Thank you for sharing this Erin. Well done and very respectful.
Remember the smoking ban and those "exceptions"? How did Pete arrive at 10,000 sq ft as the cutoff? Save the taxpayers the court costs of litigating this feel good green attempt and follow the mayor and work with business.
Some racist jokes or infanticide, tough choices for the University.
Why doesn't the World Herald post the judicial system gaffs at VOTING time?No info? Vote them all out. Not sure why anyone holds a high opinion of a judge.
What Jackie Reacher said is spot on! Of course city officials say "it's working'. Gee, they don't have a bias do they? Before we were annexed, Douglas County did the snow and did a great job. I would say the World Herald's poor job of investigating is right in line with the city…
Let's hope the city council and mayor do a better job at hiring these contractors then they did with the snow removal contractors. The aggravating part is when you get poor service but still get hammered with the same taxes. Remember the poor job done on Fort street between 120th and …
Interesting since Omaha gave a monopoly to Cox from the beginning. True competition scares some, others welcome the opportunity. Remember the breakup of the old Ma Bell?
Jeff Hicks is spot on, but don't forget the elected board members. They hold the final decision power. And the most recent election sends more "green" members to the board. I'll admit green is good, but how affordable is it? Won't be long before we all know.
With the NSP culture a complete mess when Pete took over, this is not a surprise. Like football, it takes time to get a department going in the right direction.
Back to Ralston, has anyone run all the numbers about agreeing to be annexed by Omaha? Yes, I get that Ralston is quaint and all that, but at what cost?
