Yep. There’s a huge problem, and one that will consume the City of Chico’s finances if it isn’t properly addressed, and that right soon. Yet we dither over this issue by arguing about pay raises and increasing staffing on positions that aren’t necessary given our service delivery model (that is one of the most inefficient in the entire state of California).
We shouldn’t be arguing about how old the roof is when the entire house is in flames and jumping to the three neighbors roofs…while the block next door is on fire…and the one next door to that block is on fire.
Fix the problem!
