  1. …submitted with and buried in 422 pages…The Council doesn’t have the time to scrutinize all these figures AND read 422 pages of “background” material. They have no clue how much and on what money is spent. The Budget Task Force had plenty of time though…did they bother is the question.

  2. Seems the History Museum is asking for the $50,000.00 contribution to their Capital Campaign to provide among other things, WiFi inside and outside the Museum. The question is–will it be free WiFi. Are the taxpayers going to subsidize the use of cell phones downtown? A cellphone user doesn’t have to use their data if there is free WiFi available nearby. Does the City think they might attract more visitors to the Museum with that perk?

    1. It is for Downtown. Some of the money is for a landscape artist and landscaping. Apparently the City recently gave the Museum $150,000.00 for the Rt.66 Visitor Center in addition to an annual $20,000.00 contribution/subsidy. It is not clear if the $50,000.00 will be in addition to the $20K or as a replacement. Does the Council even know what they are agreeing to?
