The City of Wilmington might have admitted how many dollars they spent on baseball with their consultants, lawyers and outside city hall, but they haven’t tabulated the costs in terms of staff time. Asst. City Manager Tony Caudle along with legal and financial staff spent a substantial amount of their time on this issue and the city hasn’t accounted for that as of yet.
If they can calculate how much it costs to respond to a false alarm via the police department, surely they can tell the public how much time/money it costs taxpayers for the wasteful baseball proposal. To paraphrase Councilman Kevin O’Grady, “Do you hear that knocking? That’s opportunity. . . And the citizens want to know what the cost was councilman. . . time to come clean.!”
Still waiting for the local media to ask the same question.
