Why is there such a huge delta between the low and high estimates of the police/fire admin building? $35 million to $65 million! Can we at least get the delta to within $5 million so we actually KNOW what we're voting for before you ask us our opinion on it? Take this building out of the bond, it's obviously not thought out enough to warrant serious consideration.

The current Police and Fire Admin Building is less than 30 years old. What's wrong with it?

Sure, we would love more park space, but then you would give it away for low-income or high-density housing. No need for new buildings of any kind.

The city should dialog with the Los Altos School District to see where they could creatively partner with their potential bond for a new school site, for things like shared park space and community center facilities in the San Antonio area.

EGADS ... what the heck is wrong with Mountain View as it is? The nation, California and our city is slowly coming out of a horrible economic time, and here the City Fathers and Mothers can't wait to spend millions and millions more. The police department might need upgrades, but all of the rest can wait or even be dumped. Ask yourself ... how often have you gone to the facility at Rengstorff? How important is a swimming facility, with costs and liabilities? Let's just hunker down and put money in the bank, buy silver, buy gold. Don't spend almost $200,000 — just to find out what is or is not wanted. Heck, put a questionnaire in with the water or garbage bill.
