Monday, Oct. 26, 2009 | More than just a graveyard, indeed. It’s an asset that could be converted into cash, instead of an annual $300k drain on the city treasury by simply selling it. But what does the bureaucracy do? Spends time on plans to spend more money to make it a “showplace” for nature and art.

With a $169 million deficit, called “structural” by the IBA, can there be a more fitting example of why this city, one of very few that runs cemeteries,is in deep trouble? Until someone cleans house, there is no way our financial problem will be faced, much less solved.
