Re: “Still flowing

This should send a message to the Police , Fire and the other city employees who are taking a hit by council on furloughs, that they don't rate in the eyes of City Council . It is not fair to pick out some City workers and give them special favor . The tax payer pays all the salaries on these people at the Utilities the same way the collected taxes pay for Police , Fire and the rest of the City workers . I think when the tax payer gets the bills from the Utilities and see the electric rates are up and at the first of the year the water rates will be raised too and many of the people of Colorado Springs out of work , barely making it and then there are the fees that will be added from the Utilities to cover the increase in the salaries of the Utilities are being raised on the backs of the same people that pay all the City Workers . There should not be any favorites in the City . I hope other people will see this news and act on this . Lets stop the Specials People treatment . All City workers should be treated the same . The Honor paid to this department (Utilities )is amazing . I think all of the people who hold this city together are great people . Our Police work long hours in all kind of Weather and the job is dangerous , Our Fire Department , take care of fires . They work all types of long hours , when we have fires . Our City workers , also work long hours , they have had to cut back on personal and are doing the work of more that two people to accomplish the work that is keeping the city running . Where is the Praise for all of these people ??? These workers are being blamed for all the tax shortages . NO ONE can make the taxes rise to meet the demands of this City . The people spend the money and in a good economy they spend and in this down turn they are afraid to spend and some don't have it to spend . It is not these peoples fault but it is being treated like that . I hope when the Utility Bill comes in you will remember it is your money that has fattened the checks of the workers in the favored department .
