Where is the budget Mr. Warne?

I thought it was time to let the public know what we as citizens are dealing with when it comes to Mr. Warne and to be honest with you what our elected leaders are having to deal with.

I think it was in September or October  I saw council-member Klink and I mentioned to him that the city website still had the non-approved version of the city budget on the site. As you may recall that was the 430 page bloated and incomprehensible budget that the council rejected. The council then directed Mr. Warne to come back with a more readable version which was done and was approved in the August early September time frame.

I went to the city website today and guess what is still not posted? Yes sir, the approved budget. Now Mr. Warne was quick to take the old non-approved version down when council-member Klink reminded him that he had the wrong budget out for the public to view but he sure has disregarded council-member Klink’s guidance to publish the correct budget.

So, I guess I will be forced to attend the next council meeting and again ask some questions and see if Mr. Warne will wish to continue to embarrass council-member Klink by simply not doing what he was asked to do.

I can see that 2013 is going to be a banner year.

  1. Well it didn’t take very long for the city manager to have Rutan & Tucker reject a request for public records in the manager’s possession. The response came back as classified — a public record created by the city manager presumably on city time.

    The response came back as classified — a public record created by the city manager presumably on city time. That denial came in the form of a letter, replete with Points and authorities citing case law.

    It seems to me Rutan & Tucker is covering his backside.

    I’ll bet that letter of denial cost at least $3,000, and it seems to argue that such request was privilege information — much like an attorney or doctors privileged to withhold info.

    That is classic Papa – how did you do that? Upside down is right and no funding for a Fire Department to boot.
