Oh you dirty dogs. Trying to make yourselves look good & cover up the REAL truth. Did you forget we have proof of what you did? You don't think Jesse will be at the council meeting? Patting yourselves on the back for cronyism & nepotism? Tell us how your "friend" contractor from out of town who replaced all the local businesses was double billing! Tell us how he was using city equipment & city employees & how you left that cost out of your figures. Tell us how these jobs handed to him on a silver platter are shared with the ex street commissioner Hensley's brother. Tell us how your avg dig costs are now $7000 when the locals only billed $1500. Tell us how you were denying repairs for frivolous reasons purposely to make yourselves look good to hide the truth. Tell us how you were stealing customers and created a monopoly. Tell us who you're planning to use as a landscaping contractor. The ex Pemberton employees or some other in the friends and family plan? Tell us about your meetings at Mulligan's Bar with Hensley, Pemberton, Bass & Niezgodski. Tell us about the FBI and ISP investigation. Tell us why the records request response asking for the video of stolen equipment being returned to the city said "I am not authorized to release any records related to city equipment (per the ISP)" followed by ISP name & phone number.

Proposal would slash South Bend sewer insurance premiums

SOUTH BEND — City sewer customers may soon pay less for repairs under the city’s sewer insurance program.
A measure before the Common Council would lower the deductible for covered repairs from $500 to $250.
In addition, the city would cover in-kind replacement of landscaping, sprinkler and hard surface improvements up to $1,000.
Currently, customers shoulder those costs alone.
The council will consider the measure on Monday.
The city in recent years has implemented new policies and procedures for administering the insurance program.
Notably, it has tried to clean instead of replace sewer lines when possible, reducing program costs and contributing to a surplus in the sewer insurance fund.
Currently, the formerly stressed fund retains a cash balance of about $1.5 million, Public Works Director Eric Horvath said.
“In past years, we were spending a lot more money than we were generating in revenue, and so we were subsidizing the fund with other funds,” Horvath said. “In recent years, it’s been the opposite.”
The proposed measure is an attempt to pass those savings onto customers and, at the same time, offer improved benefits.
“The whole point is to try to make it a friendlier program and one that serves residents better,” Horvath said.
The sewer insurance program helps pay for “lateral” repairs, between a home and the main sewer line in the street, by a private contractor.
Those repairs can cost upward of $10,000, Horvath said, depending on the nature of the work, and involve extensive excavation.
Cleaning a lateral, by comparison, costs about $250.
The sewer insurance program is a mandatory program benefiting residential customers only. It costs $1.18 per month, applied to all residential sewer bills.

Where does the FBI and ISP probe stand??? This has been a pretty quiet topic! Hey, shouldn't we have an answer for the Kathryn Roos investigation by now too?

Ahh, yes grasshoppers. ;) The one who brought this all to FBI & ISP in the 1st place can confirm action. It IS quiet from the "transparent" admins end, but not all things are as they appear. Ask Pemberton who escorted him out of the building on the day of the triple ahem "resignation". :think: The authorities were given an ant mound of information, but are now continuously & deeply chasing the mountain. It keeps growing, but is alive and well in progress, albeit slowly. :clap: Also, have a look in the tribune today. The Roos issue will not be allowed to slip thru the cracks either. :naughty:

Hoosier mama...thanks for the info. I did read the article. Is the "misuse" of the county property what most people would call theft of property returned to the doorstep in the middle of the night?

P.s. Hoosier mama...I once used one of the contractors you mentioned. It ended with me calling the bbb. Contractor offered to negotiate with me if I would drop the complaint...no dice. Smarter than him...crazy bit not stupid. Make your shoddy work right and no need for a complaint.

Out my money, but not all is lost... I now work for them! I am the best p.r. Person they never wanted. I tell everyone to run as far as they can from them!!!!! Umm ever hear that saying "hell hath no fury?"
