Rogers’ Comments After Election Victory

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Joe RogersFirst of all I would like to thank everyone that participated in the runoff election today. I want to thank all the people that worked so hard for me and supported me. This vote of confidence is very humbling and I will do my very best to represent all the people of Monticello.

We are facing some major challenges here in Monticello with the water issue. This is a very important and expensive issue facing us and we need to meet this with unity of purpose and insure that the best interests of all the citizens of Monticello are best served. I will work with the city council, the municipal league and our attorney to insure the best resolution of this situation.

The door of the mayor’s office will always be open. I invite your opinion and I need your continued support in the days and weeks ahead.

Happy Birthday

Siemens History of Complaints & Lawsuits, as Documented on the Web

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Following Thursday night’s City Council meeting, with some questions being answered, and many more not being answered; it seems that the internet was a popular plance for many local residents to go and search for Siemens’ (the company who is intalling our new water meters and will install an estimated 45-93 miles of underground water lines) history.  Many of those who did so, forwareded their information to MLive.

Wikipedia describes Siemens in several aspects, including their contoversial history, as shown here.

Listed below are some of the other credible, documented allegation about Siemens.
Siemens in McComb, MS – Federal Court to hear Meter Lawsuit
Siemens in Jackson, MS – “Water Meters Still Worry Council Members”
Siemens Facing Pending Lawsuits in Chicago for Water System Failure
Siemens Facing Lawsuit in Sacramento
Siemens Paid $1.34 Billion in Fines – New York Times

Although these only cover a few of the wide range of products and services that Siemens offer, there is certainly enough “smoke” to be looking for “fires” to erupt.
