It seems that senior city staff and our mayor don’t want to appoint a committee to oversee the use of the $413 million public safety bond.
You should recall that the city added this footnote to their bond literature:
Actual use of any approved bond funds will be determined by subsequent action by City Council.
Why don’t they want a committee of citizens to oversee the spending?
Could it be that they plan to divert the money away from police and fire needs?
City council is not managing the city manager well. They need to exert their authority.
We deserve better
