Re: “City faces $118M pinch,” July 19


It’s so easy for city council to give up so fast and save as much work as possible to find the money needed for 2008. The problem is, every time the city needs money, they look at hiking property taxes.


Instead, why not put a pay freeze on all government employees — some get double their salaries for overtime and special events. There are many ways to find the money needed. A little hard work, and it’s amazing what one can do.
