Commissioner Dermer, the Chairman of the Oversight Committee, expressed his concerns as to the process for these projects, he expressed these types of issues should be addressed to the GO Bond Committee prior to referring it to the Finance and Citywide Projects Committee.
He also expressed concern with the GO Bond report which will be sent to the commission for approval. The concern is the intermingling of the Public Works issue with the GO Bond issue. The GO Bond Committee felt it did not have the jurisdiction to approve the Public Works issue. The GO Bond Committee, froze the 6th Street project, the 10th Street project and the Shane Water sports project.
Commissioner Bower asked if the monies which are being approved today for these projects, have they already been approved by the commission? Patricia Walker replied today some have and others are anticipated to go before the city commission in the near future.
