correction: Pickleball courts. You know, it's what she has talked about for the past 2 years. What about the Parks Bonds that we are all going to be paying for years to come? Let her flight with her colleagues to use some of that money on Pickleball courts. It's a shame that she is not looking out for our younger generation, just her generation of friends that have taken up Pickle Ball for exercise. Sorry, but street lights & sidewalk for our youth are, by far, way more important that any Pickle Ball Courts!

Done deal! Were stuck with Carioscia & Stout for yet another long year. Is there a "Celebration party" being held at "The Dixie Roadhouse". Their savior Carioscia will be around for yet another year to defend them thru thick & thin and to attempt accomplish what his friends really want, which is, "Permanent extended bar hours until 4:00AM". CW Stout's immediate response to the money saved by changing to even years was "Spend it on PICKLE BALL counts!!! Watch last evening council meeting. They are already looking to spent the money on their own "personal interests". NEWFLASH -- How about using the money for some street lights & sidewalks for our kids that are walking to school and bus stops in the dark!!!!!

Many are wondering if this is legal? When the current council was elected, we were told that it was for a 4 year term. Now in the 8th hour, the rules get changed! What about all the constituents that are NOT HAPPY with their districts council member and were looking forward to new representation in 2019? What next, no terms limits? The election was supposed to be this year & now we are allowing current council members to grant themselves an extra year without consulting the public. How can this be legal???? This should be on the ballot.

What about "Time Limits"???? It was my understanding that council members couldn't serve more than 8 consecutive years as a councilmen/women. That would disallow Councilmen Carioscia from staying on council for another year.
