Although I could not follow the budget as closely as I would have wanted, I am nonetheless working on a post detailing all of the capital projects for future reference.
While doing so, I noticed something that jumped out at me. Despite the fact that the people behind the sailing hall of fame publicly said that they did not need any public money, the city has pledged $50,000 of taxpayer money for the HOF in each of the next 3 years.
You can see the budget item by clicking HERE and scrolling down to project 521, entitled "Non Profit Capital Funding".
All we hear about this budget is how lean it is...does this sound lean to you?
