Wasteful sign could spark a revolt
The fire hydrant at Sonoma and Scenic was recently painted. No issues. The next day, a city truck arrived and a worker placed a round disc on the hydrant that reads, “City of Modesto property. Unauthorized use is theft.”
Seriously? What a colossal waste of money. We are laying off police officers and firefighters but the city has money to waste on these signs? No wonder Measure X failed. Even though the City Council said “trust us” on Measure X, this city proves – once again – how very fiscally irresponsible it is. Resident taxpayers need to revolt against government waste.
