I have recently discovered a great source for local news, Decaturish.com and I have to say I am impressed. For example, I just read an article that actually informed me about real local news…
Low traffic – Avondale citation revenues come up short
Apparently, Avondale Estates 2013 revenue was short by $151,000! What is even more shocking is the 2 reasons they came up short:
- Deadbeat Traffic Criminals not paying up and instead opting for probation
- The officer who operates the License Plate Reader has resigned to pursue an education in a different field
Shame on you deadbeat traffic criminals! Don’t you know Avondale needs your revenue to fill in the budget gaps every year? It’s built right into the frickin’ budget!
And you are not going to get off the hook either, Avondale Estates Police department! Why isn’t every officer trained to use the License Plate reader? I don’t care if it’s a soul-less life-sucking job, you need to keep that traffic revenue flowing! We are counting on you! We need to collect every red cent out of those dangerous traffic criminals to maintain our Lame lifestyle here in the Estates!
And to the officer who decided to leave his important position as the License Plate Reader: What “different field” could be more rewarding than protecting us from traffic violators and providing so much needed revenue to our beloved Lame city?
I have a suggestion: Make all the deadbeat traffic renegades work for the city! They could be used for shoveling the city’s horse manure, digging ditches, collecting garbage and other brutish jobs. Shoot, they might even do a better job of managing the city and they would have to work for free!
Get it together, city officials!
