The Fiscal Crisis

Does anyone know when city managers first realized when the incinerator (a) wasn't properly designed to handle ingress and egress and (2) when the revenue predictions for the incinerator clearly weren't going to come true?

It seems to me that city managers should have gone to city council much sooner to discuss an amended budget and borrowing power. That way, these layoffs and cuts could have been either better planned or avoided altogether.

And Aries has a point - Internet access at city hall probably doesn't amount to a hill of beans in terms of total cost. What matters is who knew what when. I'd hate to think they knew about the shortfall before the primary.
