ER #4

City Hall Elevator Rumblings #4

Rider #1: Well, the council meeting almost turned into a sideshow last night.

Rider #2: No kidding.

Rider #1: It looks like there will be no problem pulling off the Water and Sewer rate hikes.

Rider #2: Hello, new record for the most rate hikes in a row! We rule.

Rider #1: Now, if we can just parse enough words to keep those pesky Heritage Society folks off the trail, we can slide the sale of the property at O’Connor and Irving Blvd. past the council...even though there are no viable parties beating on our door to buy this tract.

Rider #2: Right. If we sell this piece of “surplus” property, we could have bankable bucks for another McDougal interest payment if needed down the road. Of course, we will need to tread lightly after we send out the bid documents to keep all our “interested” parties informed and nestled at the top of the list to pull this off.

Rider #1: Score another hit for the Lubbock Mafia.

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.
