Cindy moved to Brookfield in 1994 with her husband and three children in tow. It's been a very interesting seventeen years.
Check out this agenda item for the Economic Development Committee on Monday:
5. Discussion of utilizing $15,000 in budgeted Consultant Services funds to work with Brookfield CVB to study the market for tourism related development.
Of course they will spend it. Of course it is stupid. For a split second I wished I were Mayor in order to blast stupid ideas like this one.
Thank goodness that thought didn't last.
Seriously, though, if I remember correctly this is a budgeted amount that won't even see a Common Council vote.
Your dollars at work, folks. Your dollars at work.
(PS The budget is online already at the city's website. I'll have comments on that later this week.)
