Monzel Moves to Stop Trolley Spending

Common sense in midst of budget crisis
In 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.
