Shell Game Continues with Utilities Scam

Gary Welsh writes in his blog today: "City-County Council President Ryan Vaughn continues in his efforts to ram through a plan to transfer the utilities currently owned by the City of Indianapolis to Citizens Energy, a public benefit corporation owned by the residents of Marion County, in a deal that forces the utility to pay $263 million to the City to finance pork barrel projects supported by Mayor Ballard and the Republican-led council, and that forces on Citizens a one-sided operating agreement that allows the client of Vaughn's law firm to continue operating the water utility."

No equivocation there, folks. All eyes are on the City-County Council tonight. Will they roll over and do Barnes & Thornburg's bidding? Indy taxpayers are about to take it on the chin, again.
