Apparently the city will be getting a new Mayor for a few hours on Sunday. I wonder if he will support measure V, hopefully not, and how he feels about the police and their pay increase, should other services be displaced Huell? Maybe he can do something about those boarded up buildings in the downtown?
There will be a big party where you can meet him and ask him all those questions and maybe get on TV! The culmination of a whole year of parties, no wonder there has been no time to do anything productive!
If you are there at 4:30 you can be part of the "All community Photo" that will be taken. I hope they check I.D. to make sure that no non Sierra Madreans are included in that picture, that just wouldn't be fair now, would it!
Hmmmm.... I think he is a little cuter than Enid, no offense intended mayor.

Well it looks as if the Throw Away has another edition on the street. Of course the potential initiative that will be on the ballot, and discussion on the Ham-Hock Finance committee is front page news. *Seriously* I do not understand how this community can expect to retain the level of services we have for Library, Recreation, Seniors, Youth, Safety, and give the cops a raise, with out increasing taxes.
Where else will the money come from? No big revenue source will suddenly appear unless a Walmart gets built in the downtown. Maybe a Walmart that features Taylor's fine meats.
So get real people. Pay for what you get, be thankful this community continues to have the level of fine services we have. And if you think there is waste in the coffers, then you run for City Council and find it.
The Throw Away also dissected legal fees the city has spent this year. We are lucky we spend as little as we do on Attorney fees, with all the crazies incurring legal costs for everything, Measure V, 1 Carter, Stonehouse. Maybe one of the overpaid attorney's who live in town should "volunteer" their legal services for the City so we can save some dollars. Now that is the spirit of volunteerism that this City was built on!
Speaking of volunteers, one of our own Canyonites, Ted Saraf was honored with the Chiefs Special Award for outstanding to duty or service. Way to go Ted! By the way, he also started our neighborhood watch up in the Canyon. Keeps all the bad guys away.
