And do the bureaucrats creating these recommendations and having the ears of council members really think that the $30,000 saved stacks up against the frustration and annoyance of householders, the phone calls to city hall, and the animosity generated, is worth it?

You bet! It covers about half the pay and benefits of the clean air ambassador. Now what will they think of next, to cover the Road to the Roar, the garbage truck garage, the purchase of the Norgate property, the money needed to just apply for hosting the Winter Games, and many other projects worthy of occupying those contemplative minds?
