And I thought Oshkosh was greedy!

I saw this in the Oshkosh Northwestern site and found it quite humorous:

Sidewalk amendment sought in Omro

OMRO – The Omro Common Council will consider an ordinance amendment tonight to have the city pay a larger portion of sidewalk replacement costs when it meets at 7 p.m.

Since the council changed the formula in 2002 to have property owners pay 70 percent and the city pay 30 percent, not a single new sidewalk has been installed, said City Administrator Linda Kutchenriter.

The old formula prior to 2002 had the city paying 70 percent and the property owner paying 30 percent. A new plan to share the cost 50-50 will be considered by the council. The meeting will be held in the lower level council chambers at City Hall, 205 S. Webster Ave.

Not a single sidewalk has been laid since they flipped the expenses. What a riot!
