    Most of these are required by bigger gov’t to qualify for grants or just to show obedience. Most of the rest are planning documents created to promote/push the current mayors’ agenda, several of them have been soundly rejected by the citizens, which has not deterred her at all. What is really interesting is that I see only one that has anything to do with maintaining things already in existence and that one has gone almost nowhere. This mayor and her council minions are hell bent to build, buy, or hire everything they can think of while almost totally ignoring the protection of the peoples’ assets already existing. The only bright light in this tunnel is that due to their incompetence and/or ignorance they have not borne much fruit from the cost and effort. I propose that we furlough the mayor and council for a year and then hold a vote to see if anybody missed them; at least our pocketbooks might have time to quit bleeding.
