    Another prime example of ways to waste other people’s money.

    The city has allocated $60,000 a year of tax-payer money for these various “round-about art”. Nice gig for those on the inside, great way to grease one another’s palms.

    Thumbs up to Word and the finalists. Nice competition. Looking forward to seeing it during future drives.
