They claimed it would not cost the taxpayers anything, then they say they will use leftover bond money. Which one is it. Are they using bond money, which has to be paid with interest, or is the cost nothing. I would like to know how much more than nothing, the contractors are going to be paid from tax or bond dollars. It is OK to renovate, but be truthful about how much the taxpayers have to cough up to pay off the bonds.
