Re: “City Councilman Pico opposes refugees moving here

The article is not correct. The resolution did not propose banning refugees from coming to Colorado Springs, it requested that the city be notified and that the refugees be screened for security.

Re: “Suthers plays defense on tax hike

Rocky Smith, the funds were spent on the road maintenance projects they were allocated for.

Yes, the PPRTA site was hacked and is temporarily down.

Yes, all funds in the proposed sales tax can be contracted out and spent on road maintenance, none of it will be diverted to anything else.

This has nothing to do with C4C.

The Council is certainly not "packed" with C4C members. I remain committed to your vote prior to any TIF zone or any other way of spending your money. Only the stadium would require any such funding.

Re: “Suthers plays defense on tax hike

Liberty for COS, I did check on those funds. The projects were not completed so the funds were allocated but pending disbursement, however you want to phrase it.

Those funds were spent on project completion.

There are no funds not spent. Period.

Re: “Suthers plays defense on tax hike

liberty for cos, that's not true.
Each year at the end of the year there are projects which are not yet completed and the funds for those not yet expended. The fund are carried over into the next year. Those projects are completed and the funds expended in the months following.
There is no cumulative amount of funding that has not been spent. That balance is zero.

Re: “UPDATE: City Council limits communication with media

Well said, Bill. I have never used my personal email for business. Anything that comes in a personal email, I forward to the city email so that everything is on the city system and available for CORA requests.

I will always try to respond to media inquiries.

Re: “NORAD returns to Cheyenne Mountain bunker, sorta

It is interesting seeing this come full circle. Brings back a lot of memories.
