Sunday Council Meet-and-Greet

A reader reminds us that this Sunday the Claremont City Council will be at the Farmers Market on 2nd St. between Yale Ave. and Indian Hill Blvd. in the Claremont Village. The councilmembers will be working in shifts at the city booth. So if you feel like chatting them up, about trash or anything else, check out the Farmers Market Sunday:

DATE: Thursday, October 2, 2008 1:22 PM
SUBJECT: Trashing the city
TO: Claremont Buzz

Thanks for posting the bait and switch (which is exactly what the city is doing) about the trash fees. I have talked to more than a few people who have said they read that letter from the city several times and finally threw it away because they thought it did not apply to them (residential rates). Your posting clearly shows that the city is trying to pull a fast one on the residents (what’s new?) but this time they have no leg to stand on. I often wonder if Council Members actually see these letters that are sent out in their names before they are sent out. If so, then they are all responsible and should take the proper corrective measures.

Residents have a chance to see them in person this Sunday at the Farmer’s Market in Claremont from 8am-1pm. It will be interesting to see how many of the Council Members show up and what excuses they have to justify this egregious error. I hope your readers confront them and post the Council Member’s responses on your blog. Once again, the INSIDER is doing the job that we should expect from our elected officials. BRAVO!
