          Who's 'Molly' and what should 'Molly' be asked?

          Maybe the Sentinel should ask 'Molly' if 'Molly" can answer questions about the city finances and spending.

          The tale that was used to sell the new, computer read water meters was that they would pay for themselves and actually increase revenues by more accurately measuring water use. What were the results of that? As I recall that additional recovery was supposed to be enough to forstall the need for a water rate increase.

          Why is the Comission not holding the City Manager responsible for these decisions? Or, did they? We don't really know because the Sentinel is not asking and the city is not telling. Why is the Sentinel not holding the City Commission responsible?

          Most of these articles are just newsletters from the city administration reprinted in the paper.

          Water rates had to go up because we still have to pay for those fancy water meters that Jeffers had installed.
