I just heard the most ridiculous thing on the news. They were, of course, talking about today’s snowstorm. The news reporter said that the City of Milwaukee had some “contingency funds set aside” for snow removal… but that with the snow storm a couple of weeks ago and with today’s snow, that money is gone.
HELLO!!!! We live in Wisconsin. It snows. Routinely. You mean to tell me that this isn’t factored into the city’s budget?
Of course it is. And my guess is that these tearful words from city employees are just setting the stage for next year’s tax increase.
