This is another letter to the editor of the Times:
After reviewing the projected costs for the $1 billion bond which the city is putting in the hands of the voters, I sat dumbfounded and wanting a better explanation from our city leaders regarding the $90.6 million they are requesting for the Police Headquarters. How in the world is it going to cost $90.6 million to renovate that old building on Raynor Street? The new WestStar tower is costing Weststar/Hunt $85 million and they are getting an 18-story state of the art facility. Seems like they could build a brand-new building with a parking lot in Downtown for that cost. As taxpayers, this should concern us all.

Well how about it?
Even if they plan to build a new building instead of remodeling the one in Five Points how do they justify the $90.6 million that they are asking for?
Wouldn’t they have to hire a whole bunch more policemen to sit around in offices to justify an 18 story building?
We deserve better
