The city of Lodi is hungry for power - electric power, that is.

Leaders hope a new transmission line will help satisfy that need, creating greater capacity and reliability for the juice that flows to the city's homes, stores and factories.

    Hey GetUrHeadOut, while underground would be more reliable, the cost to build it would be enormous. You have to make it accessible for repair and maintenance. If the City is counting on someone else to build it, they have to take what they can get.

    There is no reason the new line can not go under ground!

    Ernie, those are the same wineries that didn't want to go downtown, and the city council again cut a sweet deal for them, paid for by us Lodi taxpayers. Call Mr. King and ask him what kind of deal they made. I believe it was something like $25,000 or more package deal. I watched it on the videocast of the council meeting. The good old boys never forget one another.

    And with some of the highest utility and electric rates in the country they should be trying to save us money, not put us further into debt. Why are they spending LEUD money on ground pollution and building up the city's cash reserves, after paying the bills? We need a complete overhaul how our money is bungled around from department to department and Ms. Mounce's new accounting plan would be a great idea and should be implemented immediately.

    We do need to spend money updating and repairing our electrical delivery system and hiring the needed personnel at LEUD. If they say they don't have money to hire those unfilled jobs that are needed, what justifies them wasting it elsewhere first? Why are we spending over 10 million on a plant for the NCPA? Aren't we paying them enough now to put up with Hansen at their meetings? Get him away from the LEUD's business and let Mr. Morrow attend those meetings. Morrow knows his stuff and shouldn't be bothered by rookies like Hitchcock and Hansen.

    T&C, did you notice that the line no longer runs next to the 2 major wineries on Hwy 12.... the same 2 wineries who are in downtown Lodi pouring their wine at the Cellar Door. Gee, ever wonder how that line got moved?

    Now this will be a classic case of bullying, one of opinion's topics this week. Hitchcock sticking her nose into LEUD again? Wasn't her and Hansen that bankrupted Lodi with their last decision to buy that power for half what it was worth? Hansen and Hitchcock, stay out of LEUD and let Mr. Morrow do his job. He's the amn and the expert to consult and make the decisions, not you two wannabes. "
