Here's the word . . .
O AND M
"I wanted to let you know one thing Mensa Man (mm) and Slie James will not tell you. The operation and maintenance cost of street cars is not included in the new tax for the streetcar. The o and m money will have to come out of the city budget. The money mainly pays for the electricity.
"Slie and MM knew this was coming so they created the street maintenance fund to pay for this. They said they would pave streets with the money, remember the $19 million of street paving lie? Last year they paved $12M and this year $11M ( no one ever explained what happened to the rest of the money.) Now this paving money will be used for o and m. Russ planned this from the beginning. The cost of o and m according to their website is $3.5 per mile per year. So the first phase is $7.7M, phase 2 will be $16.1M. That is a total of $24M.
"Even Slie can count and there is not enough money to run the toy train. So what they are doing, cut cut cut the city apart to pay for it. Public Works is laying off every quarter to reduce costs, fire has been cut, and the police are next. All so Russ can ride the rails like his Mom did. Just remember you were warned when trash pickup goes to every other week and bulky service is stopped. Wait till they cut snow removal. It is coming!!!! There is nothing left to cut. They will fire Troy to delay the blame coming to them, but it is coming.
"Just try and ask the council about this and watch the blank look on their faces, or watch them run! KC, you are about to be screwed, wake up and say no. You were warned!"
