Shortfall? How about overspending, malfeasance of office, etc.? Why can't the City of New Albany live within their Budget?
$30,000.00 needed Monday night for Police overtime? What, did Harvest Homecoming happen and we missed it?
Why would you hire firefighters when you weren't budgeted to do so and Council did not give their approval? Or, did Council give their approval when they voted for the annexation? Is England still maintaining he doesn't have to pay the money to the County for the new fire station on Charlestown Road?
Okay. We are aware the Horseshoe Foundation paid for backpacks for kids for school last year. Since when, though, does it become the City's responsibility to shell out $30,000.00 for the Churches to buy backpacks this year? My kid didn't get a backpack last year - what's up with this? Isn't there a separation between Church and State?
Is Mayor England afraid if Gahan wins there will be an audit? Does he think he can stop an Audit if he gets on the Council? We are afraid so.
Shortfall? Yeah, right. It seems to us we just keep digging that hole deeper.
