I wasn’t going to even go there this month (start p. 42), but some Internet Research Commandos (though not our beloved Originals) kept bugging me about stuff like this:

2485 FIRST BANKCARD… 8376 8.65 ESPIRITU-BOSTON MRKT 3/6 LUNC
2485 FIRST BANKCARD… 8376 140.76 ACM-ROSITAS-ENHNCMNT CMMSS
196054 FIRST BANKCARD… 8376 26.39 FARNUM-LNCLNINN-3/14DWNTWN
196055 FIRST BANKCARD…8376 17.24 FINANCE CHARGES [oops?]

I guess because, knowing what they do about the city budget, they resent our administrators acting like they have no cares in the world.

Personally, I also resent $150 being spent for these DeKalb County Economic Development roundtables (monthly, I think? p. 57) when we already pay DCEDC thousands.

But when it comes to the City Check Register for the month of April, I most of all resent $2790 being paid to a person who was contracted–instead of hired in order to get around the freeze–for a department that supposedly doesn’t even exist yet (p. 62 and here).

Question: How many people who do business with the City of DeKalb ended up on the Financial Advisory Committee? There is at least one. Does that seem right to you?
