City Council extended Pete Kampfer's contract??

Yes that really was uncalled for , and you deserve whatever you get. ..... now my newest question . Why does the city have no problem posting jobs on TML but never posts them on the cities official web site ? Is it because they are not quite as broke as they are claiming ?  (Oct 19, 2010 | post #40)

Why should this suprise anyone ? This is the same way the fire department descision was made and also the descision to hire a financial officer. As for crew11 , 1. I am not a hater , I just state the obvious and 2. You take peoples opinions with a "grain of salt" ... wait you must be on city council.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #20)

City Council extended Pete Kampfer's contract??

I am sorry but Colorado City has become almost the ultimate reality tv show ..... And next week on "The City " Keith plans his rule over the empire with mat elections approaching , meanwhile Pete goes on air yet again to tell everyone what he's done while claiming his pay raise was only part of his contract. But watch what happens whne he gets back to city hall.....  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #9)

Why wouldnt the city council extend Pete ? They are pea's in a pod. Both lie , and completely ignore the citizens of Colorado City.Just how many house's went on the market in CCity this morning after the news.  (Oct 13, 2010 | post #4)

City is broke...but now City Manager needs a Financial As...

You could probably sell enough to fix the budget. Either that or sell T shirts that say Colorado City home of Texas's #1 snake oil salesman.  (Oct 11, 2010 | post #60)

Something better to focus on for a change!

I agree with you in some ways ... I met Roy and he was great , and will be missed by many. But i do know some of the people complaining are planning on running. Some though it will take more of a commitment than just putting up signs , it will take leaving their jobs. So please consider that.  (Oct 7, 2010 | post #3)

City's Budget Cuts-Just when convenient?

Amen ! Obviously this was a lie. There were many many ways to fix that budget ... if you havent seen it , it's available to the public. Anyone who has balanced a household budget could fix that. Give me 2 weeks with it , I'll fix it.  (Oct 7, 2010 | post #2)

Who would you like to see run for Mayor in 2011?

I have spoken with Justin Harris , and am all but sure he and Jim will not be running. So as much we'd all like to see them come back we are going to have to find some new people to run. I have a sinking feeling that Hiser will be running for mayor , which will leave his seat open. Any ideas ?  (Sep 28, 2010 | post #7)

Radio Show Tuesday morning....

As I watched football last night I noticed on the bottom if the screen that the NFL has started making plans if there is a lockout next year. The first thing they will do is the commisioner and senior vp's will take a pay cut. The mayor of Biloxi took an 80 percent pay cut so not to layoff any city workers. A secretary , and forgive me for not remembering where gave up her salary for a year just so her boss could keep their job. Then I see in California where a corrupt city council and mayor are making outrageous salaries voted on by themselves , which track are we on ? Why is it that we layoff workers while the city manager sits on high with his big fat pay raise , and sees no problem with what hes doing. If you want to cut public safety and other city positions just to cover the cost of a financial officer / assistant to the city manager at least say so. Don't cry budget crisis when your making the cuts only to have people realize you posted that position on Texas Municipal League 3 days before you started letting people go. And lastly , last time I checked this was America , a place where people have a right to say what they want wether other people like it or not , how dare you try to take that away.  (Sep 27, 2010 | post #12)

Yes small gov , by all means , let us not show how things work in Colorado City. Let's make this like Stepford , looks perfect on the outside but watch out for the evil little man behind the curtain.cWhy shouldn't people have a right to speak there minds ? Or is everyone just supposed to listen to the propaganda put out every couple weeks by PK on his talk show ?  (Sep 18, 2010 | post #43)

PK and free pass

Ask him ! Apparently he hasn't heard himself on the radio enough lately , because Tuesday morning at 9:15 KVMC is having another ask the city manager show. This is your Chance people , no more softball questions about dumpsters and dog permits. People need to call in and ask the hard questions and see if he will actually answer them. Make him earn that 10% raise he got.  (Sep 18, 2010 | post #2)

City/County Task Force-What a joke!

Living ...have to agree with you. And what is to say the sheriff will keep any of the existing force and not replace them all ? The mayor is trying to tell everyone how much this will save , but the truth is we , the taxpayers will still have the same city and county taxes as before. I do believe Linda Mathis a citizen with experience , would have been a nice choice. Why is it the same 15 or so people serve on every board in this town.  (Sep 9, 2010 | post #5)

If your Colorado City there is nothing wrong with this picture. It is as screwed up as everything else around here has become.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #2)

Closed for the Holidays?

Yes , thats sort of funny how he stated on the radio , KTXS , and the paper that 2 officers would be cut , and now they're hiring another full time officer. Yet another lie.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #9)
