The special city council meeting the other day was a disgrace.
Any business thinking about relocating to El Paso would have second thoughts if they had witnessed it.
Most of the meeting consisted of city staff telling us that there past projections on projects were woefully wrong. They simply will need more money to complete the projects.
Interspersed between items we saw various city representatives and citizens praising or condemning either the city manager or a city representative.
We even had a former city representative appear. In her best speaking out of both sides of the mouth style she criticized our old “strong mayor” form of government and then criticized our city manager for doing the same things.
The end result of the meeting is that we will be spending a lot more money for the quality of life projects and what little street maintenance we are doing.
We deserve better
