"Our city is considered state-of-the-art in many respects; why not our public tennis courts?"

One word: Libraries

I know there's some sort of kaffufle between the libraries and the tennis courts in the south of Palo Alto, but I think that there is enough money in this city for the libraries, the tennis courts, _and_ the schools.

By the way, I just looked at the tennis thread (Web Link) about libraries, and noticed that there is an Andrew over there as well. It isn't me, but we seem to share the same concerns.

Bemused -- if only you were right! Unfortunately, you might add employee pensions, medical benefits, ill-concieved public works projects, graft, insentiate city council members....and more ... to your 'one word'.

We don't even have enough to pave and maintain our streets. It's not surprising that tennis courts are falling apart along with the rest of the infrastructure. A lot of our city employees will, however, have nice retirements.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
