What's the rush? Why not focus on stopping the commissioner's from the lucrative, wasteful spending? Why doesn't the council seriously put an end to the madness?
Exactly I agree with Anon 9:45am what is the RUSH? Plainfield wake up you will see what's going on here. Why don't Plainfield residents encourage the PMUA commissioner's to do a open NATIONAL serach so they can get someone in here that will not be controlled by anyone.
The PMUA should be shutdown. According to Mr. Cory STorch, the PMUA has forgeotten their mission. NO DUH SHERLOCK! They were supposed to be cost effective. If they didn't have the forced services fee, they would have been OUT OF BUSINESS a long time ago. The council absolutely has a way to save each property owner over $500 per year PLUS a way to make payments on the over $22 million that the PMUA has racked up. They handle garbage and sewer yet they have been borrowing and wasting money for years. I encourage the council members to do what's right for property owners. Take a stand and tell the PMUA we have had enough!
In 6 months Duane Young has proven to be a asset to reforming the PMUA. A NATIONAL search will only allow the new commisioners time to select an ED that in all likelyhood will not be as good as Mr. Young. Remember, you know what you have but you don't know what you might get.
To the anonymous commenter: I will urge my colleague to check for comments.Rebecca
At non 8:13 - as we have seen from the past, the ED is not who runs things at the PMUA. No director could reign in the excesses at the PMUA. I agree with some of the comments. The only way to reign the PMUA in is to shut them down.
