This one is a little tricky. I want two of these things done, but within the budget, so it may include a couple of other things. For instance, consolidating services and defunding the RDA could go toward helping give our firefighters and police officers a decent health insurance and pension plan. at the same time, crumbling sewer lines is the first domino in a line of crumbling infrastructure. That is going to be costly and probably can't fit into a budget even with cutbacks, consolidations and eliminations.

Sigh. Big job. I'm also having a hard time choosing who I think might be the person for the job.

If they don't defund the RDA, I'd at least like to have an up to date report, a real report, on what exactly they have done in the past six months.

Yes, sewers and infrastrucure needs a lot of work. Also, did I see something somewhere about the tax on stormwater being illegal? Where did I see that?
