Before the 7:00 meeting, they of course have to feed themselves. Recklessly spending money requires stamina and energy. What land are they buying now? I know they have been dying to buy more property downtown to use for parking lots, did they finally find someone willing to sell? Deferred maintenance is estimated at $400,000,000, so let’s buy MORE properties we can’t take care of! You won’t find out Monday what they want to buy – it’s a SECRET Meeting! (Executive Session)
Remember this in September when you are told taxes have to be raised – there is nothing to cut.
