"SOLITARY MAN" neil diamond
Another item that arose at Mondays council meeting was that during the meeting councilman Flock asked for an electrical director to give a presentation on how Painesville arrives at our Power Factor (PF) or our Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) now to the city administration's credit as well as the electric department they are more than willing to honor this request. Now comes the rub. For a presentation on anything to be given at least FOUR council members must join together for the request.
Guess what, only councilman Flock who has requested the presentation was alone. With no other council people willing to call for a presentation. This is your city elected official's at work.
Maybe dropping a call or an Email to one of the other six might persuade others to make the request.
I wonder how this request would be viewed under councilman Fodor Strategic Planning? In my view it seems council should learn to walk before they run.
I guess I could understand like not wanting to send formal letters to state officials but why would anyone oppose themselves or the whole community not wanting to understand the process of our utility billing system?
When I asked at the council meeting why an electric fund had grown from $100,000 to over $3,700,000 in six years I received seven blank looks? Odd they voted on the budget and no one noticed or asked?
