The Year Of Promise
his Facebook page about selling our water system, actually it's only a fifty year lease. And it was written in a town near Bethlehem "a unique solution has been identified that is not only feasible, but I believe, the right thing to do. City Council and I propose a long-term lease of the city’s water treatment and distribution system and the sewer collection, treatment and disposal system." I was under the impression that City Council had to evaluate and approve this proposal, seems as if they're already on board. The apostle Julio is mentioned. "City Council President Julio Guirdy expressed concern that public consideration be just as important as the city’s, so we have scheduled four public meetings on the first four Thursdays in August to present this proposal to the public and listen to your feedback." If both the mayor and city council has already decided that this is the way to go, these public meetings are just the usual dog and pony shows. In a proclamation biblical in tone, Pawlowski declares 2012 the year of promise. "This proposal represents a fantastic opportunity to cover our costs, shore-up our bottom line and avoid tax increases for the foreseeable future. I called 2012 the Year of Promise. With this option we can realize our promise. It gives us the ability to rebuild our financial foundations, leverage the progress we have forges together, and turn our progress into success." Be sure to attend those public meetings, your opinion on the subject surely matters to them.
