I fully support the idea for a monument for all veterans. But this thing has gotten outa hand. No point in re hashing how bad the location is, but I want to know who is in charge. The cost is 250% of the estimate. Who misses by that much? Bob Simmons says it is too hot to pour concrete, but they pour it every day. Better hurry, cuz soon it will be too cold. He says that they under estimated the lights. Madisonville has one of the best electric departments in the state. I guarantee they would NOT have underestimated this. If Simmons is in charge, he should step down. Hire a contractor at this point and they will be done within a couple weeks. Gas station on north main was demolished and rebuilt in 2 months. Oasis was built in 3 months. The bill keeps getting hiring because the party in charge is not a builder and has no concept. The longer you string a job out the more it costs. Get someone to get a plan, hire a contractor, and get it done. This is an embarassment to the community and the veterans. If Bob Simmons doesnt admit it and step down, vote him out. And anyone else who makes excuses.

We need a new park, we need a fat woman on a leash, we need Kim K to rub our organ, we need a hottie to spread like margarine, we need a ho to blow, we need a government program...

As you know,I'm not one to insult folks,but if it were someone else speaking,they'de say that it was a scam and pockets are being lined.

I say myself...I don't know.

Normally I would say, follow the money trail, and you will have you're answer. But in this case it could be pure stupidity.

I dont think its money. I think they are in over their heads. What has the Mayor himself built, Simmons, or anyone else on that "committee". And I dont care if they pay, but people are paying. They are pleading on people to support the veterans, and thats great, but they are not being responsible. People should halt all donations until they decide to get someone involved who can do it. I wish the veterans organizations would speak up... but it is typical, noone wants to go against the big boy.

Wasn't it supposed to be done by Memorial Day? Now they say Veteran's Day but that is also questionable. Day Lily park used to be pretty, but they have made a real mess out of it. I am not a builder, but I think I could have done it faster and cheaper myself.

They had a great idea. I will give them that. After that, it went downhill. It does appear to be nice. The thing that makes me mad is the constant spin. We arent using City money....oh yeah we are but we hope to pay it back. We couldnt estimate the lights....but, we have the best electric department around. Donna be done by Memorial, no July 4, no Veterans day.....sike, I didnt say what year. We have delays....because....Its hot, noooo, its cold....no...its windy.....,
but the Number One Blunder..."it's within the moving budget"
