If the Council claims the Water Department funds are diminishing and therefore they have to raise rates:
In 2013 $400,000 was “borrowed” from the water fund for road resurfacing, I don’t know if it ever got paid back.
Also in 2013 $ 2,400,000 was LOANED to the Coliseum. In 2015 that loan was written off.
Next see PDF page 282:
The City is now advertising who is screwing the taxpayers by spiking their pensions. They actually named an employee and how much his spiking is going to cost you and how much extra a month his pension will garner.
Instead of just changing the policy for all employees, including union contracts during negotiations, it looks like the City wants to shame employees into policy changes. The council is now the: No Guts Gang
I’m sure staff will be blamed. Gee, Nikita Richards is in HR. Is this her idea?
Is Human Resources going to go back and post the names and amounts of everybody who has already spiked? Or. are they just calling out individuals they want to expose?
