Common sense in midst of budget crisisIn the midst of the most massive budget crisis in recent history, the City administration daily spends monies planning for a $219 million trolley system that will likely never be built. Engineering costs typically consume about 10% of a rail project budget. Is it any coincidence that this year's deficit is almost exactly equal to that figure? Council member Chris Monzel has introduced a Motion before Council to stop the foolish spending. Council, which favors trolley spending 7-2, has bottled the motion up in Committee without hearings.
