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

This is very disturbing to see. To think they were atempting to raise our rates when they have actually been over charging us all along! If I were to under pay for any amount of time, I am sure I would get a bill in the mail. Can I expect to see a refund? I won't hold my breath.

Basehor City Council gives employees pay bump

Spend it on emergency you say? Who the hell do you think shows up at your house when you have an emergency?! It's not Jim, Iris, or Dennis! It's our officers that we just gave a raise! If you don't pay them a respectable wage..... THEY LEAVE! Then we have to spend time and money to hire replacements, educate new officers at a several week long academy approximately 3 hours away (all while being paid by us) and, train in the city while riding with another officer (again being paid by us). That is a lot of time and money to devote to a person, when as soon as they are finished with the academy that we paid them through, they are highly covitted by several agencies across the state! Then we start all over again when they leave for better pay! So why not just give our current already trained and certified officers a raise? If you don't like it, next time you have an emergency, call Jim or Iris! See how fast they get there!

Basehor City Council gives employees pay bump

I am one of those voters who first voted for the recall. I also support the raises for the city employees.They deserve to be taken care of for the many years they have taken care of us. I sleep very well with my family feeling safe at night knowing that our officers sre out protecting my family instead of tucking their own children into bed.Thank You ALL city employees. Congratulations on your raises! Hope it goes to good use.

Basehor City Council eyeing pay bump for employees

Yes it does say that! However you said in your original post that chief's salary was nearly $100k. Your chart says employee cost! Your twisting words in attempt to make people look bad.

Basehor City Council eyeing pay bump for employees

Gross salary is not the same as employee cost Dennis! You know that. You chose to say chief grossed nearly $100,000 in attempt to make him look bad. You are a liar! Plain and simple. You attempt to make others look bad because you made yourself look bad and got recalled!

Lr... If you want to ask the city questions, why not go to the council meeting and ask? This is not a q and a forum for the city. Your questions seem legit and dignified.... But I doubt people here including me can answer them. Why not go straight to the source?

Just because I wanna see what lie you come up with now..... Dennis, where did you come up with those numbers for chief that were so obviously fabricated? I applaud chief for setting things straight. Dennis there is a lot of land and/or homes for sale farther west in kansas. They may not know your reputation! You could be a mayor!

Well the one time I somewhat agree with deniis he was telling a lie. I should have known Dennis could't tell the truth, he never could! Dennis this is why you were recalled! Your all about trying to get attention instead of doing any good for anybody. I feel dumb for believing you! I do stand by my comment of the PD doing a great job. Thank you all including Chief, and good luck to all of you with your raises, I will support that anytime.

I have to say I agree with Mertz for the most part. I have strongly disagreed with him in the past but he is right here. The officers deserve the money. Granted this is not the busiest city in kansas, but the danger is always there. Danger or no Danger, these officers work long inconvenient hours including nights, weekends, and holidays. Not saying chief does't work hard because I'm sure he does but he isn't the one out there at midnight in sub-zero weather or on christmas morning instead of being with family. Keep up the good work Basehor PD. I feel very safe in my city and thank you for that.

Basehor City Council work session agenda: July 2

How dare these people try to get money for their families! (Sarcasm) Abouttime.....Are your telling me that you would not try to get a raise at your job if you thought it was possible? I would be more concerned if an employee wasn't trying to make more money. I wish all of the Basehor employees the best of luck with their raises and look forward to hearing how it all turns out. I am also glad that they were able to get 100% health care. I appreciate the work our city employees do and am willing to help them any way I can!
