Coun­cil just wasted a quar­ter-mil­lion

RE: Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion on ward bound­aries

Please help me un­der­stand this. The city does not have the staff to do a job, so we hire “ex­pert con­sul­tants” to re­design ward bound­aries — at a cost of $260,000. Our coun­cil­lors do not like the re­port, so de­cide that they, af­ter all, know best, and con­duct and ap­prove their own rec­om­men­da­tions. Please give the con­sul­tant’s re­port to me and I will prom­ise to shred it, so the tax­pay­ers don’t have to en­dure that ad­di­tional ex­pense. More than a quar­ter of a mil­lion dol­lars wasted. Sad. Joe Benedetti, Hamil­ton
