Many concerned citizens have come before the Puyallup City Council requesting council members to consider budget savings ideas. One suggestion was to relocate the City Court to City Hall which would have saved thousands of tax dollars in rent cost. That was rejected.
Another suggested savings was not to provide funds to hire a search firm to find a new City manager, that too would have saved several thousands, especially since the interim City Manager was during an outstanding job. That too was rejected by the Mayor and several other council members .
It seems that some council members could care less about saving tax dollars as long as they have the power to raise taxes and /or lay off City employees. Come November, we the people will have our say to replace those who have ignored our opinions and place this City in a budget crises.
