Re: “After fleet, city will turn to the Fire Department for more savings

revelations in last year.
budget had gone up for fleet services.
local parts suppliers are being supplanted by suppliers from other states or city's.
(supporting jobs in those areas with our tax dollars) .
council had Serco employee on it.
Serco tried to run fleet of fire trucks in California nd was given the boot shortly afte.
Serco ran Dallas fleet and was booted after a short while
memorial health is exploding costs due to pera silly ness.

more than I can say here many many things have proven to be not as they seemed.

Re: “More pension tension

so will we get third lawsuit for the city fleet Pera staff that were kicked to the curb? or did the memorial deal teach them the way to skirt any obligation. glad to see the myopic mayor moving along with stunningly brilliant decisions. so even if c4c could work the origin of it and the people pushing it seem to be inept. can we just push pause and look at every single decision he has made before implementing policy that will cost far more than it saves, at every turn he looses money to lawsuits or offshoring!! see you tube "Serco the biggest company you have never heard of " they run our fleet, and an aspect of Obama care.... wonder if Bach even looked at the company before accepting bids.

Re: “UPDATE: PERA lawsuit? Don't blame me, mayor says

When outsourcing the fleet Bach and Laura stated savings on Pera as the main driver . the calculations were made with great care and the very smart staff tallied the savings on paper. Ignoring the jobs effect of millions of local dollars going to British company rather than support local jobs. previously city fleet dollars strived to be all locally spent dollars supporting jobs and building local business which pays taxes.
looking at c4c they calculate local business revenue and local tax revenue to justify it. It's means to an end math every time with this guy. they throw out the 8th best fleet in the country to save 2 million dollars . While paying 8 million dollars to settle a lawsuit relating to the out sourced transit department. the city obligation to a Pera employee ends when they retire they are then Pera's problem. The difference between social security payments and Pera payment is a few percent. out sourcing and then getting sued and loosing millions in settlement dollars is a foolhardy way to save 6% on payroll costs.........
soon he will be out of office and begin building city for champions stuff with a developer friend then we will see why he plays chess so poorly its to setup up the board for when he is on the other side.
