• Reno’s current debt and pension obligations exceed $1 billion. Meanwhile, Council members continue to give away multi-million dollar City-owned properties to political supporters and/or rent them far below market value. • Instead of the entire Council collectively granting funding to various community activities throughout the year, EACH Council member receives $25,000 annually to specifically dole-out in their voting ward. The result is a blatant buying of votes for upcoming elections.
Why is the Council giving away and/or renting below market rate costly city properties that could be used to pay off our $1 billion debt? Why doesn’t the Council give community grants as a collective body, rather than letting each Council member have an individual slush fund for buying votes in their voting wards.
QOL-RENO’S SOLUTION FOR SOLVING THE WASTEFUL AND UNETHICAL SPENDING PRACTICES OF CITY COUNCIL
• Pass a Council policy requiring a marketplace rate for ALL City properties that are sold or rented • Eliminate the Council’s personal slush funds for individual members, and require that ALL community grants be approved and distributed by the entire Council.
