I'm still waiting for Mr. Kuttner to make good on his offer to dredge our reservoir, but first he'll have to talk his anti-dredge PR man David Brown into giving up his future creep stance against dredging. He just overturned the previous Council plan to dredge and build a modest 13 foot dam, making dredging attractive, and now wants to build a mega dam with no money for dredging. Oliver talk some sense into this man.

"Two years ago, Kuttner helped embarrass local water officialsââ?¬â? who were busily portraying dredging their main reservoir as impossibly expensiveââ?¬â? by offering to dredge for $30 million, a fraction of the quarter-billion one consultant claimed it might cost. ââ?¬Å?It would be a dream job,” Kuttner said. ââ?¬Å?I’ll make so much money.”

"I'll buy a Mud Cat; I'll make lots of money," says contractor Oliver Kuttner, who adds he would dredge for $30 million.
