Your Ideas Are Scissors. Go Ahead. Cut.
Posted by whforums on June 22, 2008
I’d like to keep this simple, because, as I’ve said before, it seems that too often throughout this “budget season,” rhetoric has overwhelmed content. So here’s what I’d like to know:
Since cuts to the budget need to be made, what do you think those cuts should be? Specifically — do you think West Hartford needs two senior centers? Should pools be open for a shorter summer season? Students are currently eligible for a bus if they’re a mile away from a school — should we change that distance to a mile and a half? Start with the parking meters (or “fancy curriculum”) if you must, but a substantive conversation about real cuts might better serve the community.
Anyway, it’s your budget. So, go ahead. Cut it.
