Fuzzy math

As a lifelong resident of the “Education Community,” I wonder if some of our city leaders failed math. I have no idea how much a new street sweeper would cost to purchase, but I’m shocked the city leaders would be willing to lease a vehicle at a cost of more than $200 per day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

If the figures reported in The A-T are correct, that is what it costs to lease a street sweeper for three years. Getting a new street sweeper is important, but shuffling money around to help pay for much needed street paving may help people get re-elected.
