Chamber

The city needs revenue. The city could increase its revenue if it would quit funding the Chamber of Commerce and WDI. Neither one represent all of the people anymore. It is special interest and downtown only. The city needs to take a long hard look at all the things it funds and cut the waste and special favors. The city workers salaries average 10% less than other cities in our area. I have been told (not verified) that city "bosses" average 15-25% higher salaries than other cities in our area. The city workers also keep getting their benefits cut......The priorities sure seem to be in the wrong place. The city keeps losing workers to these other areas meaning Wilmington has a less experienced work force and is constantly paying to train new workers......A complete and total audit of how the city spends the tax dollars of it's citizens is way past due......

It sure is funny how the city always counts the time city staff spends on different things as a cost.......except for the baseball fiasco. One honest poll could have saved the tax payers 100's of thousands of dollars. Before any city is allowed to expand it's borders, it should be required to prove that it is fiscally responsible to those already enslaved.......
