City wasting money

Interesting that our elected city leaders bemoan the general lack of funding for necessary services, then implement a fix by installing parking meters where high school students park (now that’s a high-income group) while voting to spend more money than necessary to purchase recycled paper. Does anyone other than me see something wrong with this picture?

Yeah, this is just one isolated incident, but it’s the one that finally got me to write. I did not vote for city leaders to spend money on feel-good projects, but to be fiscally responsible with tax dollars.

Be green by reducing waste, not by wasting my money, or did you forget who really pays for all city spending?
