Trust me, disc golf is not an essential service

I wrote yesterday about the "Frisbee-golf" spending in the recently proposed Lexington city budget. Brenna Angel from WUKY is reporting that the city council has accepted that budget however there were some dissenting votes.

Council member Dianne Lawless voted against the senseless spending additions in the budget and was quoted as saying:

"There are many things in here that are not essential services. And that's where we are right now."
According to the article, mayor Jim Gray plans to use his line item veto power with regards to the budget.

I commend those who can make tough budget decisions in tough times.
