Doug Grimm said he lives in the Upper Rattlesnake on the west side of the creek and he wanted to talk about a couple of his neighbors who have passed away, Hal and Arlene Braun. When he visited him this spring at The Springs, Dr.
About 15 days later Mr. Grimm saw her obituary was in the paper and that was followed 10 days later by his obituary. About 20 years ago in the Missoulian there was an article about them and their conservation efforts. They had bought a piece of land outside the city that had a lot of forest on it and they had done some wonderful conservation things for it and was mentioned in the paper and described what they had done. The article described that their backyard, which the Rattlesnake Creek flows through and also through Mr. Grimm has lived there for 73 years.
The second year he lived there his job was to help, as his dad turned the shovelfuls of dirt over to take the rocks out, to put them in a bucket. Doug put three arrowhe in his pocket at that time. The Lodge had buildings that resembled Yellowstone Park or Glacier Park buildings and those burned down in The first owner of that Lot 5 was John Doss.
John was a gardener of that piece of property. Over the years that property finally came to Hal and Arlene Braun. And in the front yard, on the south side of the house, will have three houses built on it. The north side of the house, where their beautiful vegetable garden was, will have two houses built on it.
He thinks that garden area should be turned into a roundabout.
Where there was one house, there will now be six houses. He thinks Hal and Arlene would be broken hearted to see that happen. All of these must be swept aside. They must be ridiculed and defamed and every cure they advertise must be asserted a hoax. Just as in Russian we had to destroy, after many, many years of most arduous work, the Church, so we must destroy all faiths in nations marked for conquest. Insanity must be made to hound the footsteps of every priest and practitioner. His best must be turned to jabbering insanities no matter what means we have to use.
You need not care what effect you have upon the public. The effect you care about is the one upon officials. You must recruit every agency of the nation marked for slaughter into a foaming hatred of religious healing. You must suborn district attorneys and judges into an intense belief as fervent as an ancient faith in God that Christian Science or any other religious practice which might devote itself to mental healing is vicious, bad, insanity-causing, publicly hated and intolerable.
He knows his expenses will go up. He knows his property taxes will go up. He knows his buying power will only go down. He found out that Missoula was a more livable, vibrant and exciting town than when he left 20 years prior. When he came here the rumor was that in the winter time living in Missoula was like smoking a pack of Camels a day.
The ro had as big of potholes then as they do now. Sidewalks were not shoveled. To ride a bike through Malfunction-Junction was considered an extreme sport but this is a great town. This town deserves to have a good, fully funded budget.
It has grown and is very livable, in a large part because of people on the City Council who are committed to making this a good place to live. The parks, schools, police, fire department, the library, the bus system we have in this town, investment in affordable housing, urban renewal, and all of that creates a real dilemma for residents and taxpayers and elected officials because this is such a nice town, people want to come here.
They move here, they buy homes, they start businesses, they find jobs. Tourists come here. Missoula is a tourist destination now. He lives across the street from Playfair Park and he sees all the different plates from softball, Little League tournaments, the swim meets, and the tennis tournaments.
As the Council continues the budget process, continue to discuss things, continue to listen to people like him, all he asked is that from one senior citizen on a fixed income, living in this town that he loves, he asked that Council votes yes to the future of Missoula, yes to a livable, exciting, vibrant town and yes on a fully funded budget. Mayor Engen thanked Mr. Pinski and said we will have further budget comments and to hold those comments until we are actually in the budget portion of the agenda and said that was just fine and thanked him.
As I said, I leave it to the individual readers to make up their own minds if Noveske suffered a similar fate. On to the list of mass shooters and the stark link to psychotropic drugs. Eric Harris age 17 first on Zoloft then Luvox and Dylan Klebold aged 18 Columbine school shooting in Littleton, Coloradokilled 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves.
He then shot himself. Cory Bagaard, age 16, Wahluke Washington state High School, was on Paxil which caused him to have hallucinations when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event. Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac. Christopher Pittman, age 12, murdered both his grandparents while taking Zoloft. Mathew Miller, age 13, hung himself in his bedroom closet after taking Zoloft for 6 days.
Kip Kinkel, age 15, on Prozac and Ritalin shot his parents while they slept then went to school and opened fire killing 2 classmates and injuring 22 shortly after beginning Prozac treatment. Luke Woodham, age 16 Prozac killed his mother and then killed two students, wounding six others. A boy in Pocatello, ID Zoloft in had a Zoloft-induced seizure that caused an armed standoff at his school.
Mayor Engen said, thank you, Ms. Questions or comments from Councilmembers? Alderman Ramos said, thank you, Mayor Engen. Can you please divide the question so that we vote on item 5. Mayor Engen said, anyone in the audience care to comment on any of the items on the consent agenda?
They had 80 attendees. Their main topics included supporting the improvements to the First Street Pocket Park. They unanimously voted to apply for a neighborhood project large grant fund because they want to beautify Meet me for fun Missoula Montana and possible ltr area. They voted in six new members to their Leadership Team. It was decided a speed study would be conducted in that area. Laurie Davidson talked about the Villagio Affordability Housing Neighborhood Program that is potentially going to happen.
Leigh GriffingFinance Department, said, today I would just like to quickly walk through the budget resolutions that are required to be passed, to be able to pass our budget for FY First, we have an appropriations resolution. This is essentially what people think of when they think of the budget, passing the budget. This is the resolution that outlines the total casts and total sources and total uses of funds. We then need to pass a tax levy resolution which will actually allow us to levy those respective taxes.
Additionally, we have some fee resolutions that have built into the budget. There are three resolutions increasing certain fees by 3. This is what we did last year as well in order to just keep pace with some fees. This was approved by the Cemetery budget a few months ago. Fire had requested moving certain revenues into its own dedicated fund. That is in the new requests that City Council went through and reviewed during Budget Committee of the Whole. Thank you. Mayor Engen said, thank you. So, a little color, ladies and gentlemen. You all have seen my budget letter, the second round of which you received in light of our certified taxable values from the State of Montana.
The story of the fiscal year budget is that the considerable hard work that many people in this community have engaged in over the years with regard to planning and investment and making this place a great place to live, is showing dividends. Our tax base has increased and has increased dramatically this year.
This budget represents an investment in six new police officers for the City of Missoula to serve a growing population and increased calls for service. It also adds an administrative support person in that department who will help us follow up on misdemeanor crimes and other work. It supports the Internet Crimes Against Children Officer who spends her time engaged in tracking folks who are behaving nefariously online and affecting the lives of children.
And it does Meet me for fun Missoula Montana and possible ltr variety of other things. It funds an attorney in Mr. It funds a position in our Housing office that will allow us to execute that important plan to ensure that the folks we serve in generations to come have access to safe, affordable, decent housing.
And the budget does much more. It engages a couple of organizations in the sustainability work that you all have told me and members of this body over and over that matters to you. It also funds a position to assist in our Sustainability Office to help manage those contracts, those arrangements and the many plans we have to reduce the effects of climate change in our community and we hope our effort translates into a larger global effort.
This budget is good news. We will be doing all of that while lowering mills. This is confusing. In just about any community in the United States that would be good news. I tend to think of it as good news here as well. They have had tremendous success.
This is exciting. And with that, I will open the public hearing. If anybody would care to comment on the budget this evening. Leanna Walgren said, [off microphone] neighborhood over the past two years. Sorry about that.
And we just wanted to express our gratitude to City Council for including the completion of our playground in the budget and ask that you approve it. Do you want to say something? A huge thank you to them.
And we also just want to say thank you so much to Mirtha Becerra and Jordan Hess, our representatives, for helping us and Missoula Parks and Recreation Department and the Neighborhood Council for helping us. Thank you guys so much.Meet me for fun Missoula Montana and possible ltr
