Your firehouses are wrong. Do your research!

I didn't write it. That came directly from the mayor's office.

Why hasn't the city made more progress on Flood and Erosion Control?

Stopped under Nicastro, restarted under Stortz, stopped under Ward?

Why? So Ward can hold off spending money so he looks good and gets re elected. To bad most of us are not as stupid as he is.

"To bad" ???

"To" is a preposition which begins a prepositional phrase or an infinitive. "Too" is an adverb meaning "excessively" or "also."

Your sentence should read, "TOO bad most of us are not as stupid as he is."

Er...maybe you should reconsider that statement? Seems like you definitely meet the criteria! ;0)

"tight a@# grammer police is out of his box!!!!"

Sweetie, that'd be "grammar" police. Oops, looks like now the tight a@# spelling police are out too!

Poor spelling and bad grammar are the hallmark of the unintelligent, as you've proven with your comments!

No money for flood control, big bucks for trees and street lights.

Makes no sense to me.

1:53 and 5:49 - quite obvious that Dirt bags may be more prevalent than sand bags.
