The money for this fund comes tacked on to every residents tax bill, yet only a chosen few get to decide how to spend millions. every ward has an infrastructure deficit, which grow worse every year. The policy for spending this money is pretty clear, infrastructure, not salting money away, or hiring staff. The sensible thing to do is speed up infrastructure projects already on the books, like ward seven councillor Scott Duvall does. Sidewalks get fixed, roads get shaved and paved, sewers get re-lined, and traffic lights for safety are installed faster. Each councillor should be chipping away at each wards infrastructure deficit, not spent money on pet projects that do not fit the criteria. The 12.8 million total from wards one to eight, could lower taxes by 2% across the board. Why not lift all boats?
