Second winter storm hits hard

Corruption abounds! Look around Basehor at 4PM on election day and you will see that the only neighborhoods cleared out are those who support Fuhrer Breuer. Falcon Lakes completely clear. Old Basehor not touched. Last week with much more snow and no election the entire city was cleared by sundown.

City wants more applicants for city administrator

David is not "officially" involved in the day to day management of Suburban Water. His company, KC Construction specializes in underground construction ie utility installation - sewer water lines etc.

If he does not currently a registered owner of Suburban he is a potential owner by future inheritance.

Without access to heavy duty investigation capability it is impossible to see which Breuers own what and when. Their lead holding ID is probably the Breuhaven Trust, but a few minutes on the KSSOS site will turn up more than 20 registrations with a Breuer connection. They move assets between companies very often.

The KS Corporation Commission does have investigators and some of Suburban's abuses are detailed in the final orders from the last two rate cases 11-SUBW-448-RTS & 12-SUBW-359-RTS.

Mayoral forum gets heated

Fact Check:

Travis Miles is a nephew of David Breuer's sister-in-law. Miles is employed by Suburban Water Company which is owned by the Breuer family. His boss is David Breuer's brother, Mike. Miles is also the nephew of former Mayor Terry Hill's wife.

With David Breuer as Mayor and Travis Miles as President of Council and so many Breuer related businesses almost continually having business either before council or with the city, the perceptions and appearances which are bound to surface dictate that one or the other should remove himself from city government.

Former police officer sues city of Basehor, alleging wrongful termination

The arbitrator in the Pierce vs Edwardsville deal was Dr. Anthony L. Redwood former executive director of the former KU Institute for Public Policy and Business Research. This is now the Institute for Policy and Social Research - the renaming a rare example of Moscow on the Kaw changing a name to admit their bias rather than covering it up.

He has masqueraded as a "neutral" abritrator. What normally happens is that the union side will propose Marxists for the first name or two to push the employer into accepting an everyday progressive socialist as "neutral" and the best their ever going to get the union to agree to.

Former police officer sues city of Basehor, alleging wrongful termination

JohninBasehor, Basehorresident22: Stop with the personal insults and attacks. If you have verifiable information to add to the conversation, do so. Otherwise back under your rock please.

Pierce was fired by Edwardsville probably as collateral damage - he was caught with the porn thing during a corruption investigation that led to the dismissal of three other officers. He got his job back with a union action FOP - a year later. If you have any experience with union dismissal arbitration you know that they are pretty well fixed so that employees win over 90% of the time.

Basehor in its wisdom hired him while he was still under the dismissal cloud.

What does it mean that this has been moved to Federal Court? It probably means that the city and insurer will settle - Federal Courts have loser pays. If Cory's attorney took this on contingency he would avoid the Federal Court like the plague unless he was pretty confident.

Former police officer sues city of Basehor, alleging wrongful termination

Three questions: Why was this not reported by the Sentinel when it was filed a month ago rather than waiting until one of the defendants was paid off?
Why is the city going to court on this and settled the other claim?
If the city is found liable and Loughry at fault, will he return his ill gotten gains?

Basehor council considering sewer fee break for multi-unit buildings

Here we go again in Breuerville. Council said in February that Country Living Place, a Breuer project, should pay the same connection fees as anyone else. Looks like King David thinks we have short memories. Agenda Item 4 on the August 6th Work Session has the following:

"The proposed 79,863 Sq. Ft. or 22 unit Country Place Living facilities is currently required to pay $3,450 for each unit and would total $75,900. If the Sq. Ft. price is introduced at $0.30 per Sq. Ft. the cost for the sewer connection would be $23,958.50 which is a difference of $51,941.50 from the current required connection fee."

City Council rejected a demand by the Breuers to reduce the connection fees on this property by a 5 - 0 vote on February 27th.

I recall in his opposition statement that evening Mr. Washington stating that if Hill were retained and Mertz and Dysart were recalled, that it would only be a matter of time until the Breuers would be back to continue their theft from the taxpaying and rate paying citizens of Basehor.

It won't be on Monday's agenda probably because this $50,000 gift from sewer rate payers on top of the obscene grift of $200,000 to the document altering, resume misrepresenting former administrator is even too much for Gauleiter Brüer to jackboot onto our suffering citizens.

Look for it next month or whenever next our gaze is elsewhere.

Basehor City Council special meeting and work session agenda: Aug. 6

Here we go again in Breuerville. Council said in February that Country Living Place, a Breuer project, should pay the same connection fees as anyone else. Looks like King David thinks we have short memories. Agenda Item 4 on tonight's Work Session has the following:

Well here it is.

Suburban Water Company agrees to lower rates, stop purchases of personal items for employees

Ms Christopher was careful in her comments, however, the Kansas Corporation Commission in its official documents was much more direct.

In paragraph 53 of the KCC ORDER ON APPLICATION(Docket No. 11-SUBW-448-RTS) datestamped 2011.06.03 10:04:00 the Commission states: "The Commission is disturbed by evidence in the record showing that Suburban mislead the Commission and its Staff...and committed perjury..."

The heading just above paragraph 53 also tells a lot:

F. Due to misleading representations by Suburban's management, this Commission
must examine Suburban's ability to fulfill obligations under its Certificate of Convenience.

I have the worst of all possible worlds - I'm a Suburban customer and a Basehor citizen now ruled by a Breuer with another Suburban executive on the council. Kind of makes you think when you look around and see that the city is now being run with the same lack of transparency that has been the hallmark of Suburban Water.
