It's a tough question. I was starting to feel sorry for the CPA who had to make sense of Mayor Fowler's mashugana budget process. All my sympathy evaporated when I awoke to the fact that $97,000 in new vehicle purchases were lumped in with the Police Department's annual operating budget and $30,000 was budgeted for the Buechel Festival under "Capital Outlays," along with $60,000 for Economic Development Payroll.
It just does not seem to be quite right . . . to me.
