REALLY??? $150.00 for "administrative" (mayor's) approval....What are supervisors and budgets for???
If the city has been spending money it doesn't have, how can it afford to operate the future dog pound it has approved???

It's a shame that the only time Oakdale gets mentioned in the news, it is in regards to something negative. If the people of Oakdale would stop appointing their friends into public office, and start electing/hiring individuals that are qualified to perform daily duties, maybe the city would be in a better financial standing. I read the Oakdale Journal every week, and it seems that the city could pay all of there debts in full if they were collecting the fines from all the arrests being made, but I am sure that is not being handled correctly either. Wake up Oakdale residents, these problems are not going to fix themselves. Eventually the town is going suffer (more so than it already has) and the city will continue to fall further and further behind. Oakdale is a decent size town, with huge potential to be a prosperous community, but one person cannot achieve this goal alone. When are the city officials going to stop sticking their heads in the ground every time a problem becomes evident, and start being proactive in resolving these issues. I would like to think that something is going to change soon, but based on what i have seen in recent years there is little hope.
