We are stewards of the taxpayer’s dollar,” Dawson said. “While the administration truly appreciates the (presence) of Conn-Selmer, we have to look out for the best interests of the taxpayers.”



Now that's rich.

"Despite the errors, the responsibility of the payment should fall with those who use the service, Dawson said."

Didnt Mayor (Spend) Moore forgive a huge debt that the RV Hall Of Fame had???? Just saying.

"City policy allows for back billing for under-reported readings and Arvis Dawson, a member of the board of works, pointed out that the customers should have noticed a difference that extended for several years."

And so should have the city noticed their decrease in revenue from this customer.  Government usually wants to place the responsibility on their wards and take none onto themselves.  But the ultimate responsibility is on the provider of the service as they have all the power and legalisms on their side of the equation.

Mayor's assistant?  Board of Works member?  Do I hear conflict of interest?  Where are the checks and balances?

How can one be a steward of the money when it is clear the City does not manage accounts receivable very well nor manages accounts.  Clearly computer programs can spot an increase or decrease in usage by 5-10%.  Telling the customer to manage the account???  Better inform Sears, Lowes, and other companies of the new strategy.  Let us know if you underpaid or our transaction was incorrect.

 So what I hear you saying is, your dumba** didn't catch it for several years so now your going to make it the fault of the customer. Stay classy Dawson, well played. Blink
