I’m not a reporter but I can think of another couple of stories that should be told about the debt that the folks at the city have run up on us.
This and prior city councils have approved projects that have yet to be completed.
I’m not talking about the quality of life projects or the recent bond election.
According to the city chief financial officer’s slide presentation there will be another $179 million needed to pay for previously approved projects that have not been completed yet.
The city was not sitting on a $100 million secret when they promoted the public safety bonds. They were sitting on $279 million.
Maybe that isn’t much money in our city manager’s view but it is to many of us.
We deserve better
