Good news, your electrical rate has not gone up!

Friday, October 21, 2016 - by Craig Allen

The City council meeting this last Thursday, October 20th, 2016, covered an array of hot button topics which most all citizens would surely like to to see some resolution and action.

Included in the evening's discussions was a "Presentation" by Mr. Jackie Hammonds, who was a former city employee for nearly 30 years. Mr. Hammonds spoke for several minutes with most of his oratory concentrating on the condition of the streets. Coleman Connected will be releasing another video that covers the "streets" portion, as Mr. Hammonds does make some very interesting points.

The video below; however, is possibly more dear to many, as it centers around the utility rates here in Coleman and the fact, according to Mr. Catoe, that to the best of his knowledge, the only utility rate that has gone up since he has been city manager, is the water utility rate. This revelation caused a stir amongst the audience which eventually resulted in the question being presented point blank by Ms. LeMoine Knox an attorney here in Coleman.

The video is just over 6 minutes long cut from over an hour on this agenda item. If you are absolutely pressed for time, you can skip to the end to catch the rather tense moment that ensues as the question is asked and answered.

The video ends with a quote by Mr. Catoe that you must hear to believe.

  Highlights include: Mr. Catoe tells us that has far as he is aware, the only utility rate that has gone up in the last 5 years is the water utility.
