Re: “Utilities employees get a lift from ratepayers

Pam - You throw out the inflammatory statement of "a $2,000 expense funded by ratepayers" as if that's outrageous and unreasonable. You do realize that everything CSU employees do on the clock just performing their jobs is funded by ratepayers. In the private sector, that's called the cost of doing business. I imagine the cost of putting fuel in all those CSU vehicles is quite steep, but is that unreasonable? And, by the way, I'm sure the majority of CSU employees are also ratepayers. Columnists like you like to paint a "citizens vs. city employees" picture when, in fact, most city employees are also rate-paying, tax-paying citizens themselves.

Re: “City councilor wonders: Where's a cop when you need one?

Maybe Councilor Collins should address the residents of her district about preventing crime themselves. They should take some responsibility and be active citizens in the safety of their own community. The police can't be everywhere.
