Some contractor must be getting rich if council spends a half-million bucks to spruce up an alley. The city should definitely get more bids on that work.
But what will city taxpayers get for this $400,000 per alley? Nicer bricks to walk on, for vagrants to pee on and for addicts to drop their needles on? Where will the Dumpsters go?
This sounds like another ill-conceived plan dreamed up by a City Council without a plan. What are they smoking?
