To the editor:
This city is out of control - we are getting a tax increase, a fee on electric bills, and now a fire fee increase. And most of the fire increase is for road work; what a joke.
We need new management in this city along with people on the city council that will look out for the taxpayers and not the union employees.
Hope the people turn out to vote and vote this crew right out of city hall along with the city manager.
They have made no cuts in city services, they operate Sun Splash and never made a profit, and movie house they have is a joke. If people want this open, turn it over to a organization that will run it.
And do we need a police force when we have a Sheriff Dept.? Can we afford to keep paying the city police brass and pension benefits and high salary just for them to give out tickets? And we need to look at fire services. A lot of cities have volunteer services and they work well. Why not here.
If we don't make cuts in services, soon we are going to end up like Detroit.
