Money spent un­wisely

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - OPINION -

I’m out­raged at the city of Ft. Laud­erdale’s de­ci­sion to gift $500,000 to the NSU Art Mu­seum of Ft. Laud­erdale.

This $500,000 could have been bet­ter spent in elim­i­nat­ing the need for hand­i­capped people to pay park­ing fees in city-owned garages and lots, and also re­pair­ing the drainage in ar­eas where mas­sive flood­ing oc­curs af­ter heavy rain­falls caus­ing dam­age to homes and ve­hi­cles.

It is ap­par­ent the city does not take into con­sid­er­a­tion the needs of all its res­i­dents and has the au­dac­ity to ask vot­ers to ap­prove two bond is­sues which will in­crease their taxes, but found $500,000 to gift the mu­seum.

This is an is­sue that should be ques­tioned and de­serves an ex­pla­na­tion.
