48 acres of flood plain land for a park for assistance in water and sewage. I'm not seeing the benefit. 48 acres is a lot cheaper than putting in sewage and water for a new development. And if our current infrastructure doesn't meet demands, that means even more City money to fix it. I'd suggest the developer fork over a little more for the city then just 48 acres, that the city would have to maintain and fix up to make it a park.

I know if I were one of these new board members, then I would want the audits done quickly so that all the citizen would know that all the loss didnt happen on my watch. With that you tell us all what has been going on, how you plan to fix it and what course you want to take to improve it. Its time the FEDC, brings in real bussiness to this city that will increase the city revenues from the sales taxes. We dont need another pizza joint or a bank. We need to take advantage of the population growth brought here by the oil industry. Figure what these guys working out there want as well as the citizens. Bring in businesses that these guys will occupy and spend money in. This increased revenues will need to go to ensuring the infastructure is addressed as well as growth in the city emergency folks ie, fire, rescue and police. We need to ensure that with population growth comes the necessary police, fire and resuce to ensure the city is safe. With added population, comes more crime as well so the police force will have to grow.
One Voice, hopefully all of that will begin to come out as both entities will have their meetings tomorrow evening with their new board members. Time for the audits to begin ... Read More
One Voice, hopefully all of that will begin to come out as both entities will have their meetings tomorrow evening with their new board members. Time for the audits to begin so that the truth can come out as to how our tax dollars are being spent.
Each Corp can only stand so much debit load - if over loaded - they can not meet thier debt.
It is not all that hard. .. I know, I know - I will be told it is much more complicated than that.
You know - I don't think so.
These boards need to get the whole picture of what is going on financially - were we have been, how did we get there. What worked and what did not work.
And then - where do we want to go. And how are we going to get there.
These are not fancy thoughts or ideas - but, truth, transparency, and thinking of the community first are not fancy either. Let's see if these boards can keep it simple and to the point. ...

The ex-mayor is once again on Facebook talking about how attacks on city leaders should stop, citing an article from El Paso and comparing what happened there to here when he was mayor. If he truly believes that attacks on city leaders should stop, then HE should stop attacking the current council.
We never viewed anything directed at the former mayor as an attack, but simply questions relating to financial prudence in the programs he was pushing. It was not personal, it was business.
The sports complex was the main issue in local politics for months. Recent information indicates that financial support for the sports complex was available from a private company. Why was this not brought to light during the heated debate over the sports complex?
