    Hmmmmm, No replies?
    Here`s the big opportunity all you bithchers have been waiting for.
    Your very own chance to be on the council and change all the things you love to bitch about.
    One thing I have noticed about this board is any thing that has to do with the council attracts a lot of posts, I don`t read them anymore because they are all about the same thing but hey, now`s your chance to do something more than just sit back and whine from behind your monitor.

      People have a right to complain. Our hard earned tax dollars pay the salaries of the manager and council. If they did the job they are paid to do like hold the manager accountable and be transparent, then we wouldn’t complain. He sites he is sooo transparent. He is anything but. Politics isn’t for everyone. Bitching is especially If your not getting what you pay for.
