A good place to start would be by electing the ones who will actually show up for the scheduled meetings. Along with that, a discussion should be started regarding term limits. (On a state and national level as well!)
The cost of those signs and the advertising is minuscule when compared to the overall cost of the projects. Can you imagine the outcry if people were not made aware of what was underway?
I am very happy that the work is being done! The little bit of inconvenience due to the constuction will be well worth the benefits we will see this fall when construction is over! Sounds to me like some people don't have enough to complain or worry about.
The "once-thriving retail hub"? Did I miss that part or something because I sure did not see it out there! Sears and Shopko were the only thing that held it together, and you still had to go to the tricities to buy anything even slightly special or out of the ordinary.
I do however, wish the new owners the best in their redevolopment endeavors. I hope that the new facility can maintain better than the fifty percent occupancy rates of the old Blue Mountain Mall, and look forward to seeing our urban "bomb crater" cleaned up as soon as possible!
Wow! The city has a street maintenance program? And all this time I thought it was a street DESTRUCTION program! Like the letter to the editor said recently: Take a drive on Highland Road! Sure. A couple of storm drains were added. The heavy trucks and equipment also caused the surface to crumble even more than it was!
I have a family member in local law enforcement. I googled his name and came up with not just his address, but phone number, business address and phone number, wife's name and the names of several other family members as well. All that in just the first two pages. If I felt like paying for it, I would probably get a whole lot more than that. Turn the name search back on County! There are a lot of honest people who use it in the course of doing business every day!
Sort of like the retirement "raise" for Chuck Fulton, ill conceived and poorly timed. And the City wants to annex the area I live in? Nah, sorry, not interested! Not with that kind of financial wisdom and leadership. I want no part of it, even it is ONLY a couple thousand dollars!
I believe that the members of the City Council would be quite safe in assuming that most, if not all, of the residents of "the city's southern Urban Growth Area boundary" have no interest at all in being annexed into the city. There are those who may be bound by utility service agreements who have little choice, but I suspect they will be annexed only while kicking and screaming with outrage about it.
Not a good move by council as an effort to balance the budget, and $200,000 is only a drop in the shortfall bucket as it stands today with negotiations with the three city unions still outstanding!
I would be willing to wager that the land is in College Place!
Yes, it appears to be. I have always liked that old barn and was hoping it could be saved rather than going the way of so many in the valley. Too bad more are not able or willing to save the old barns on their property! They are a lot of work and expense if you have no use for them.
There was an interesting article in the Tri-City Herald today regarding the pools in Pasco. They have several, and all are in need of serious maintenance or they face closure. I found the cost-per-visit figures interesting. Seems that WW is not the only city with pool issues and not enough cash to fix them.
