Though no local general funds are involved, city expenditure for UTC study is called into question; Cincinnati, OH

City may spend $65K to check trees The Cincinnati Enquirer:
Cincinnati might spend $65,000 on a flyover of the city to analyze its urban forest.
The issue is on the agenda of City Council's finance committee, which meets at 1 p.m. Chris Monzel, though he's not a member of the committee, plans to go this afternoon in hopes that Chairwoman Laketa Cole will let him express his concern about the expenditure.
'What the heck? What are our priorities for the city? What are we spending our money on?' the Republican asked this morning. 'Again, you don't go remodel your kitchen after you get laid off. It's about setting priorities.'
