The leading reason Warne got the boot in every city he has served as city manager is his need to control every aspect of city business. The biggest thing that leads to his object failure as a city manager is his convoluted budgets that take the power of both the People and the Council out of the Equation.
The proposed 2012-2013 Twentynine Palms Budget is no exception. Millions are allocated to projects that have not been given a public hearing or a Council vote. It is an all or nothing package. Sort of like the Affordable Healthcare Bill…. The council has to pass it to find out what is in it.
SNAFU, FUBAR, Cluster F___, are some of the words that one is reminded of while reading the Warne budget Novel.
No budget should ever remove public scrutiny and the need for approvals by the Council for any project no matter how noble.
Try to decipher this mess yourself. See what we are talking about. You will see that Warne manages to jam an “I” in the word “Team.” If we would have wanted to hire a dictator we would have interviewed Raul Castro or Robert Mugabe.
The Proposed Budget FY2012-2013 will be discussed at a City Council Workshop and Public Hearing, beginning at 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 26, at Twentynine Palms City Hall, 6136 Adobe Road, 760-367-6799.
