Other Public Works has no explanation.

How did parks go up to 62 in 2008, then down to 46 in 2013?

Baseball fields, Basketball courts, and Tennis courts are great, but the maintenance money is always scarce.  Ditto for parks with playground equipment.

I believe the EPA is now requiring separate storm sewers and sanitary sewers.  Of course, that increases the cost.
