I think you hit the nail on the head. This town didn't start spending money like drunken sailors until Town Administrator Gary Parker was hired three years ago. Since then it's been spend, spend, spend and the council blindly rubber stamps every expenditure.
Parker has publicly admitted there are at least 2 building inspectors on the payroll that are not needed since there is NO building activity, but said he doesn't want to fire them because he would have to train replacements when building picks up again. What kind of idiot keeps people on the payroll that aren't needed?
The question that needs to be answered is what is driving Parker to spend millions of dollars? Who is the "wizard" behind the curtain telling him what to do? Maybe WWAY should do some investigative reporting and find out what's going on, because something smells in Sunset Beach and it's not the rotten fish.
