Re: “Waste Water

Get a clue Ron: You just smeared your ignorance all over the internet. That is why people like you don't use their names.

Re: “Waste Water

To: Get a clue Ron, It has occurred to me who you are. I am now going to address you as Sweetie. It is just the opposite of what I usually refer to you as. The water rates are going up too, so you can't use the water meter theory to discount the fact of mismanagement. Let's use one of the non-profits meaning non taxpayers that the City of Eureka has given deferred loans. They own 6 million dollars of property in the county, mainly in Eureka. The CEO of this non taxpaying entity, that you say helps the needy is helping herself to $90,000 a year. They keep their "affordable housing" in shambles. But, recently on the internet I read where they now have a profit-sharing plan. How's that for a oxymoron. 2008 they put $265,000 into the plan. That is if their tax return is correct. Next, the MAC, the city is paying just about 50,000 to 55,000 a year in loan payments. Did that come out of another account too. There are enough l/2 houses in the City of Eureka for a population of 280,000. The money that has been wasted in this city could feed a small country.

Re: “Waste Water

Well "Get a clue Ron" one million dollars for remodeling city hall. We're paying interest on that one. 2 million for unnecessary water meters. What was it 286,000 for a arbitrator for the fire and police department complaints. Saw where the city paid over 100,000 for someone to write a grant request. Saw where the city paid over 130,000 a couple of years ago for s study so they could have raises. How many properties aren't getting any property tax because the city has given them long term exclusive rights to bid. The city also under the guise of redevelopment has loaned l00,000's of thousands dollars to non-profits with deferred or amortized arrangements. None of them pay property taxes. If this city is broke it is because of poor management. Helping a few people with sewage rates shouldn't be a big deal in a well run city.
