It’s a waste of $85,000

Dear Editor:

So now our illustrious mayor and city council want to hire an engagement contractor to the tune of $85,000 per annum for one year with an option to renew. What’s wrong with themselves listening to what the voters have been, and are still, saying to them about public park usage?

And how much was spent for the consulting firm that led “us” into the development of a Master Plan for Parks and Recreation?

Mayor and Council, listen to the people of the city and stop wasting public funds! Instead, cancel the contract with Trio and do not continue with the installation of pay parking on beach and public areas!
