Wh Should Have Had A Plan

From the Herald article on the county budget hearing last night:  
Gimenez’s administration should have foreseen the budget gap and made a plan two years ago to sustain the system, librarian Ellen Book said. “Now the library’s financially bankrupted,” she said.

The speaker was talking about the libraries but this could be true of any budget woes.  

In North Bay Village the commission has been spending out of our reserves since 2012, a completely unsustainable situation and now our reserves are down to $50,000 according to the budget memo of July 16, 2013.   

But there's no plan to get spending under control.  It seems like the only plan all along was to raise millage for the same services.   That's not governance.  That's close your eyes and think positively.
