It looks like COAST may finally prevail in eliminating Mayor's car allowance

For more than two years, COAST has been litigating the issue of the legality of the Mayor's $500 per month car allowance.  He has thrown tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees at the issue, to preserve one of the perks he had taken (without authorization) from his office.

Read here about how one budget proposal will eliminate that benefit, but only after the November election.

(Note, the benefit is $6,000 per year, but because the cut will only start with the next Mayor - Mallory continues to insist on receiving the illegal benefit, the savings won't begin until December).
