Hey – while you are gathering around the tree with a cup of cider in your face, the city of Chico is getting ready to stick it to you in 2018!

22 Dec

I got  the agenda for the January 2 2018 city council meeting


and here are some immediate observations:

  1. Looking at the police contract up for consideration, I see our cops are hugely overcompensated and given many perks and benies but are still demanding raises. While city mangler Mark Orme insists this contract will only cost $37 more per employee per year, he doesn’t give the figures and he doesn’t even mention how many employees the police department has.  I went to the State Controllers Government Compensation charts and I see cops in Chico make well over $100,000/year, plus nice benefits packages, and I’m wondering – how long can we afford salaries that compare with those in much bigger cities?


    2. They’re raising the cost of housing and other fees to pay for it.

    3.  The clerk isn’t posting city council minutes again. She’s only posted selected meetings since about July.  She constantly complains about not being able to use the equipment.  She just got a raise to more than cover her own pension share – which is less than 10 percent.  Presson’s salary is comparable to a police officer.  

Presson always includes a little personal note with the agenda – she wishes all of us and our families a great holiday season! Well, her Christmas, with that kind of salary, much be just ginchee! 

All I want for Christmas this year is for the CalPERS building to implode and collapse back into Hell where it came from.

As for Chico PD? I hope their kids all grow up and leave.  

As for the rest of you – make a resolution for 2018 to stop putting up with this shit.

    Mark Orme insists this contract will only cost $37 more per employee per year,..

    Orme is full of sh*t. But why shouldn’t he blow smoke up everyone’s ass like this? He sweet talked the council into a raise for himself and other bureaucrats when it is the last thing this corrupt little city can afford. The idiots on the council will believe anything he tells them.

    Speaking of sh*t, you see the Enterprise Wretched lately? Today they had a story of giving fake poop as a gift and in Little’s editorial he said we have to keep those gas, diesel and car registration tax increases so Highway 70 to be widened to 4 lanes. He actually thinks the money will go for that? You’d think that after covering corrupt politicians and governments all his adult life he would know better. Anyway, more examples of high journalistic standards from a paper that’s only use is to line bird cages.

      Thanks Bob, you have such a way of hitting the nail directly on the head. Orme needs to go. Little too.

        Yup, they gotta go! And that awful Heather Hacking. She put a picture of a big turd in her article today. I bet her readers just loved looking at that while eating their breakfast this morning.

        Hey, did you know, I used to have a Nor Cal blog until I used the f-word – I told a troll to “f-off” – Little cut me off so fast it made my head spin.

        He also used to take a hard line on marijuana – almost Reefer Madness mentality – until the publisher decided they should do the “Cannifornian” or whatever it is, now Little is practically pro-pot.

        You think you know somebody…

        You are far better off with your own blog. You don’t have to deal with Chicken Little.

        Most of those Nor Cal blogs are in active and I heard Little was going to get rid of them.
