One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.


Why wasn’t the “Two Thirds Bond” proposal recorded in the Minutes of the City Council meeting or briefing on July 28, 2009?

…the City Council did not make a final decision

 on items to be funded from the City’s FY 09-10 two-thirds bond capacity

at its July 28th briefing.


 Of the approx. $11,360,000 capacity,

 we have recommended using $7,420,000 for Landfill closure costs.


The council will decide

whether to use the remaining balance of $3,940,000

and on what projects at a future date.


They are considering a variety of items
