Why didn't Palo Alto decide to pay $10k or $100k per month for the service?

Don't forget, they paid $500,000.00 for a website. Hello!?!?!?!?

Why didn't PA decide to pay that amount Joanna? Why then you would have actually been justified in making a sarcastic statement. Remember, if all you spew is negative, people just stop listening.

Having seen one too many mini crime waves associated with construction work in different neighborhoods (not unique to Palo Alto), I wish workers had to register in a system that was easy to compare to the above...

James,

I am publicizing facts that are being suppressed. We don't read too many stories about public spending largess.

Anyway, spew yourself, and let others hear about what was done with their money.

Joanna. And also realize and acknowledge how fortunate we are to live in such a fine city. Not a sign of suppression, just fairness, balance, and gratitude. Try it sometime. It might look better on you.
