How to slash the city budget

Once you ask, it turns out there are hundreds of ways


As Halifax Council and staff have been looking for ways to meet the upcoming $30 million budget shortfall, hundreds of suggestions have come in--- from staff, from councillors, from the public generally.

City staff has compiled those suggestions, and the full list is now available on the city's web site.

I'm linking to it, because I'd like to see what readers think. So far, at my cursory glance, it appears some of the suggestions are ridiculous, others good ideas, and a great many need more investigation.

I'll have a more in-depth analysis next week, but just wanted to get this out now.
