Everyone, from the city manager, the mayor, council members, and the public have said that in order to make up this budget deficit Puyallup needs to find small savings that will add up to big savings.
How about starting with the City Council’s expenses. Expenses for things like travel to Washington DC, meals, hotels, internet access from their homes.
As you can see, over $23,000 were spent. Quickly going through the bills, we discovered $200 charged by George Dill, $400 charged by Rick Hansen, and $0 charged by John Knutsen.
The rest of the money, $22,000+ was either charged by Kathy Turner, Don Malloy, Mike Deal, or Tami Brouillet.
It’s about time the council walked the walk and started cutting their own amenities.
