Was a one minute special on television news last night, on how Colton is shutting down certain city funded things due to no dollars in their budget. Mainly I think they are closing all the libraries and laying off employees.
yep that is what I read in the news this morning...
Their Assistant City Debt Creator is getting laid off with a separation package... The others are just likely to get a handshake and a thank you and perhaps not much more...
The union should have come back with a deal that Management that is paid over 100,000.00 per year take a 30 percent pay cut, People between 100,000, and 50,000 and 20 percent pay cut and the others a 10 percent pay cut... and then chunked the numbers. But hey what do I know?
Oh and Yes Fire the Assistant City Manager for Cause and don't pay him a separation bonus... The Cause, failure to keep the city out of financial trouble. Perhaps even worse reasons should apply. .
When the New City Manager gets on the job in Grand Terrace, she will want to know exactly where the City's Financials are so that none of the Prior Actions of the Schwab/Berry/ Harper and League of California Cities/ and the Real Estate Interests in GT have lead the financal status of GT. Expect to hear of "New" problems the "Council did not know about".
