Hayward to Drain the Tree Fund in 2018

On page 41 of the proposed 2018 City of Pensacola budget, Mayor Hayward sneaks in the DRAINING for the Tree Planting Trust Fund.

The Beginning Fund Balance in the Fund has the following history.

2015 - $614,797
2016 - $514,341
2017 - $181,000
2018 - $290,000
2019 - $0
2020 - $0

Hayward is sucking this fund dry, while historic oaks are leveled in historic numbers as the West Side gets redeveloped.

How many heritage oaks will be destroyed for the Hallmark School development?

Running the port in the ground,
Draining the Tree Fund,
Having a non-accredited police department,

No wonder he doesn't want budget workshops!

Let's find some more!

It's ironic that Hayward would drain the tree fund. After all we know how he likes to operate in the shade.

Pensacola is a Tree City... oops - was a Tree City.

Anonymous 2:53 - That's what shady people do and that's exactly what we've come to expect from an administration with skinny pants at the helm.

When I first saw the title, I thought you were about to say, "Hayward to Drain the Swamp". Lmbo...Well he has about as many "wins" as the "You're going to win so much, you're going to get tired of winning" guy. If we are winning, I'm certainly tired of it but I'd sure hate to see what losing looks like.
