Re: “Council says no to parks ballot issue

... The City Council long-term has proven pathetic at maintaining city infrastructure whether it is the parks or roads. In the 1970's 1980's and early 1990's the roads and parks were properly maintained with the existing budgets. Our corrupt Council would then drain funds from those two groups - claim to the citizens "Were Broke" and beg for tax increases to cover for them subsidizing developer interests. Our developers/development fees are 70% LESS than the average of the other front range cities. Raise the development fees to be equal to our neighboring cities, fund stormwater with that and leave the parks/road maintenance budgets alone. This council is corrupt to the interests of developers....Let's see how much infrastructure costs they pass to the citizens for the Banning Lewis Ranch/Jenkins development !!

Re: “UPDATE: Strawberry Fields controversy continues

Dear Mr Mayor, In case you haven't noticed this ENTIRE country is sick of the favors done for billionaires on the backs of the working people. You are acting like a WHORE for the Bully at the Broadmoor Anshutz....did he promise you a job in his company after you leave city hall ... tell us we'll understand. Anschutz did not make Colorado Springs the city it is, he did not even have a hand in the first CENTURY at the Broadmoor. He is a bully manipulating you like a piece of spaghetti. It's time for you to represent the PEOPLE OF COLORADO SPRINGS whom made this city great , instead of one unneedy billionaire screwing us for more money. Wake up Suthers, you're adding to an unbalanced Oligarchy !!

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

...... AND our corrupt CSU along with Anshutz puppet Mayor Suthers wants to GIVE a RESERVOIR to the Broadmoor to water their Golf Courses, while golf is declining nationally. Rosemont Reservoir is 2541 Acre feet, could easily be hooked up to the Mesa treatment plant to create another potable water supply for us. Thornton pays from $15,000 to $25,000 per acre foot for water. Let's see how corrupt CSU and Suthers are giving our assets (Rosemont Reservoir and Strawberry Fields ) to "THE BULLY OF THE BROADMOOR" , greedy Anshutz !! Watch the documentary "Killing the Colorado" to see how CSU killed the town of Crowley CO .
