$2,000 budgeted for flashlights and batteries for the City Police. Coincidentally, the same amount is budgeted for ammunition. These are the things you can learn from the 2003 Annual Estimates — City of Charlottetown.
The wonderful thing about the City of Charlottetown’s budget is because municipal government is relatively small, and concentrates on solving practical problems, their budget documents can actually be understood and grasped by real people.
The numbers are large, but no so large as to be incomprehensible.
Note to concerned citizens: the City spent more in 2002 on the Smart Communities project (about $205,000) than it spent for heritage preservation (about $88,000).
…102.5 years worth of batteries and flashlights…
2k isn’t a lot, but I wonder how cheap it would be if they used LED Flashlights
2K for 102.5 years? so after that it may be sell to another person with a better price i guess coz it is gonna be an 100s year item.
