Concrete works for me. You can argue heritage all you want, but it doesn't exclude shoddy workmanship or lack of leadership.

I would seriously question the design and construction of a government building that requires major surgery after just 40 years service. We're talking about nearly two million bucks worth of decay and depreciation per year here. That's sad.

If the fixation over marble is an issue of safety, then core-bore four rather large holes at the corners of each slab and affix large stainless steel bolts with nuts and washers. Then clean, point and polish the slabs to a mirror finish. Done.

It's not that big of a job to preserve the weak "heritage" of this uninspiring structure. The big deal is all the "consultant" costs associated with "ready, aim, aim, aim, aim ..."

I'm not as concerned with how the city hall looks, as I am about how well city staff works. Council should be praised for stiffening their buttocks, gripping their gun stocks and firmly squeezing their triggers.

Let's roll out the next barrel of fish, LRT.
