Council can’t seem to curtail spending habits

It is real easy to spend other people’s money; it is impossible for some to stop spending other people’s money.

To the Editor,

I see our current (for a few more months) mayor and council are once again proving my point – it is real easy to spend other people’s money; it is impossible for some to stop spending other people’s money.

City staff recommended only to receive for information the report on the consultation process for the Port Theatre expansion, not to approve massive multimillion-dollar spending for it.

This appears to be another end run around the normal process of scrutiny to determine which proposals are really a community priority.

Since when is a rehearsal hall a priority over the long-delayed fire hall at Hammond Bay? Or any number of other higher city needs?
