County Commissioner Stephenson Rips the Co. Council's Ass

  Clark Co. Commissioner Rick Stephenson used the internet and the Clark Co. Chatter to rip the County Council's collective asses last night. Seems as if in a last minute move the Council moved money earmarked for bridge repair into a general fund without prior informing the Commissioners of the move. Mr. Stephenson was rightfully upset about the lack of communication between the two bodies of County government. The words cowardice and the council's lack of knowledge on how to run a budget were used in Mr. Stephenson's scathing remarks....

 We here in Jeffersonville are fully aware of how lack of communication and mistrust between different bodies of government can have devastating repercussions for residents and taxpayers. We here at the BatBlog applaud Mr. Stephenson for his public , open reprimand of the Council...it seems to already have resulted in promises of more open dialogue between the two parties involved. Maybe Jeffersonville mayor Mike Moore should tear out this page of Commissioner Stephenson's playbook and go on the Chatter or the BatBlog and rip the collective asses of the Jeffersonville City Council...

***note*** Mr. Stephenson was also upset the Council rejected the Commissioner's request for raises for Highway dept. workers who have gone without raise for quite some time now....

Final Word on the Hotel Plan Nixed by City Council...

    I have lived close  to and in Jeffersonville for nearly 60 years and I know there has never been ANYTHING near the 10th St. entrance to the City. I mean NOTHING other an an old used car lot for years, and the stench of the old sewer treatment plant. Finally after all these years of NOTHING ...a plan was conceived, the property purchased, to precede with a nice Holiday Inn complex, also included would be a Starbucks coffee franchise along with a couple more fast food restaurants.

 Keep in mind there has been absolutely NOTHING at the entrance to the City... EVER. So what happens, a few of the local City Council puts together their pea sized brains and decides to block the development by refusing to rezone the properties involved. The Council members who voted against the rezoning never took into consideration this was a smart, attractive feature for the City on a site where NOTHING has ever been, and that most citizens and taxpayers were excited about and approved of the idea. No once again this was about political back stabbing a mayor several members can't stand and a mayor they the council has battled and nitpicked with since day one.

 It doesn't matter about what the people want or the progress of the City and our area to these Council members...It's all about political posturing, chest beating and trying to improve their self image. Their self imposed sense of importance is channeled by lies, cowardice  and deceit. Claiming they were left out of the process by being ignored for meetings that damaged their fragile but self absorbing egos. Yes lies about no meetings, yet admitting having met personally with developer on at least two separate occasions. Even after having met, the 2 councilmen were too cowardly and spineless to tell him they planned to veto the project, because they couldn't have their say so.

Then the ultimate lie saying to the public it was about fast food restaurants and traffic concerns. It's about time for a couple of these Council members to grow some balls, man up and tell us what it really is about politics clear and simple....the public doesn't buy the lies and once again progress is put on the back burner by these small men and women with their self exaggerated sense of importance and worth...Yes these small men and women will try keep the Jeffersonville entry like it is... NOTHING... all in the name of politics and their wounded egos....

Fund Raiser for Goliath ....

 

It looks like Goliath has let his domain name gawnews.com lapse. The BatBlog will be  conducting  a fundraiser in order to help the Big G. bring GAWNEWS back to the internet.  Tentatively the dinner, fund raiser, and street dance will be held in the parking lot of Mick's Lounge...A chicken dinner followed by games, booths and a late night street dance....Features include a "pin the tail on the donkey(jackass)" game,
kissing booth, photo booth and other various games and booths. We are looking at a lot of the local politicians and dignitaries to appear donate their time for this event. Potential entries for "Pin the Tail on the Donkey (jackass)" include several members of the City Council and NHBSM...


We are just in the early planning stages of  this event so if you have any other ideas to help Big G. out submit them here to the BatBlog...

Not So Fast...McDonalds Comes to Jeffersonville

 
Looks like the idiots on the City Council who blocked the 10th St. hotel development didn't do their homework. Citing traffic and fast food restaurants as their reason for blocking the development, the City CouncilClowns will be happy to know that Ronald Mc Donald and the golden arches will be there anyway on property already rezoned. I'm sure the council members are huddled together putting their collective bird brains together on how to block ole Ronald from the gateway to the City....

 While McDonalds gets a bad rap on their menu (some deserved) it is still hugely popular and a lot of people will be happy with the addition. To the City Council the BatBlog thinks you should embrace Ronald and "have it your way" at McDonalds....

Side note*** It's a shame NHBSM did all that ciphering on predicting traffic patterns in the area in question over on the Clark County Chatter...word on the street is NH (Not Honest) will be pushing mayoral candidate Julius for Traffic director in his potential administration....

Same Old Political BS Stops Progress Again and Again and Again....

  The political games continue in Jeffersonville as the City Council/ Zoning board refused to rezone parcels of land at the main 10th Street entrance to the city needed to make a proposed 12 million dollar hotel investment reality. The council who has dragged it's feet on this proposal from the beginning citing at first sewer issues, but when they were resolved now claim concerns about traffic and fast food restaurants as the reasons for denying the required zoning changes.

Stopping the progress of development in a key area of the City is bad enough, but a couple of the idiots (Zastawny and Samuels) on the Council's claim of traffic concerns and the inclusion of fast food restaurants for the reasons behind their no votes on the rezoning is laughable and an insult to the intelligence of the voters and citizens of Jeffersonville....We all know it's about politics ....stupid.
What could have been, but stopped because of politics...

Another key development pushed forward by current Mayor Mike Moore would be a political plum moving forward into an election year and the Council with their own candidate (Julius) wants no part of making Moore look good at any cost including halting completely a multi million dollar investment.

 If the Council is all of a sudden concerned about traffic congestion, why not do something about the terrible gridlock on Holman and Allison Lns. It's a disaster, 5 times worse than the intersection in question of the project site. And seriously fast food restaurants holding it up...I believe a Starbucks was one of those mentioned as being part of the development and Starbucks is an upscale, popular franchise which is actually needed and would be popular here locally...

  I am disappointed and surprised in Samuels and Lisa Gill they at times have shown signs of thinking on their own and not following the political lead of the 4 Stooges on the Council (Sellers, Ed Z., Smith and Julius) but then again I'm not surprised at all this is Jeff and Clark Co. where politics trumps all including progress and doing what is best for the residents here..

It would just be nice if they (Council) would just tell the truth one time and admit it's all about politics and not feed us a line of BS. The bull shit reasoning not only makes you look foolish but also.....rather stupid.
