Just a citizen, ratepayer, and voter.
The place sucks!
Trump to media - Behave and be decent or get slapped down again. The media bullies earned what they got.
The Famous has one of the best filet mignons I have ever had. Quality meat and they know how to cook it. Can't beat it and the price is fair.
Hmmm, I smell a salary survey and pay increase coming. No other legitimate reason for new titles. They could at least be honest about it.
Maketa should be sued for the "$821,496 on settlements with employees or ex-employees, attorney fees, and consulting and investigation expenses stemming from claims related to Maketa", plus all legal costs incurred. He was in charge and the buck should stop with him. Hold him financially accountable. He was being paid to do the right thing and he did not perform to reasonable expectations.
Won't be voting for State Treasurer Walker Stapleton. He's been playing games to get the Governor job for years.
"the extra lane was making Research less safe"... what a bunch of bologna. Suddenly ending the third vehicle lane at Austin Bluffs (heading West on Research) and making that lane into a bike lane is what made it unsafe. Time to undo that really bad and poorly designed idea. There is a huge wide sidewalk on both sides of Research... change the law and use that for bikes and pedestrians instead. It is already there, and doesn't mess with vehicle traffic. Who feels safe riding a bike on the paved streets right next to speeding cars anyway? Not me.
Thanks Tom I just saw your reply. I guess I wasn't subscribed to the thread. I'm not sure I understand the $5.1B present value of Drake. Does that mean that's what we spend if we keep it going until 2035? If so, then the PV cost of the other option(s) is what that should be compared to.
I'm fairly sure replacement of 254MW will be in the $1B to $1.5B range (for firm reliable generation, not the undependable wind and solar stuff), but my City Council person tells me that it will only be a quarter of a billion and a 2% rate increase on average for 20 years. I'm not buying that. I think double or triple rate increase over the long term sounds more reasonable, not 48.6% (1.02^20). The last I knew, generating units cost about $2,000 to $3,000 per kW, and that was a long time ago. Those costs have not gone down. It will be incredibly expensive regardless of the generation type.
