Incumbents approve $3,500 for fireworks when Town almost a HALF MILLION in new debt!
Again tonight at the regular meeting of the Quartzsite Town Council, the incumbents showed there blatant disregard for the monies entrusted to them by their constituents. Mayoral candidate Charlie Kukral addressed the council before the vote on the consent agenda to point out that we should not approve a $3,500 check for fireworks when we are struggling to pay around four million in debt with a half million deficit in revenues currently. When offered the suggestion of making a motion to remove that one item from the consent agenda payables, in order to discuss it further, the incumbents all sat silent. Those present voted unanimously to approve all checks before them. Jose Lizzarraga was absent from tonight's meeting but since the fireworks are for the fire department, it's not hard to guess how he may have voted...
