Dryer at plant going to surplus on 4-3 vote

Monday, March 4, 2013 — City Council members narrowly approved a consideration for a biosolids dryer at the wastewater treatment plant to be sold as surplus property Monday night.

Some council members preferred that they wait to take action until a study is completed by Municipal Engineering before making the dryer surplus property, available for sale through bids.

The consideration was approved by a vote of 4-3, with councilmembers Martha Sue Hall, Ronnie Michael and Dexter Townsend voting against the proposal.

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
