Does the Utilities Dept. have an 'unlimited' budget
Original post made by Kate, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Jul 2, 2014
The latest commandment mailing from Utilities is a prime example of a big budget and "mailed brochures' telling us what to do or not, how to do it and when, and in general, minding our business. The latest missive "A Strong Foundation to Move Palo Alto Forward" was impressive for creativity, color, folded ingeniously like an expensive Hallmark card, and big - the kind of card that takes extra postage. What are we supposed to do with this? Frame it? Save it? Use it as a prayer before meals? Sit down all the kids and make them memorize it? I would like the city to 'come clean'. What is the advertising budget for the our Utility Department? How much does the Advertising Director make per year plus benefits? WHAT are we supposed to do with this???
