It has been my greatest of life’s pleasure’s to have been married to two different redheads in my short lifetime. I suppose by some measures that makes me a slow learner. Oh well. That said, I learned a long time ago,don’t piss ‘em off. I guess that makes me smarter than some. If you missed the City Council meeting tonight that’s too bad. I must say that was the most exciting meeting I’ve been to in quite a while. The whole Tindel street thing was a bit boring and Councilman Fuller started off in a grand fashion but he petered out pretty quick. I mean if there’s no substance there’s just no substance. I even pledged bodily fluid if the Armageddon he preached came to pass. Not my own bodily fluid mind you understand but it sounded good. The best part was when our City Secretary decided she and her staff had had enough of the local bullshit. I’ll post the YouTube links when I get them but the short version is some of your elected officials pissed off the hired help and one of them is a red head. If they would have asked me I would have advised against it but…
Arlene didn’t stand a chance and for the first time in two years I wished Councilman Perkins was there. That would have made a show. My money was on the City Secretary. Karen You ROCK!! I, along with you am tired of these people calling us names and making all these baseless accusations. I say to them, you wanna dance? I’ll lead! There’s more than one lawsuit under way, you ready for your turn in the barrel? We’ve got your back hon, and anything I can do is yours for the asking! To the rest of our office staff, It was stated so well tonight, we have your back and when I say we, remember the crowd and subtract the 3 or 4 assholes, the rest of us are with you. If anyone would like to read the City Secretary’s complaint just say so and with her permission I will post it here.
Voting stuff-> pay attention!
Voting for this proposition will continue to provide about $180,000 per year in sales tax revenue to the City to help maintain our streets.
It is not a property tax and does not increase or decrease the property tax that our home owners pay – which is currently zero.
Voting against this proposition will discontinue this important revenue stream to the city.
It must be re-enacted every three years to retain the revenue that we are now collecting.
More important voting Stuff! PAY ATTENTION DAMMIT!
Please consider voting for the Kemah Volunteer Fire Department Fee increase. The wording on the ballot will indicate the ability to raise the rate to a total of $10 per month though we have no plans to set the fee over $7 for the foreseeable future. That will raise your water bill allotment for the Fire Department from $60 per year to $84 per year. The last fee increase was in 2003. Almost 10 years ago!
If you have any questions please check out the information posted on the website at www.kemahfire.com or c all Station 1 at (281) 538-5727.
The Overview and Rationale sheet posted to the website contains a cost and response comparison to a fully paid service in the area. It shows our areas coverage coming at quite a bargain. In addition, any increase in our ability to provide services could provide additional savings on homeowners insurance.
We have already taken some significant measures to decrease our expenditures including Fire Chief Hahn volunteering to cut his salary in half. The Fire Chief is the only paid member in the department. His offer which was accepted this year has not been reflected in the online documentation. Our department is also experiencing excellent growth in membership. In the last year we have recruited several paramedics, a 12 year veteran firefighter from up north, an industrial fire chief as well as a local fire marshal.
Please consider voting for the Kemah Volunteer Fire Department Fee increase. We have a strong and cost effective response. Additionally all expenditures are fully vetted through the Emergency Services Board which is comprised of area residents.
