While reading this week’s Star I was disgusted to see the water issue, yet again. To flip the page and see the town of Stevi has 4 (that’s four), new reserve officers. So the town is going to rape residents who don’t have the money to pay for water as it is, with new rates, AND add more officers and whatever health care they choose plus all other town employees at 450 bucks a pop without a hitch. After reading the star four more times, I found no weekly crime report indicating that we need 3 regular pay officers, 4 reserve officers, whichever three Sheriff’s are in the valley for the evening plus state patrol. Oh, and a DUI task force to harass citizens that choose to OBEY the law and WALK home. REALLY? Has Stevensville, Montana become a new boot camp regime? Where no crime report means it is necessary to pay for more officers instead of paying for the water bill they owe the bank? Almost sounds like Washington? And where and when are those town meetings being held and why aren’t they on the front page where the town can see them in 48 point font? Also… an appeals board would be nice to know about… The town of Stevensville should be requesting an appeal and voicing objection at the ludicrous going ons. 7+ officers and a water tab, Shame on town hall. Who bought you?
