Letter to the editor: Core belief

I think folks in town generally support the police. The failure of the police bond issue had more to do with the methodology and the failure to explore alternative plans as opposed to nonsupport for our men and women in blue.

Audit: City Hall has 'gaps' in process for economic development incentives

If markus has problems with Eglinski he could replace him. Sounds like he doesn't like the idea of a position which answers to the City Commission rather than the City Manager. I think you are reading too much into this.

Audit finds Lawrence City Hall not collecting some payments on deadline, or at all

the amount of time he has been here is irrelevant. He was hired based on his experience. His recommendation flies in the face of the obvious value the auditor's reports have been to the city. If Markus didn't have enough knowledge because of his short time here, then he simply should have refrained from making recommendations.

Audit: City Hall has 'gaps' in process for economic development incentives

In these cases, no incentives are provided until the project has been completed and annual performance is shown,” he said. “Staff believes that the analysis and due diligence should be commensurate with public risk.

Nonsense. All information, especially that of derogatory nature, is helpful in making a decision. Why should the city require less information than, for example, a traditional mortgage lender?

I like this Mike Eglinski guy. He appears competent, but more importantly, his role is not to protect any specific city official/officiaqls or department, but instead, the taxpayers. We need to keep him around.

Even if these discoveries are infrequent, a vigilant auditor pays for itself by keeping all the players honest.

After Mr. Markus wipes the egg off his face, it will be interesting to see whether he changes course on his recommendation to eliminate the auditor position.

The City isn't very good about collecting thousands of dollars owed by wealthy developers, but if a single mom working at Walmart for wages that barely exceed minimum wage is late making a $60 water payment, I can assure you her water will be turned off once that bill becomes sixty days delinquent.
