The Standard Times reported:
San Angelo is poised and committed to making strides in top five priorities set by the City Council two years ago: Water, streets, a police station, employee pay and development processes.Boldness is committing $4 million to a project not in the top five at the last city council meeting. Boldness is also holding a series of strategic planning meetings outside council chambers, not recording and not sharing their deliberations with the public.
“Boldness isn’t charging forward blindly without a plan, and with a total disregard for financial responsibility,” Valenzuela said. “Boldness means making tough decisions now knowing there will be criticism for these efforts.”
That's $4 million less for water, streets, the new police station, employee pay and the ever elusive development process.
