Common sense >> I think a better idea would be for the mayor to resign.

Let the guy keep his job, but also mandate hard limits on his ability to waste the taxpayers money. If Hamilton installed hard caps on spending, say inflation plus population growth, he could still make stupid decisions, just not as many.

If we assume that politicians will always waste money, because they didn't have to work for it, they also need to be treated like children. Give them a set allowance and if there is a big ticket item they want for Xmas, they will have to save for it. This way, Hamilton will finally be able to bring down it's tax rates to the GTA average, which will encourage much more private investment and ultimately turn this city around.
