    Joe Biden wears a Rolex (class) but does not golf, thereby saving taxpayers $144 million over four years.

    While President Joe Biden is talking about “unity and compromise,” the leftist machine is still obsessing over Trump (by design) and demonizing and silencing his supporters.

    Leftists don’t want unity and compromise. They want total control and submission.

    Biden is pretending with one hand that he is unifying and compromising while using his other to misrepresent and vilify Trump’s record.

    Biden’s actions are not in the spirit of compromise, and they will damage the United States, not undo damage.

      A rampaging pandemic gets the actual kudos for the cleaner air. You commented earlier and bragged that Trump gutted environmental protection rules, so he gets no credit at all, even in your book.

      Trump started this recession, particularly hard on Iowa where he destroyed the ethanol industry. Thousands of jobs lost when the plants closed. Then he ignored the pandemic until it was out of control and now it’s killed more than 400,000 people. All of our current problems are Trump’s fault, period.

    Trump’s presidency was a job apocalypse not just for fossil fuels, but for renewables.

    477,862 clean energy jobs lost as of September, a 13.8 percent drop in employment.

    (And renewables still employ far more people than fossil fuels)

    As a staunch Democrat I can say I found a flaw in Biden’s plans. I do not agree with automatically sending money per child to families every month. A big no. I would agree with sending one payment a year (before school starts) to help with school clothes and supplies, but not a set amount every damned month. That gives each family FAR more than FIP gives out- which comes with big demands by the state in order to get FIP. I think this wild idea was pushed by the far-left rather than mulled over wisely.

    C’mon, I’m a parent of two boys. The cost to care for them wasn’t a huge jump over the cost to care for myself until it came to school needs.

        I paid daycare. Of course back then it wasn’t anywhere near as high. At the time the state of Iowa had a program that helped or did pay childcare if you qualified. I’m sure program that still exists. So it all boils down to whether you can afford to pay it on your own or get state help- there aren’t a lot of excuses to use to use child care as a bash against me. At least I make a point to tell young mothers about the program when they talk about childcare.

    City Hall January 14, 2021
    Mason City, Iowa 6:00 P.M.

    MINUTES
    COUNCIL WORKSESSION

    The City Council of the City of Mason City, Iowa, met in Worksession pursuant to law and rules of said Council, in the 2nd Floor Conference Room of City Hall at 6:00 P.M., on January 21, 2021. The meeting was held via Zoom and called to order by the Mayor and on roll being called, there were present, Mayor in the Chair Schickel and the following Council Members: Lee, Jaszewski, Thoma, Masson, Adams, Symonds. Absent: None.

    Administrator Burnett provided an introduction.

    Capital improvements by fund yearly comparison: Jacobson highlighted the Capital Improvements Fund by yearly comparison. The funds included Local Option Sales Tax, GO Bonds, Road Use Tax, Storm Sewer, Water, Sewer, Sanitation and Ambulance.

    General Projects Fund: Jacobson provided a review of the General Projects Fund, advising it was pretty straight forward, noting two projects were done each year (computer replacement and miscellaneous equipment replacement) and one was identified through the goal setting (Housing Market Study). He mentioned the City was also leasing vehicles so that money needed to be allocated and the carpeting at the Museum was moved into the General Projects fund.

    Discussion followed regarding Museum carpeting, Housing Study, Ambulance purchase, etc.

    Sanitation Fund: Jacobson stated staff made a decision to move a replacement vehicle from 2023 to 2022. He also stated there needed to be a monthly increase of $0.35 over a five year period to get the fund where it needed to be.

    Burnett stressed the $12.00 rate was a bargain when looking at other communities, pointing out it was very competitive.

    Discussion followed regarding leased vehicles.

    Water Fund: Jacobson discussed various projects proposed in the fund and referenced the Water Main Replacement Program, advising the idea was to start looking at ways to maintain the water mains. He also pointed out the City would be retiring the debt on the Water Treatment Plant by fiscal year 2023. The rate increase was projected at 1.00% and that would help with Operating. Jacobson also commented on bonding and advised there was revenue debt, but all revenues from that Fund paid the debt.

    Sewer Fund: Jacobson reviewed the projects included in the fund and explained how staff was trying to methodically build (increase) rates so the impact to the citizens wouldn’t be as large when it came time to start the Nutrient Reduction project, noting staff was maintaining some reserves for that and approximately $700,000 was set aside to help offset some of that in the future.

    Discussion followed regarding collection maintenance.

    Burnett explained staff was working really hard to keep that rate low while still trying to balance out getting some projects done.

    Local Option Sales and Service Tax: Jacobson stated Local Option was coming in solid from what was collected last year, adding there was a dip, but now it was solid. He reviewed other projects and also noted Engineering had the River Walk Project and within that was carry over and grant money to help pay for that $950,000 project. He commented the sunset was 2023 and stressed the importance of moving forward and getting information out to the public in 2022.

    Mayor Schickel asked if $950,000 was the total for the Riverwalk with Burnett stating it was not and provided information regarding the various funding sources stating total was $1.25 million

    Discussion followed regarding the High Line Trail and moving the Pavement Marking Project.

    Road Use Tax Fund: Jacobson highlighted the projects and explained staff was trying to maintain the bonding so as not to raise rates or make the debt too high, pointing out vehicle replacement was reduced by $50,000 and noted there was $59,000 in LOST that was not allocated and would transfer into Road Use. In addition, he commented on bonding, advising right now the Council was looking at $1,650,000 and emphasized the importance of making sure the items included in the bonding were indeed an asset.

    G.O. Bonds: Jacobson reviewed the 5 year Capital Improvement Projects, advising the largest project was the RCR skywalk. He also stated the debt issued in FY 21 calculated into a $.08 decrease in the Debt Service Levy.

    Discussion followed regarding the $75,000 for masonry restoration at City Hall and patrol videos.

    Outside Funding Sources: Jacobson stated the items in blue were TIF funded and a few projects had grant money as the primary funding source, but stressed if the revenues did not come in, the projects would not happen. He pointed out there were several large projects at the Airport, but the CARES Act funding would virtually pay for all those projects. In addition he mentioned there would be a rate increase in Internal Services which was something that hadn’t happened for several years.

    Discussion followed regarding the Airport lagoon and minor terminal changes.

    Conclusion: Jacobson stated there were $42 million in project and he thought it was a good plan. The following increases would apply for Enterprise Funds:

    Water $0.29
    Sewer $0.47
    Sanitation $0.35
    Storm Sewer –
    Projected monthly increase for average user (500 CF) $1.11
    Yearly increase $13.32

    Burnett stated what staff had presented allowed the City to achieve what it needed to without postponing what needed to be done and stressed it was a low, responsible proposal.

    Discussion followed regarding keeping rates at a steady increase for Nutrient Reduction Project and maintenance and keeping the impact low due to COVID.

    The Mayor adjourned the meeting at 7:43 P.M.

    In the past two days, there have been more indications that members of the Trump administration were behind the January 6 coup attempt. Yesterday, Richard Lardner and Michelle R. Smith of the Associated Press broke the story that, far from being a grassroots rally, the event of January 6 that led to the storming of the Capitol was organized and staffed by members of Trump’s presidential campaign team. These staffers have since tried to distance themselves from it, deleting their social media accounts and refusing to answer questions from reporters.

    Mike Anthony New York, NY · January 2017
    Two amazing things are happening this weekend. Two things that are the hope of the world. First, after a historically contentious election, two people will shake hands, as one leaves behind the power of the executive branch of the United States, and the next takes up the mantle. There will not be a single tank in the streets. No military will need be on hand to oust the previous administration. It will be done in peace. And even with good will. It will be done for the sacred idea that is America. This is a miraculous thing, friends. Only mere hundreds of years ago, such an occurrence would have been thought impossible. That the fear and greed and ego we are stuffed so full of would have given way to reason, humanism and altruism. Back then, once the feeling of power had settled into a person, it latched on with an iron tight grip. And it’s not just “back then.” This remains the case today, all over the world. But not here. Here, in America, the best in us has overcome the worst. George Washington “taught us how to say goodbye,” in peace, and we have done it that way ever since. Though we disagree intensely with the incoming president, and will remain ever vigilant over the course of his term, the way he will be inaugurated is, nonetheless, and maybe more so, a miracle. And a beacon of hope for the world.
    The second thing that will happen is that millions of us, the very next day, will peacefully take to the streets to express our profound displeasure with who we elected. We will be free to do this. It is our right. It is enshrined in our constitution. And, again, billions of people, all over the world, will marvel at what is possible in America.
    And the day after that, we put our collective shoulders to the wheel to ensure that America remains the hope of the world.

    The traitor in chief, bonespurs, wants a military send-off. Red carpet, military band, 21 gun salute. Kind of weird for a draft dodger. What a hypocrite POS.

          Deferments for college are not “dodging the draft”. His medical deferment was for asthma. That could be considered dodging the draft just as imaginary bone spurs are. What branch did you serve in?

          If he gets convicted, he can’t run again. It doesn’t really matter because he will either be in jail, on the run in a foreign country-I would bet North Korea but maybe Russia, or he will be dead – he would be 78 in 2024. His mind is already going and in 4 years he will be lucky if he can feed himself.

        I provided the actual documentation from the fed gov’t on how impeachment works… you know, how the House acts as a kind of grand jury that weighs circumstances and weighs and votes on impeachment after hearings and then the Senate is required by law to hold the actual trial to “convict” or not… odd how these really smart people attacking the process and love rule of law ignore that…

      “WAS HE EVER REMOVED FROM OFFICE WHICH IMPEACHMENT MEANS”

      FACT CHECK: No, impeachment means the House found a preponderance of evidence, voted and approved impeachment. The Senate then holds a trial. If convicted, removed from office and prevented from holding office again.

    Well we believe the 2022 elections for senate/ house are NEXT YEAR – and maybe you misread – only a sitting president can be impeached and once leaving office in 4 days the constitution says the senate can not take a vote because he’s out of public office – and by the way let’s get this straight – he was never impeached (means has to leave office)ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT were filed against him -you know for 4 years on lies by the dimwits – not proven first time and will be not proven this time. Those old founding fathers were great patriots EH !

      tRump was impeached. You cannot lie your way out of facts but you people keep doing it over and over, as if repeating it will convince anyone except yourself.

      He did manage to get himself impeached twice- first pResident to achieve such a notorious achievement. Again, you cannot deny facts but I know you will.

      New Senate and new majority leader, in case you missed the headlines. He will be tried starting likely end of this month, doesn’t mean conviction, but GOP wants him gone forever so there is a chance. Oh… and there are no elections for nearly 2 years.
