This could spin into a whole new fact-finder's thread about how money is being just wasted.

With your permission, my little town of 5,000 (On a good, busy day) has planted 3,000 pine trees to replace a couple dozen that were lost to several hurricanes.

Of the thousands that were planted, less than 2% survive. Why? because the City won't spend the couple of hundred dollars to hook up water service to the island. The City Engineering Dept Office Manager is clueless; she allows the City forester (yep, we need a City Forester in a city that has NO forests....) to continue to plant seedlings in March instead of November.

Wasting tax paying dollars is rampant. That's my beef.

The house seems to be a deal at 1.2 million

I'm less concerned about the relocation policy, what kind of salaries is the post office paying these days for the guy to have a $1.2m house? Don't forget the lifetime pension and health benefits on top of that salary.
