Who are the tax payer’s last line of Defense? The city council is. Was sitting thinking about it today, after the city council meeting, and the city council really is our (the tax payer’s) last line of defense. Against wasteful spending, corruption, and violation of the city charter. Among so many other things. Even when an invoice may be approved by others, they are the last to put their approval on it before it gets paid.
Look forward to the year to see what is going to happen.
