Something special is missing from comedy

  • Aug 18, 2009 at 12:43AM

Letters to the Editor City taxpayers have a right to accountability

  • Aug 18, 2009 at 12:42AM

I was horrified to read in the Aug. 5, 2009, Courier-Herald the city was planning on raising our sewer rates by 50 percent or more. This is on top of the solid waste rates increasing as I mentioned in my letter to the editor dated July 8, 2009. At the city council meeting on July 27, the public works department stated they wanted to purchase two new cars. If there is such a need to increase our rates, especially so drastically, why is the city contemplating purchasing new cars, remodeling conference rooms and changing logos? (The cost of changing the logo on city vehicles, stationery, etc., is going to be very expensive). The tax/rate payers are being asked to shoulder heavy burdens already in our poor economy, why add to the burden unnecessarily? Determine what is an absolute necessity and shelve all others until our economy turns around. In our own personal budgets, we have to differentiate between needs and wants; why shouldn’t we expect our city to do the same?
