Wreaths, tree beautiful, cost still a concern

Did we buy them? Did we rent them?

“I don’t know,” said Councilor Fred Capone about the city’s wreaths, which apparently cost $800 each.

“Can we get the individual cost of the wreaths and the tree and the vendor?” Capone asked.

He said they were beautiful but he wanted to know the cost.

Councilor Mike McLaughlin said the cost didn’t matter.

“I’d like to spend more money to bring good feelings to people right now,” said McLaughlin. He complimented the mayor.

Capone was questioning the cost for the wreaths, which is estimated at about $175,000.

CFO Eric Demas was asked to get this information back to the council as to the cost of the wreaths and the tree.

A motion requiring this information to be delivered passed unanimously 11-0.
