|As the Kersting Turns.|
Though referred to as an "apology letter" at Tuesday evening's confab, it doesn't really fit that definition in my opinion. Rather it appears to be an attempt to assign at least some of the responsibility for those unfortunate and largely unexplained response delays on the City Council itself. You know, for perhaps not quite having their act together yet? Not the smoothest move a city employee can make.
This note had been sent out by the Public Works Department previous to Tuesday night's City Council meeting, and apparently laid out the direction city staff was hoping the conversation would take. As we saw, things didn't quite work out as they'd hoped. Instead this unhappy strategy crashed and burned rather nicely as the Council's deliberations turned more on actual service complaints than dunning nearly all city residents for perceived water misuse. With the whole invasive and obviously revenue driven "EENER Strategy" being almost completely ignored.
If you weren't there, you missed some grand entertainment.
