The Times has told us that our new mayor believes that certificates of obligation should only be issued to handle emergencies.
What part of the spending from the proposed $62 million in certificates of obligation would be used for an emergency item?
Would it be:
$16.8 million to increase funding for quality of life projects
$24.8 million to buy police cars, fire engines, repair a parking garage, and remodel some restrooms
$2.6 million to improve and repair facilities (including $700,000 for bathrooms at San Jacinto)
$18.1 million to have someone assess our streets, put traffic signals at new intersections, and add lights to our “entryways”
Has the mayor changed his mind? We will soon see how he handles the situation.
We deserve better
