Well said Mr Blackburn..I'm sure he would like to say more but can't... as for the city new "health care" plan... well rumor is $175 a month and a 5k deductible? That s not health insurance.. especially since the monthly cost goes back into the general fund since the city is "self insured" ... what a rip off... not to mention it was implemented by Mr dianaballe... who also by the the sits in on contract negotiations as well as uses the fire dept on ambulance calls as mucha possible. Using city services for personal gain ? So that meansany businesses in the city should be able to use police or fire... maybe to unload lumber trucks at Lowes ? No difference.... theft in office maybe ? And what a finance director...cost the city 300k and still has a job ? Woow... any where else not only would you be fired... may be in jail. Wake up people.... its only getting worse... few council people are aboutready for the nursing home I believe...od and losing their minds...:-)
