— Watching the House Impeachment Debate this afternoon. —


**   Art Morris addressed city council again last night during the public comment period over the increased water and sewer rates and said they are very difficult for poor people to pay.
     And he said this, in part:
     There were comments made that, well, if people can save the amount of water they use they can drop the bill. Really? I mean really? There was an editorial on this in the newspaper because the city made that comment. It came out of, I think, the mayor’s office or Patrick saying one way we could do this is if people use less water.
     The truth of the matter is – you could reduce the amount of water but it wouldn’t reduce your bill much because the city has to get so much money to pay for employees.



Randy Patterson, Chris Delfs

*    Former Mayor Art Morris addressed city council last night about two recent hires – Chris Delfs who began as Lancaster’s Director of Community Planning and Economic Development on July 8th of this year and Stephen Campbell who will be the city’s Director of Public Works beginning in January.
      Morris discussed gaps in their resumes and regarding Delfs stated the following (click here for the video):
     The city seemed to acknowledge this gap when they retained Randy Patterson who previously had the job and retired from this position. They retained him as a consultant. His 12 month agreement is to provide consulting services to assist operations of this department.
     His hourly rate is $125 an hour for 10 to 15 hours a week for the length of 12 months. This would be $32,500 for five hours per week. It would be $65,000 for 10 hours a week and it would be $97,500 for 15 hours to assist the person who is budgeted to earn $146,795 in 2020.
     I don’t know the amount being billed but it would be good to know. When Randy Patterson was an employee, he did not need assistance and was paid almost the same as the position currently pays.



Click here and here for the two LNP articles above.
      Yes, as expected, city council unanimously increased all the fees on the agenda last night and the only person to complain was former Mayor Art Morris and he also slammed an LNP editorial. He also questioned two of the city’s recent hires and gave some shocking information on Randy Patterson who supposedly retired. April Koppenhaver was also at the meeting and she thanked the fire fighters who fought the fire in her Mulberry Art Studio building last Wednesday and also spoke against the proposed Ewell Plaza artwork and proposed a plan. There will be more on that later today.
    And DA Stedman, soon to be a Lancaster County Judge, is wasting even more of the public’s money. Unbelievable! And there is a murder case that needs to be examined before he is sworn in as a judge.
Please check back later today.

    Back in a previous time of severe water shortage someone came up with a novel idea–put a brick in your bladder. Hope this helps.

    What no one at the city is admitting is that the maw fiasco is a huge driver of these water and sewer rate increases. Most of the funding came from the water fund as the Maw network was going to save money working in conjunction with the new meters.

    This is why the suburbs aren’t seeing nearly the same rate hike. They’re rates are regulated by the PUC. City residents only protection from mismanaged water funds is city council. And city council is doing all the residents a major disservice by not digging into these rate increases and holding hacks like pat Hopkins accountable.

    I read that as “useless” rather than Use Less.

    I hope the new d-a uses a Giglio list instead of sucking up to all the lying cops in Lancaster County like Steadman walking did. But then they’d have to overturn half of his cases.

    Did Corrupt Craig Stedman pay back the money he stole by double dipping for gas and mileage while on the campaign trail…or is it okay that he did that since he’s a judge now? Does he have to drive his own car to work from now on?

    Unfortunately once you are out of power in Lancaster, you are viewed at best as a novelty. At worst, you did the dirty work of your print media overlords, they spit you out and no one even remembers your name. Right Merv? Er, Marv?

    New FREE water meter mandatory. Gigantic red flag. I can’t wait to see what the city comes up with next to bleed us dry. Maybe a fee for public art. Buckle up, it’s gonna be a wild ride.

    I believe that our new free water meters have the absolute capability of making our water consumption what the city decides for maximum income for them. I do not believe the nonsense that they are to notify us of leaks or any other propaganda that the city pushed when the new free water meters were MANDATORY !! I have no doubt that there is sophisticated software involved that the city can manipulate any thing they so desire regarding water and sewer consumption.
