Every government has the ability to increase its available funds in two ways:
- Increasing the money coming in.
- Decreasing the money going out.
But may I boldly suggest that spending is absolutely out of control. I frequently see your city employees parked down by the waterfront, snoozing in their trucks. The other day, I saw 5 city workers cutting down a few branches on a small tree. I've done such work before and it could clearly be done by just 2. City Hall staff are still working just 4 days per week, correct?
When will the mayor of this city put his (or her) foot down and stop the excessive waste?
