Bayview center was over budget a month after $8.25M vote

On Sept. 20, 2017, the Pensacola City Council approved a $8.25-million budget for a new Bayview Community Center. According to public records Inweekly received late last week, Caldwell Associates Architects gave the city a revised budget of nearly $8.4 million about a month later.  City CFO Dick Barker did not share this new estimate with the Pensacola City Council when he made his presentation two weeks ago – Oct 2017 construction cost.

What else is the Hayward administration hiding from the taxpayers?

  1. Are you suggesting that there might be something fishy going on here? Dick and Ashton are only doing whats best for the city and its citizens. Dick has 35 years experience in manipulating numbers and Ashton, well, he is our charismatic mayor, who invented gallery night, I think. Or was that Quint? Anyway, these men records should speak for themselves, dammit.
