When is this whole Utilities scandal going to be over? And why has he just been demoted? Is it beacause the ones that were fired were rehired?

I have a idea. Make the Utilities Supervisor the new $181,000 Environmental- Green Coordintor for the city! I'm sure this would be a pay raise and maybe the lawsuit would go away.
