Letter to the Editor: Putting tax dollars to good use?

To the Editor:

When I learned that the City wanted to hire a City Manager, I thought, “yes,” they could use one. I think they could use some help managing the budget and cut back on wasteful spending. For example, cutting down perfectly good trees, replacing of downtown plaza, replacing street lights with “prettier” ones, roofing of the former JCPenney building they don’t own, etc., etc. etc.

Now, I read in the council minutes the City Manager (hired to help eliminate wasteful spending) and council are discussing new furniture for City offices and comfy chairs in the council chambers. Where does putting tax dollars to good use fit into that one?
