I’m in 100% agreement. One of the city council members has a plan to ‘save’ the city’s budget by, gasp, cutting expenses, and a few accounting tricks. Wouldn’t it be reasonable to take that tact first, rather than selling (leasing) off the city’s parking meters?
Of course this way council members don’t have to take a political risk. Cutting the budget always gore’s someone’s ox and some constituency will be upset. Alternatively finding other sources of funding is always popular.
Maybe the Citizen’s of home of the Reds and the Bengals have something here. Put a stop to spending increases until the budget is under control.
