The issue is that this is a 1 billion dollar corporation that has hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure deficits, scandal, a "culture of low expectations", and people lost jobs to try and keep tax increases low. Every dollar cut helps with saving. That 5K could go to any number of programs in need rather than giving a trinket to a staffer or councillor to mark their time working at city hall. This is an example of largesse and people paid by my tax dollars making decisions as if the money belonged to nobody and there is no accountability.

We already give them a nice gift for their years of service - it's called a pension and a healthy paycheque. If they want the ring, let them buy it on their own.
