After some dire budget issues traumatized the City Council the proposed feasibility study that would give Eureka a basis for making intelligent decisions on telecommunications issues was put off once again. The motion that passed indicated that the project would be re-visited in six months. As if the budget will magically get better by then. Not with this economy, and not with state budget troubles that will roll downhill to cities.

However, they did also agree that the issue could be brought up again sooner if staff could find alternate sources of funding. It’s likely that these sources will be found, and I was surprised that these alternatives were not part of tonight’s proposal. So, we’ll see.
