Century Sends ‘Entertainment Survey’ To Utility Customers

October 11, 2017

Town of Century utility customers received an “Entertainment Survey” with their utility bills this month, with little explanation as to why.

The survey asked respondents what type of event they would support, best day of the week, preferred type of music and for any requested group.

Century Mayor Henry Hawkins said he would simply “like to bring some good entertainment to town”.

“If other cities can do it, why can’t we provide something for our citizens?”, he said.

The survey is due back by October 15.

    What’s not funny is watching Century’s leadership act like the money purse is bottomless. And I don’t live in perfection. I’m just around the corner from reality.

    Chris, I know you live in the perfect place and wish you would lay off the negative Century comments but…….

    That one is FUnny.

    It probably has something to do with the concerts and wrestling entertainment being done in the industrial park at the helicopter building to *benefit the Town of Century.*

    They charged for the tickets and sold them at the town hall from what he flyers said in the past

    I thought it odd that would be done in a building, zoned industrial.

    Does it meet safety standards for a crowd? if something happens will the taxpayers be sued? via Town of century?

    Is the money put into an account that the town council and sees and applied back to the town or it is going in the Phoenix Community 501c non profit that Hawkins is a principal on?

    I expected to see an ethics compliant over the last one but maybe they figured given enough rope, they would hang themselves.

    Or maybe some members of the council blindly support Hawkins or don’t know better? and if some one says something it is construed as “not fair”

    Do they not understand land use?

    Yes, clean water, wastewater, and garbage pickup.Don’t blur the lines.

    Do not used government funds to print ink or use town electricity etc.

    If it’s going into a non profit Slippery slope.

    Maybe next time the voters will come out and vote.

    It does matter.

    Being in Century should be entertaining enough.

    It’s like the Century town leadership operates in a fantasy land where things just pay for themselves, no need to worry about how to finance anything, someone will give us a grant, I’m sure of it. This governing body has WAY out lived it’s usefulness, time to dissolve it and join the rest of the county, stop wasting citizens time and money.

    The town needs to stick to providing clean water, maintaining the streets, and spending tax payer money wiasely.

    I had no idea what it was about so mine went in the garbage can instead of the envelope.
