anyone like that. Are the members of council too stupid to figure it out themselves or do they just want to push some tax payer's money to friends or family.

I think you just hit the nail on the head, that is exactly what is going on is all these surveys and things we are paying for is getting ridculous(sp) someone is making money off of it and we are sitting back and letting them continue to do it, if they can't figure things out with out wasting more money then what are they doing in office.

we need another study do determine how much tax dollars can be spent to get their way. As much as they want. Obama is their mentor.

The problem is, of course, that we do not have a council comprised entirely of "working men" armed with nothing more than "common sense."

When are you people going to wise up? City has this great program of appointing and/or hiring committees, etc. and they don't have to try and figure out the problems they have created that they can't solve. If you have a problem just shove it off on some nit wits on a committee with no authority and that is the end of that. It works for them, just not for us.
