What does the City of Bloomington Admin staff do? How many are there? I hear people are tripping over each other, maybe a lot of them are interns – but what do they do?
Tonight yet ANOTHER consultant is going to report to the City: (from the bird-cage liner)
Raftelis Financial Consultants Inc. will update the council on the progress of its sanitary sewer and storm water fee/rate study.
Any guesses on what will be reported?
Is the City staff to chicken to report the City needs to charge more?
Remember the days when only one sewer system existed? Everything ended up in the same big concrete doicky and flowed out to be treated.
Enter the EPA with a brilliant idea to cost you twice as much money! Sewer water and storm water has to be separate now. I hear low flow toilets can wreak havoc on the pipes having enough water, but heck the EPA will come up with some fix. Supposedly two systems was created to reduce flooding. Twice the price was immaterial.
Anyway, what does David Hales and his staff do? Research what consultant needs some public bucks? How much to they have to give for campaign contributions to make the “preferred” consultant list?
