Open Forum: All of the money comes from taxpayers
Imagine a department within the cities of Baxter or Brainerd spending $1,000 of their budget with the main reason being that they will receive $2,000 from Crow Wing County for the same project. In other words, spend money just because they would receive other funds as a result. Seems pretty silly and not a wise use of funds, doesn’t it?
