ER #3

City Hall Elevator Rumblings #3

Rider #1: I think we are about to set a record.

Rider #2: What record is that?

Rider #1: You know. The most consecutive tax rate hikes for Water and Sewer rates in the history of the city. Just watch. The proposed 3% rate hike will slide through this budget while the “muppets” debate what color to paint city water towers.

Rider #2: You’re right! I guess our new Strategic Plan - Goal #11 is starting to pay off. Strategy #13 of the Goal states: "If you put enough words and figures on a sheet of paper, a politico is confused into acceptance."

A note from counsel: These “candid” elevator conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles.
