    Better check with the city council as to where the electric power went? They might have given it to the ex mayor, joe Vadella, along with a 20,300 back tax forgiveness.
    Homeowners struggle to keep their homes, and the city forgives a commercial business venture, 20,300 in taxes. What is going on??? Then they will cry they need more money for school teachers.
