04/16/2019 A Voice From the Gallery

Tuesday, April 9, 2019-At 2:50 p.m. Mayor Glas returned on a run, rushing into the Finance Office announcing to Finance Officer Jurrens,

“you were right”.  Mayor Glas continued to report that 300 East Fourth Street was OMG, “shingling their roof…there was not building permit…HE KNOWS BETTER!” 

Finance Officer Jurrens picked up her phone (not the fancy one with all manner of bells and whistles a salesman brought in that morning which she will no doubt pitch to the city council, she just has to have it or she cannot function without it!) and called the roofing contractor, left a message for him, “…to contact her right away…!”

Monday, April 15, 2019- Election Update-Canvass the Votes from April 9 Election

During Public Input last evening I presented the Finance Officer with a FOIA, I presented the council with a property maintenance code violation complaint on Anderson Street, I commented on any payment of comp time stating ‘it was not applicable to Finance Officer Pat Jurrens’, I questioned the Chip Seal, Road Guy bid which was not fulfilled in 2018, contract/agreement time frame extended in September 2018 and attempted to change the terms and conditions last night and finally I questioned the Executive Session for Personnel in how many applicants for the auditorium custodian position (? nobody knew), how many applicants for the golf groundskeeper position (2 and rumor has it mayor glas is one of the applicants) and how many applicants for the summer reading assistant position (1).

Perhaps the city of Alcester should adopt ordinance to the effect that, “anyone who intentionally tampers with infrastructure faces up to five years in prison and $10,000.00 fine…”


The definition of infrastructure is the basic facilities and installations…including roads…”

So Mayor Glas, you and Finance Officer Jurrens appeared on April 9, 2019, to be vindictively gleeful in threatening a citation for an alleged failure to obtain a building permit for a roof repair job.  Mayor Glas and Finance Officer Jurrens, here you go.  This individual deliberately vandalized public property, I and the rest of the city wait upon the issuance of a citation and fine to make this portion of  Anderson Street whole again!
