City spending more than it can afford

Hello, taxpayers!

I am appalled at the city seeking $32.2 million for upgrades to 11 city projects. Where are we getting the money for the new pool?

Is it over and above this? Maybe the city should forego building a new pool. The money for that could refurbish all these 11 projects.

We shouldn't be holding any games until we can afford to host them. They may benefit a few entrepreneurs. We don't have jobs for any who would think of moving here to increase our population.

Why do we have to spend so much money on vehicles? Perhaps just replacing a few each year would be better. I am driving a 15-year-old vehicle as I can't afford a new one.

Haven't we spent enough money on Masich Place, only to have controversy on hours of use? We the taxpayers paid for the track.

I run my household on what I can afford, not on what I want. I expect the city to overhaul their books and spend accordingly to what we can afford.
