New Albany masterplan must be funded to work, officials say; Drainage plan calls for $22.4 million in projects, by Daniel Suddeath (Tribune)How did the expected CFA self-immolations proceed, anyway?
... But officials realize the city can’t afford to fund $22.4 million in projects within a few years, (Stantec project manager Steve) Hall continued.
Another gem, this one of the legal bagel/copperhead variety, comes packaged within Suddeath's account of the city council's shiny new 5-4 progressive majority, which held long enough to pass two 3rd readings at yesterday's special conclave. It seems that even though the council president and city clerk scrupulously obeyed the law as it governs placement of agenda items for such a gathering, it did not please the resident reptilian polymath:
New Albany council passes sewer loan; Full-time attorney, grant writer also OK’d by councilThat's a world classic quote, perhaps sufficiently profound to be printed on the front of the tickets required to visit the Open Air Museum.
“It is the law, yes. But to me, it’s not enough,” (Dan) Coffey said.
