The latest Mary Souza missive it out and she's making a list and checking it twice. Guess who is coming out on the naughty side?

"Well hold onto your wallets, taxpayers, because the City of Coeur d’Alene has a long shopping list too, and we’re going to pay the bill. You’ve been hearing about one problem or another for quite awhile now, but I just sat down and wrote out a list. You should be sitting down too, when you get a load of this:

Probable Upcoming Obligations of the City of CdA:

–Wastewater Plant upgrade: $31 million
–Dike Road repair: $1.5 – 3 million
–Stormwater System: $1 million
–Dixon Police lawsuit ~$4 million
–Person Field acquisition: $650,000
–Front Street renovation project: $2.9 million
–Water System upgrades: 30% fee increase over 6 years
–CdA Lake Drive acquisition & liability: (yes, it’s still alive) Cost = ?"

More here.

Actually, this list looks similar to one The Govenor posted here.

Do you think the city of Cda is spending too much money?
