The city council is proposing to spend $50 million for a
police HQ. That's almost $1000 per resident.
Admittedly, I have no specific expertise with regards to
this issue, but this seems outrageously profligate to me.
Especially given the city government's track record on
Does anyone have access to amounts comparably-sized cities
typically spend on a police HQ?
And I can't believe they're toying with the idea of packaging
the bond measure for this project along with the proposed
library upgrade bond. Don't I remember a failed library bond
a couple of years ago that was rejected due to having other
unrelated spending packaged together?
