I thought I had seen that Council had appropriated over $300,000 for this at one point but I could only find where they appropriated $123,000 at the Feb 21 meeting.
Of course any unused funds go back into the general fund anyway.
Someone had commented that this wasted a lot of city staff time. Unfortunately, cities do operate this way. They receive a proposal and pursue it using -staff man hours. This is what staff does.
I agree with Rick that perhaps staff could have explored this instead of having NSS do it but my guess is they would have come up with less information than NSS did. NSS hung themselves on the information they presented...
Does anyone have an idea of how much money was invested into this idea?
