Regardless of City Manager Rick Olsonís justification for the implementation of a city property tax and a hike in sales tax revenue, the fact still remains that there is an element of fraud conducted by and through the city of Page.
Olson takes pride in broadcasting that he is now the overseer of all the departments under the guise that it saves taxpayers the cost of department head salaries. He has placed himself in control of each position and in control of a one-man dictatorship that affects every man, woman and child in Page.
Sweeping the CAFR issue under the table by having an auditor justify the city books does not give the city manager a green light to move full-bore ahead, without certified, verification of the debt.
Local Government Investment Pools, also known as the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), are a major fraud conducted by and through virtually all municipalities and divisions thereof, counties and state at the expense of the people.
The investment pool(s) are taxes that have been collected and have been used to invest in the stock market and junk bonds, but not used for the lawful purpose intended.
May I remind you, city of Page officials, the powers delegated to a public officer are held in trust for the people and that any enterprise undertaken by the public official which tends to weaken public confidence and undermine the sense of security for individual rights is against public policy.
Use the monies in the local government investment pool to satisfy and discharge the city debt. If in doubt, look at the city of Page cash accounts and allocations, dated June 30, 2012.
Wake up people! Your take-home pay is being hijacked and diminished.
