Council Approves $100,000.00 Bathroom
And It's Only A Single 'Holer'!
If you have some fear that city council might deprive you the privilege of paying more taxes this year, you will be pleased to know that they have once again been busy at work thinking up more creative ways to spend your tax dollars.
The latest example of carefree spending involves the approval to put in a 60 square foot single stall toilet in Diana Krall Plaza for the low, low price of only $100,000. In case you wonder, that works out to only $1666.00 per square foot. It certainly makes the new city annex look like a bargain!
City Council may wring their hands, stroke their beards (sorry ladies) and in soft reassuring voices tell you they will do all in their power to hold the line on taxes, but I don't think they really mean it.
It seems obvious that Mr. Wells message earlier about the 'pot' not being limitless was a message that went right over council's head.
Councilor McKay was the only member of council to oppose this rather lavish sounding expenditure.
