Open Letter to Mayor Lowery

that makes sense, if the mayor was blaming it on Ameren when it was the city, did he really think ameren wouldn't set the record straight?  (Mar 12, 2010 | post #169)

Open Letter to Mayor Lowery

It's my understanding that the City cancelled the meeting because some people questioned why the city was providing and paying for heavy hors d'oeuvres when the city employees had to take a pay cut. But the Mayor didn't want everyone to know that so I think the offical press release stated it was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Now the Mayor has spent thousands on mailing postcards about all the town hall meetings he set up to replace the one meeting..... leave it to Bob, if he's not wasting money in one way, he'll find another.  (Mar 12, 2010 | post #162)

Florissant Tax Increase

The Mayor is NOT smart enough to prepare a fiscally sound budget and for years the city council has not paid close enough attention (maybe they didn't give a dam that our tax dollars were being wasted) to what is being budgeted and what is not. For instance, the additional $25,000 needed for telephones… it’s entirely possible that during last year’s “budget process” an amount that would have met the need for the entire year WAS asked for and with no thought to how it was going to be paid in the end, the Mayor slashed the budget. If that didn’t happen with this account I will guarantee it happened with another account or ten. As proof of Tom Schneider’s infinite wisdom he was quoted in the paper as saying "There might be some minor tweaks, but I'm sure it will pass pretty much the way it's been presented," REALLY?? REALLY??? Has he LOOKED AT the budget?????? And Randy McDaniel (I AM NOT SAYING HE’S NOT A NICE GUY) BUT COME ON… it’s 2009, you can’t use Excel and have a few formulas auto total each section of the budget??????? NO EXCUSE for addition errors in the budget.  (Oct 14, 2009 | post #129)

SAVE Dunegant Skatepark

If Jim Eagan was alive the skate park never would have been done in such a half ass manor to BEGIN with - put on the edge of town where it would hard to monitor. And he wouldn't have pissed away all of the water money so the park rangers and police wouldn't be stretched to their limits!  (Oct 3, 2009 | post #77)

Londoff Tent Sale

the council is moving to make it possible for businesses to have 'tent' sales but they aren't moving fast enough for londoff so he's going to have another tent sale I believe next week and he told tim lee that he plans to have the sale whether or not it's legal, cuz it was great for biz, as tim lee put it londoff is going to blantantly break the law... i dont give a tinkers damn who you are - that's NOT right  (Sep 16, 2009 | post #15)

Florissant Tax Increase

That IS the $ the mayor and council have been spending all these years... it's gone or darn near gone. If memory serves me correctly it was Nancy Lubiewski who pushed for that $ to be put in a special fund set aside and a few years later the mayor and city council closed that account and co-mingled the $ with the general revenue fund Much harder for us to see where it's going!! And they did the same thing when they closed the golf fund and put it in with the park budget - this mayor is all about HIDING what's going on!! Lowery is constantly saying he wants people to know and that his administration is transparent but then he goes and does crap like this!! The council is going to discuss the budget AFTER the regular council meeting in an executive session that should be OPEN to the public if anyone is interested in hearing what they have to say.  (Sep 14, 2009 | post #42)

Police Searching For Two Teens Who Attacks Store Clerk

The residents of Florissant have to keep asking and asking for what we want, we can not give up. I truly believe that Florissant has some incredible employees in all departments but when you work for someone like Lowery who yells at, cusses at, berates and belittles his employees, those employees are not inspired to go above and beyond for their employer and instead have a F*** U additude and do as little as possible. You sure as hell aren't going to bend over backwards for that person. We must keep on Lowery without fail about the budget and more police, etc... Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on. Robert F. Kennedy  (Sep 4, 2009 | post #14)

Meridian Waste

Rat, I'll be interested in hearing what Meridian says about why your bill went up so high however, st. Louis county has been requiring that trash companies provide curbside recycling for a while now so EVERYONE (in the county not just Florisant) is paying for recycling whether or not they recycle. Hope you're recycling already!! Do you have a Florissant tote???  (Sep 4, 2009 | post #13)
