Maybe if instead of sitting at home waiting for his constituents to call him he drove around his ward he might see there are houses in need of repair and that his constituents need help. And maybe he might figure out that being a city councilman is about serving everyone, not just the people who agree with him.
Thankful for mayor’shelp with problem
I just wanted to say what a positive experience I just had with the city of Logansport, specifically with Mayor Ted Franklin. I contacted him with a small problem and he helped me within a two-hour time frame to solve the problem.
I was trying to get four tires removed from my property on North Street that someone had dumped in my backyard. I really appreciate his speedy and helpful response to my problem. I am a Democrat, but I just might have to vote for Mr. Franklin, a Republican, in the next election as he is doing a good job to keep Logansport clean and crime-free.
Board owes the publican explanation
An open letter to the Utility Service Board and majority of the City Council:
You Board members, and majority of the City Council, have charted an ambiguous course for providing the City with electricity in the coming years.
You issued a Request for Proposals in early 2013 for electric generators using waste (trash) as the fuel, and you required prospective vendors to demonstrate that they had the capital to fund the project. The Utility Service Board’s published recommendation to the City Council, that the Memo of Understanding be awarded to Pyrolyzer, stated that Pyrolyzer had the funding. Then in December 2013, we learn that Pyrolyzer did not have the funding after all.
No one yet has taken responsibility for wasting time while LMU is losing a million dollars per year, wasting $1.5 million of taxpayers’ money on consultants, and wasting untold hours of the mayor’s and utility superintendent’s time devoted to this losing proposition.
