Will someone please wake me up and tell me that I have been dreaming, or
what more aptly should be described as a nightmare!
In that dream, I am leafing through the July 28th edition of the Lloydminster
Source and I see report by Geoff Lee that headines, “City struggles to find $80
million,” which outlines the city’s need for the construction of a new
wastewater plant while, to date, having identified only $6 million in funding.
THEN, the dream turned to the nightmare when I read that the city voted to
purchase the old Synergy building and—get this—plan to spend upwards of
$18 to 20 million to retrofit the building into usable space.
Did a spaceship come down to earth and rob city council members and the
mayor of their brains?
How fiscally irresponsible can anyone be?
I hope that the members of council do not get access to a city credit card!
Shame, shame, shame
Such irresponsible action by folks that are supposed
to be acting for the good of their community, not selling it down the river.
