In a quick session designed to give the city council staffs raises councilor Murphy testified that the city has 10.8 million dollars left over from fiscal 08 so there is plenty of money to give raises to all the city council staff. Approximately $350,000.
That should leave 10 million for the money the schools need, right?
Or maybe they will issue homeowners tax refund checks?

Amazing to me in these tough times that the city has 10 million it doesn't know what to do with, although granted this is not a huge amount percentage wise.
