This is the same old story, year after year. we get it, 2 days from now it will be in the advocate, enough already. Lets see a story on how much money, private contractors working for our city parks,board of education gov.center are taking out of here, include energy contracts and sing along contributions from the 3rd floor, glenbrook rentals and pay-outs. toquam mold issues, it goes on and on and on. just add up the checks and who they went to. dont jump on the people working for the city all day and night , that one day you will need there help.Wake up people the sleeping monster is getting hungrier on the third floor. stand back it gets deep and smells like rat . Reporters foi this info and go after it

Saying their is corruption and overpayment throughout the city does not justify excessive payments to the Police Dept. I understand the guy who runs the school system, but 80 police officers make upwards of a qtr million a year. That is a crime!

Mayor Pavia - When will someone hold city officals accountable for gross overspending on themselves.
