The council’s Public Utilities Committee is scheduled to consider the request during a 5 p.m. meeting Wednesday, July 2, in council chambers at City Hall, 200 Lincoln Ave.

    Yes and so did the city which is one reason IVes gave for wanting to raise property taxes. IT seems to me if we weren't paying city employees six figured salaries--even for employees who do not perform well like the head of marketing for the CVB--, maybe we would have some money for projects. And if the county hadn't had to pay out on a whistle blower lawsuit, it too would have money.
    Time to stop giving away potable water--but then the city waters unnecessary flowers (and bendhes) daily on the plaza and in front of the library with potable water.
