City Council made it clear on Tuesday that it should be the only entity to approve Legacy spending when it rejected the city controller’s proposal to set up a fund that would allow her to borrow from the Legacy Fund for emergency expenses. What do you think about the council’s decision to reject the proposal?

Jim Keller: sounds like they’re doing their job to me ... allowing a city controller to have access is just asking for potential abuse/problems in the future.

Leoba R. Stratton: Council should be in control of resources. Tired of mayor spending too much money on useless studies.
