That should have been a giant
None of our elected representatives who are charged with watching out for the citizens on the council spoke out about this arrangement. But when conflict of interest is an everyday occurrence you get accustomed to it. Too bad, if there had been an independent assessment it would have been very hard to pull off the deal without raising questions about who was really benefiting.
Watch the disclosure below and the clear announcement by Mayor Bond about the conflict:
It is a monthly occurrence that the city sneaks something through without notifying the stakeholders and neighbors. Is anyone surprised that the city did not give a heads up to all the HOAs of the residents who will be taking on the direct burdens of the new ERGA/Ecke/City financial deal? This is standard practice and goes along with the city's policy of "Father knows best, so the citizens need not concern themselves with our activities."
