Bike lanes nothing but a con job

I am very disappointed with city council, to let a special interest group con you like they have.

In the future, why not have all proposals before city council put up a cash deposit either out of their pocket or from funds raised? That way they will realize that tax money is not free money. If council thinks the idea is legitimate do a cost estimate on the project. Then have the people presenting the plan put up a percentage of the estimated cost. That should protect the majority of the taxpaying public. A great rally cry for anyone wanting to run for mayor or city council in the next election would be remember the bike lanes.
