Kathy Miller is more than correct. So,city council really has the right to spend/blow our money...as we all know they will do? Just keep on spending/blowing our money on all their "favorite person/pet projects"? And so, then the neglect of the suburbs/city water lines will continue until we all start to raise hell. Right? Right! Some of these proudly elected "council people" cannot manage their own properties, such as cutting their grass, w/o getting cited and fined. Council has proven over the years that many are inept and only want to fight with each other. City council is about a recycling family members/friends for council positions. Then they behave like kids who always wanted to be a on a high school student council.....but... couldn't get elected...like... who's the most popular kid. If council doesn't take care of the money they collect from suburbs/city...these suburbs/city paying residents are going to come right after council and take them and their questionable sorry laws to task. Customers are looking for more service from the water department other than getting a bill and sending water through the lines to billing addresses. Like, maintain these delivery lines. You've been paid for years, now take care of your customer base.Tearing down all those beater houses with our money is not doing water line maintenance. Bill the banks, out of state owners and local residents who walk and leave these beaters go. Get off dead center. How hard is that to do? Pumping up downtown w/supposed "repurposed" buildings, hotels and newly "recycled" eateries each year does not maintain our water lines. Get all your thrifty law books out Hume. This ugly little can of worms is just beginning to spill open.

NO ONE wants to open any form of business in this area. Thugs want it that way too. Crime and violence is more than obvious. Ms. Woodberry, you'd best wake up. Turn that place into a combination sheriff/police barracks w/a courtroom w/bulletproof glass, plus a holding unit. Make sure the bldg has bulletproof glass, is surrounded with a 16 foot high spike tipped iron gate topped with barbed wire around it. Now this......is useful!

Wow kids. You people are just ripping the serious guts out of each other. 1) BloBagBammma is still in office. 2) We still have NO idea who is going to replace him and 3) Nothing has changed. Take it one day at at time. Going to be a reallllllyyyy long time until November gets here. Don't wear a hole in your keyboards.

Really Franko? Slow news days? And so... you come up with this pitiful idea? Just go watch TV for a while or try reading a book. You'll come up with something. But... THIS... isn't it. No 15 minutes of fame here for you.

OK Folks..think this is all so good now?? City wants to see how Marchionda's been blowing all the grant money they gave him....and he's claiming his 5th amendment right...when you can hear someone thinking...ya better stand back and take a second look!!!! This NYO and all other associated Marchionda party bus' are coming to an end...in court I suspect. If it's a cheater....then so be it. More dirty fingernails downtown floating money.

Great idea Boardman. This is a much needed program.

Please...no mention, honorable or otherwise..for Marchionda....all he does is float grants from one project to another and use other people's money to buy buildings while greasing palms...has nothing from his own pocket invested in anything downtown.

No doubt, needs mental help....and a long sit in a jail cell for such hateful behavior.
