Title: City spending
On whether study wasted money
To the Editor:
The people writing recent letters to local papers are concerned Snohomish City Hall is spending too much money on Strategies 360 to improve Snohomish’s image and communication skills.
Give the City Council members some credit. They realize they need help in understanding they have an obligation to be more responsible to us.
Is that a waste of money? Could be.
Let’s talk about wasting our money. Here is an example of just that: The city just purchased, for $700,000, land for a future park. The council spent this large amount of money before the public Metropolitan Parks Tax vote was taken. It failed. Now the property sits because money is not available to develop it. This is an example of assuming too much, thinking too little.
I’m not convinced Strategies 360 can fix City Hall. Paying Strategies 360 $13,000 could be as pointless as teaching a horse to play tennis.
