Citizen to pay for your malfeasance and gross overspending – is that not illegal? Surely there is something illegal here, or was, or still is. Hey, let’s just ask around about that, you know, make some calls and whatnot. And if there’s not something “amiss in the loft,” then lets get someone other than a paid “consultant” to tell us everything is OK and all warm-and-fuzzy and so forth and that we should feel good about getting hosed.

Or will you continue the practice of turning off services and being severely rude and condescending to customers? Im so glad I just bought my first house in Wellington( note sarcasm). Can’t wait to be raped by the city of Wellington utility company.

I work 2 jobs, one full time and one part time, and still struggle to make ends meet at times. I am about to toss in the towel with this town. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad town to raise my children in but the cost of living is about to drive me out of it. Times are tough for many people and now we have the City of Wellington making it tougher. What happened to Live Well, Live Wellington? Report Reply 0 replies · active 253 weeks ago -34 Vote up Vote down sports parent · 253 weeks ago I think it is a good idea to pave the parking lot at Worden park and also feel they should consider paving the road to it also. I get so tired of paying to have my child play in sports at a nice complex only to have to drive on that crappy dirt road to get them there. It is impossible to keep your vehicle clean especially during soccer season w 2 practices and then games also during the week. It’s crazy considering how many parents, coaches, grandparents ect. use that little piece of road, it’s less than a mile long. Why not make it nice like the sports fields. How do you think the out of town people feel coming here and having to drive on that road to play their event. We have traveled all over Ks for sporting events and I have to say that road is the worst to get to the complex out of all of them. People pay good $ for their kids to play there for all the sports why not give them a decent road to get there on!!

As for the hospital if it closes, the town will melt…because people need immediate care and if they have to go out of town for a hospital, they will move closer to it.

Have them explain exactly when the problems started. Get rid of the austerity lovers who followed Brownbeck down the road of bankruptcy and vote in a progressive.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — As expected, the Wellington City Council made it official Tuesday night raising electric rates about 30 percent for most customers.The monthly meter charge is also going up from $10 to $17.75 for residential customers in the city and businesses will see their meter rate go from $15 to $30. (See full chart here). Gone are different summer and winter rates for usage. Residential customers were paying .043 cents per kilowatt per hour in winter and .052 cents in summer. The new rate will be .058 cents. Commercial customers will be paying .044 cents which is close to the winter rate of .043 and lower than the summer rate of .052.Out of town customers will also see a similar increase, from .062 in summer to .068 year round.The council passed the ordinance on a 5-1 vote with Jim Valentine casting the no vote.Council members have been discussing rate increases for more than a year, since a consultant told them they were in bad financial shape because of previous business practices. The city had been moving money from the utility fund to avoid raising property taxes, and also avoiding a rate increase. Those two things depleted reserves to the point the city was in trouble.The same situation was in place with the water and sewer departments, and those rates were raised a few months ago.City Council members said they were not happy about the increases, but they see no other way to repair the reserve fund and to get the city back on solid financial footing.“We got ourselves into a real mess. Our infrastructure is falling apart and we are still paying on the hospital. All of this has put us in a horrible situation,” councilman Vince Wetta said. “There is not one person up here that feels good about what we got to do.”He said the council has looked at different ways to fix the problems but none of them seemed good.Councilman Kip Etter said the council has had several work sessions.“This is something that has been coming down the road,” Etter said. “We have looked at numerous scenarios and none of us like this.”Etter said the city would be looking in depth at where they can save money.He said the council is not raising the rates to the levels the consultants suggested. Council member Jan Korte said she would like to start a fund of some kind where people could donate, and the city could then help people who are struggling to pay their bill. Details have not been worked out.Kevin Dodds addressed the council in the public participation section of the meeting, and said more study needed to be done.In other city council matters:•It approved to pay Andale Construction $33,000 for a system that will add concrete to the soil to help the base of roadways the city is working on. Public Works director Jeremy Jones explained the process lowers the cost of asphalt. One project that would have cost $16,000 was lowered to $10,000 as a result.•The city hopes to pave the parking lot at Worden Park at a cost of $75,000. Without this process that would only cover paving half the lot, but with it, they can do the entire thing. Valentine questioned the wisdom of spending money to pave a parking lot that is only used some of the year, while streets that are used daily are not being repaired.•Council members also talked briefly about a project going on, where streets are being evaluated. A report shows what needs to be done, and that will be used to develop a strategic plan. There will be a work session meeting at 5:30 p.m., Oct. 19 at the council chambers.•There will be a town hall meeting next Tuesday at 7 p.m., at the council chambers. •Chisholm Trail hotel owner Frank Johnson told the council his property repairs are coming along well. There has been some demolition work, and he is ready to seek bids for more repairs. He said his hotel is full, with a lot of workers from the windfarm project.About a year ago the city was threatening to shut the hotel down if safety concerns were not addressed. Much of that involved the balcony on the second floor.•It was also announced that the Fire Department beat the Police Department in the annual battle of the badges blood drive. The rotating trophy will now go to the fire department, and Police Chief Tracy Heath will cook dinner for the fire department.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
