Is This a Radical View by the Commissioner?–The Commission Should Decide

One option should be to not spend all of the money and not borrow all of the $22 amount proposed.  It is terrible financial management to borrow the money and then decide how to spend it, like a giant slush fund.  This is terrible city management.

Going forward, it will be up to the City Commission — not the manager — to establish priorities for the NRP money. I remain optimistic that the city commission will be pragmatic rather than fanciful in its use of the NRP funds.
