Since the Mayor Won't Let His Staff Present the Budget...I Will Point Out Some Interesting Items

Rick Outzen posted that the City staff will not be presenting anything regarding the budget in person for the first time in....ever.

The City has historically held budget workshops where department heads detail their budgets and give Council and the Public a chance to ask questions and understand the current operations of the departments.

"Transparent" Hayward has killed this important report to Council and the Citizens.  Once again, he proves that he is all words, smiles and photos and has no substance.

I will take this opportunity to share my own budget high lights over the coming weeks...with no opportunity for Tricky Dick to do anything but take it!

Check back regularly and see the budget items the Mayor and his CFO don't want you to know!

Game on!

It would be very interesting to know the real cost of the CMPA and what the City pays to maintain the Baseball stadium.

Anonymous at 6:00 AM brings up an excellent point. I will bet you dollars to doughnuts that the real cost to maintain the baseball stadium is buried deep within the city's parks and recreation budget. Grass cutting, fertilizer, janitorial services, etc. are not broken down so that someone can distinguish if the costs are being allocated to a neighborhood park or to the stadium. Neighborhood parks are growing knee-high weeds. The baseball stadium infield is being weeded daily with tweezers. This is the reason the city hired itself to maintain the stadium. If the city were writing large checks to an outside landscape company it would be plainly noticeable.
