According to the Mayor, “City Hall is a buzz waiting to see what you Council are going to be giving up from your salary.”
This is what the Mayor said a few weeks ago to the council during a study session. According to those that were there Councilwoman Horvath said, “when I ran for this seat I did not even know a salary come’s with it so if you want it Mr. Mayor go ahead and take it.” This man has no shame he would make a statement like this to the council whom by the way did not even come near this office budget. This council did not ask the Mayor to give up even 1% and they should have. This council did not take one dollar away from his total office budget and they should have. Instead of humbly keeping his mouth shut he looks at them and ask them what they are going to be giving up.
Well they do not want to say it so I will “What did you give up Mr. Mayor?” Oh that’s right the budget is approved as is and you did not give up one penny. While Mayor’s in surrounding communities have taken cuts, you look to the people who are making $9,000.00 a year to sit on the council to give up from their salary. You have a car that is paid for by the taxpayers a cell phone that is paid for by the city. You live in a rented home so you pay no taxes to our city while every one of the council members owns a home and pays taxes to the city. They do not get city cars, they do not get a cell phone stipends they are very simply serving their community.
