Not sure how many of you noticed at the council meeting when Mr. Muskat said that after speaking out at the council meeting about the flooding and demanding an answer after waiting 8 months Shortly after that ccm he received a letter from the city stating that the city was not going to be settling any claims.. I would like to take all of you back to a previous council meeting sometime after the flooding event. When the lawyer who is handling the claims sat at the council table and told the residents that he recommends that they do not sign on to any lawsuits against the city because that will cause more problems and that the residents should work with the city. The city was willing to work with the residents to settle claims.. You were asked to give you address and name to the Assistant Mayor and please they said report all flooding issues even if you are not going to file a claim we need to know every address that flooded in the city.. I wonder how many people decided not to follow through with a lawsuit and try to work with the city to settle their claims. Only to be hit right between the eyes with guess what guys the city is not going to work with you on any claim we are not going to settle anything.. Talk about getting the wind knocked out of you. Nice job administration nice way to con your residents nice way to once again show them why they should never believe one word that comes out of your mouth.. How much has the city paid out in lawyer fees so far?
Mr. Muskat spoke again at the March 22 2011 meeting he was very mad yelling at the council for not having answers yelling that they are trying to hide something, letting them all know that he holds them all accountable including the council. The council sad to say has nothing to do with what or how the administration (the Mayor) is treating the residents. The only thing the council could do was vote to approve spending 109,000.00 of taxpayer money for a study. A study that we paid for, but guess what guys we can not see it because you guessed it might interfere with the lawsuit. Well the only way this would interfere with the lawsuits is if the city was at fault for the flooding.. Mr. Muskat can not even find out if this “Gate” that has been brought up was open or closed. Closed would be my guess that is why the water was going nowhere. Who controls the “Gate” where is this “Gate” who has to push the dam button to open the mysterious “Gate”? All questions that we will not get answers to for sure.
