So let me get this straight – our recent spring and summer, with mild temperatures and beautiful days perfect for tourism and outdoor adventures, is to blame for EPB not having funds for necessary projects?
So we shouldn’t blame the “Gig”-generated $500-plus million debt burden that Chattanooga rate-payers are carrying for the next few decades? We shouldn’t blame the “necessary service that allowed us to match Hong Kong” that will cost Chattanoogans more than half a billion dollars?
No? It’s the sun? And mild temperatures? Oh, good. I was afraid EPB had invested poorly by pumping $500-million into an Internet service that had only four customers.
Silly me. I am glad Mr. DePriest set the record straight and clarified that the sun is to blame, not Mr. DePriest’s bad decision-making.
