i agree that the ward specific levies are an inefficient way to distribute funds. the administrative costs associated with distribution as noted would be significant and duplicating services we already pay for.

i also think the comment mentioning that certain areas of the city need to use these funds for essential infrastructure while other areas of the city just use the pooled funds is an important thing to note. this is not appropriate as it disadvantages poorer areas.

i am a bit hesitant about the participatory democracy thing also... the government is elected to make hard decisions that may not be liked by everyone, but serves the interests of society as a whole (theoretically, obviously).
