 Ease up a bit Vet,  these little get togethers are for a little free press anyway. Makes these 3 look like they care what we want. None of them have listened to the public's opinion since the took office. Coffeehouse seats about 12 people. Let's count....3 commissioners, 1 reporter, 1 photo guy, and a couple of customers who just happen to walk in for coffee and you end up with 1 or 2 citizens and they have unrealistic ideas to try to get attention.

2 OPTIONS:

1. Buy more SALT !!!

2. Give an outside research firm $100,000 to do a study on how to heat the streets, but make sure they give you the money back behind closed doors!!

Factitious

Road salt is an over-used taxpayer expense we pay for three times:

1 - Buy the salt
2 - Pay to apply it
3 - Pay for the corrosion damage to cars and infrastructure

Sandusky has the right idea - use it sparingly at intersections and hills. For every panic-stricken incompetent driver who whines, I sure there are several who appreciate the wisdom of using moderation with salt.

Sell Sandusky however you can, including making a video of Sandusky's good points and posting it on youtube.

 

Fix Cable Street east of Wayne

 

Start executing gang bangers.

 

Get rid of the excessive bereavement, personal and sick days in union contracts.  If 90% of the city's taxpayers don't get these from the businesses they work for then why should city workers be so enshrined?

Suggestion #1: Get new commissioners

Suugestion #2: See Suggestion #1

Doesnt it seem like a sentence which has ANYTHING to do with Deidra Cole making financial decisions...should be the punch line to a joke??  But nope....it's reality!! GOD HELP US ALL!!!

JohnDorian12: Ditto. And ditto again.

 Sam Adams and JohnDorian12, you are both right. Our commission has someone who obviously can't make their own financial decisions, but are making them for the city. Then we had a commissioner that promised "hope and change", drop this city like a bad habit. The thing that amazes me the most, is that they were among the top vote getters in the election. OK, so now one is gone, and the other filled a seat by default (Thanks Brett)  I  guess the more one sided press you get, the better off you are.

Cityslicker: You say that the commission has somebody on it that can't make her own financial decisions, yet she's making them for the city.......

All I've got to say for that is------considering all the visiting  judges that are brought into this county every other week at the taxpayers expense, it sure is obvious that these Erie County judges certainly can't make their own "decisions"................... and fixing cases doesn't come cheap, ya know!
