  • The City of Marshall made a huge mistake this year! Should have cash rented their property.

  • You know Willie, I am inclined to agree with you.

    The investment, and deposit of municipal funds is by law always placed in the traditionally more secure locations. That is of course to minimize possibilities of loss. The accepted penalty for doing so is minimal increase in return.

    It would also behoove municipalities, whether compelled by law, or not, to treat income producing assets in the same prudent, conservative manner, and stay with the sure thing.

    If you can't ante up deposits for a crap shoot, you shouldn't be able to throw assets in a crap game. Farmers will be the first to tell you that farming is a crap shoot.

    Yeah Willie, they screwed up.

  • With "taxpayers" money...the City should take the low risk option!

  • Smart Dog - Cleaver is our congressman - since the re-districting took place. The 5th district inludes most of the KC metro area plus counties along the river as far as Saline County.

  • Yup you guys luckily fell in with a congressional representative that doesn't just sit around waiting for instruction from party elites before doing for, or saying anything to the people that are nominally those represented.

    It should open some eyes, and ease the majorities regret that Ike is gone.
